Our Super Yacht Owners Database: more than 1,100 Yachts and Yacht Owners.

Prince Mohammad is a son of King Salman of Saudi Arabia. He is the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia and is known as MBS. He also owns the yacht Serene


Lightning 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 o ne of the largest yachts in the world.

She has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure. The yacht is powered by 2 Deutz engines. Which bring her a top speed of 18 knots. Her cruise speed is 16 knots. She has a large range of 7,000nm.

Yacht 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 Ron 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.

Prince Mohammad (MBS)

In June 2014 Pegasus V was sold again, to Prince Mohammed 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.


Pegasus VIII was send to the Netherlands, to have an intensive refit.

In 2020 the yacht leaved the Netherlands again, with a different hull paint and now named Lightning.

Serene Yacht

In 2015 he also bought Yuri Shefler’s yacht Serene. In October 2016 both Pegasus and Serene were in Vlissingen, the Netherlands for a refit.

Is She Available for Yacht Charter?

The boat is not available for yacht charter. And she is not listed for sale.

He was born in August 1985. He married Princes Sara bint Mashoor bin Abdulaziz Al Saud in 2008. They have 3 or 4 children.

The Youngest Defense Minister in the World

He is born in 1985, which makes him the youngest minister of defense in the world. Prince Mohammed is a son of King Salman and his third wife. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed is one of the most influential people in the Middle East.

He has close ties to the US White House and especially with Jared Kushner. Kushner is married to President Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump.

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.

He is also Chairman of the Board of the King Salman Youth Center. Which was established as an initiative from Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz. To strengthen the efforts of the Kingdom in its care and support of the youth.

His net worth is estimated between US$ 1 billion and US$ 10 billion.

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 the Crown Prince 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 the Crown Prince 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.

Prince Mohammed Palace

The Prince owns many residences including a castle in France. We think his main residence is the Al Yamamah Palace in Riyadh. He also uses the Royal Erga Palace also in Riyadh.

Private Jet

The Prince has access to the full Saudi Arabia Royal Fleet. The fleet includes several Boeing 747 private jets. We think he often uses the HZ-HM1 a 747 built in 2001.

Chateau Louis XIVChateau Louis XIV

Chateau Louis XIV is a castle built between 2008 and 2011 near Paris, France. In 2015 his Royal Highness 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 Vinci named Salvator Mundi for US$ 450 million. Later is became clear that he had been bidding against Sheikh Mansour al Nahyan. He is a 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.
