Kutayba Alghanim

Superyacht Samar is rumored to be owned by Kuwaiti Kutayba Alghanim, although SuperYachtFan received unconfirmed information that she is actually US owned. Her interior styling and the fact that she is available for charter - which is not typical for Middle Eastern owners - would also indicate that she has a US owner. On the other hand.. She is also often seen with another helicopter, with registration N477KA. KA will probably refer to the owners name… So probably Samar is indeed owned by Kutayba Alghanim. Update: SuperYachtFan found that Kutayba owns two New York residences: a large mansion in Manhattan, and a 48 acre estate on  Long Island.
