In 2013 superyacht Al Salamah was put for sale with an asking price of USD 280 million. Later she was de-listed and we were informed that she was transferred as a gift to the Crown Prince of Bahrain.
Although we were contacted by the Court of the Crown Prince of Bahrain, stating that HRH the Crown Prince is not, and never has been, the owner of the yacht Al Salamah.
They did not give an explanation of why Al Salamah has been flying the Bahraini Flag for many months. The Royal Family of Bahrain now owns the yacht AL RAYA.
The yacht’s owner is the King of Saudi Arabia. She was for a few years owned by Prince Salman bin Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
