Superyacht Falcon Lair - ex White Cloud - ex New Horizon L

Falcon Lair (formerly White Cloud and New Horizon L) is a 67.30m (220.80ft) superyacht, custom built in 1983 by Feadship (Royal Van Lent) in Kaag, the Netherlands. She was built for Dutch millionaire Bram van Leeuwen, also known as Prince de Lignac. For long she was known as one of the most expensive yachts ever built. With most of the interior fittings in gold and bathtubs made of Lapiz Lazuli.  The yacht was Bram van Leeuwen’s full time residence. After his death White Cloud was purchased by Craig McCaw, who sent her for a refit in 2004 to Peters Schiffbau in Germany. She was lengthened and had a new deckhouse added. White Cloud was sold in 2014 and is now named Falcon Lair.
