#5: ISHAM AL BAHER—379'0"
This 35-year-old yacht has been undergoing an extensive refit in Greece since last year. As of presstime we had no word on what the scope of the project was nor whether the yacht would be departing. She's registered in Jeddah and was a gift to the late King Fahd of Saudi Arabia; his heirs have kept the yacht since his death.
