Yacht Name: Pegasus VIII - Yacht Length: 79 m (258 ft) - Guests: 12 in 6 cabins - Crew: 26 in 12 cabins - Yacht Value: US$ 125 million -

Owners Name: Prince Mohammad bin Salman Al Saud - Owners Net Worth: US$ 1 billion + - Owners Company: n.a. Saudi Royal - Owners Country: Saudi Arabia -

Prince Mohammad is a son of King Salman of Saudi Arabia.  He is the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia and is known as MBS. The Crown Prince also owns the yacht Serene, which was built for Yuri Shefler.

Motor Yacht Pegasus VIII

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.

Royal Denship

The yacht was built by Royal Denship and delivered in 2002. At delivery she was one of the largest yachts in the world.

Yacht Pegasus Interior

She is designed by Espen Oeino, while Zuretti is responsible for her interior. The tender garage is a float-in dry dock, which can be flooded to create a 12 meter swimming pool.

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.

Chase boat Moon Goddess

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).

Purchased by Ton Tutor

She was purchased by California based construction tycoon Ronald Tutor. He named her Pegasus V. He previously owned several other yachts all named Pegasus.

Now Owned by Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MBS)

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.

Prince Mohammad is an active philanthropist, and founder of the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Foundation.

The Foundation, known as MISK, enables young Saudis to learn, develop and progress in the fields of business, literature, culture, science and technology, and sociology.

Mohammed bin Salman is also Chairman of the Board of the King Salman Youth Center which was established as an initiative from King Salman Bin Abdulaziz, to strengthen the efforts of the Kingdom in its care and support of the youth.

The Prince also owns the Yacht Serene

He is owner of the yacht Pegasus since the summer of 2014. And according to a NY Times article, Prince Mohammad also bought Yuri Shefler’s yacht Serene in 2015.

And, probably not a coincidence, in October 2016 both Serene and Pegasus were in Vlissingen, the Netherlands at a refit yard.

Eight Investment Limited.

In December 2017 is was disclosed that Prince Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz al Said is the buyer of the US$ 300 million French castle ‘Chateau Louis XIV’.

The castle has been bought with the company Eight Investment Limited, which manages the Prince’s wealth. The same company was also used to buy the yachts Serene and Pegasus VIII.

Chateau Louis XIVChateau Louis XIV

Chateau Luois XIV is a castle built between 2008 and 2011 near Paris, France. In 2015 Prince Mohammad bought the castle for US$ 300 million from Cogemad, the property developer owned by Emad Kashoggi.

It is considered to be the most expensive private residence in the world. The castele features include a large indoor swimming pool, a cinema for 12, a garage for 8 cars, a saferoom and a night club.

Da Vinci Painting

In December 2017 the Crown Prince bought a famous paining by Da Vince named Salvator Mundi for US$ 450 million. Later is became clear that he had been bidding against Sheikh Mansour al Nahyan, member of the Royal Family of the United Arab Emirates.

Sheikh Mansour later gifted his yacht Topaz to Prince Mohammed, to ‘compensate’ for the increased price. Sheikh Mansour is building a new and even bigger yacht.
