King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud
Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud is the King of Saudi Arabia, he was previously Crown Prince and Minister of Defense. Prince Salman is reported to be the 25th son of the late King Abdulaziz and member of the Sudairi Seven. Salman bin Abdulaziz was governor of Riyadh Province, until the death of his brother Crown Prince Sultan in 2011. Prince Salman was then appointed Minister of Defense, and named as a member of the National Security Council. In 2012 Prince Salman was appointed the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia after the death of his brother Nayef bin Abdulaziz. And in 2015 he became King when his half-brother Abdullah died. King Salman and his family are shareholders in the Saudi Research and Marketing Group which publishes daily papers as Arab News and Asharq Al-Awsat. In 1985 the second son of King Salman, Prince Sultan bin Salman, became the first person of royal blood, the first Arab, and first Muslim to fly in outer space aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery. More about King Salman here. In an April 2016 report, known as the Panama Papers, it was disclosed that King Salman is the ‘principal user’ of a motor yacht named Erga. We do not think that this information is correct, but the name Erga could be a code name. It is public knowledge that King Salman personally owns the yacht Tueq since 2002 And it is widely known that the yacht Prince Abdulaziz is the formal Royal Yacht of Saudi Arabia. (King Salman has been spotted on board several occasions). The Saudi Royal Family owns several yachts, such as Nourah of Riyad, Sarafsa, Montkaj and until recently Al Salamah. The King owns a Palace in Riyad named Erga. But we do not think a yacht named Erga exists. Do you have more information about King or his yachts? Please do send us a message.
