The yacht Pegasus was built as Princess Mariana for Mexican billionaire Carlos Peralta. The yacht is now owned by the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.
The yacht was built by Royal Denship and delivered in 2002. At delivery she was one of the largest yachts in the world.
She is designed by Espen Oeino, while Zuretti is responsible for her interior. The tender garage is a float-
Other features include a helicopter pad, which can turn into a golf driving range, a large cinema, and a part deck with dance floor, barbeque, spa pool and bars.
The yacht had a large 35 meter (115ft) chase boat named Moon Goddess, also built in Denmark.
Powered by 7500hp MTU’s, Moon Goddess can reach a top speed of 45 knots. In 2008 Princess Mariana was put for sale with an asking price of EUR 125 million (US$ 140 million).
She was purchased by California based construction tycoon Ronald Tutor. He named her Pegasus V. He previously owned several other yachts all named Pegasus.
In June 2014 Pegasus V was sold again, to Prince Mohammad bin Salman Al Saud. He named her Pegasus VIII, which seems to be an intermediate name. The III in the yacht’s logo is clearly in a different color than the V.
It is expected that Pegasus VIII will have an intensive refit, and will then receive her final name.
In 2015 Prince Mohammad also bought Yuri Shefler’s yacht Serene. In October 2016 both Pegasus and Serene were in Vlissingen, the Netherlands for a refit.
