It's good to be the king: Besides Prince Abdulaziz, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia also owns this yacht. The half brother of the late King Fahd has owned her for many years, extending back to when he was "just" a prince. In those days he liked to keep her in Greece in the winters but based at the royal compound in Jeddah in the summers. She's presently based in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.
