World’s 100 Largest Yachts 2007 #25: Kingdom 5KR

#25: KINGDOM 5KR—281'9"

Since Prince Alwaleed of Saudi Arabia cancelled plans for a 500-foot-plus yacht, he's still enjoying this Benetti. If you see a picture of her or see her in person in her usual port of the IYCA in Antibes, France, don’t think your eyes are fooling you: She truly is painted beige, to mimic the color of sand. Made famous by Adnan Khashoggi, who commissioned her, and then Donald Trump, who acquired her prior to the Prince, the yacht has an abundance of glittering gold hardware and surfaces inside.

Y: 1980; B: M&B Benetti, Italy; N: Jon Bannenberg/builder; H: steel; E: 2/3,000-hp Nohab Polars
