Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud is the King of Saudi Arabia. He was previously Crown Prince and Minister of Defense. King Salman is the 25th son of the late King Abdulaziz and member of the Sudairi Seven.
He was born in 1935 and was raised in Murabba Palace in Riyadh. The complex of palaces was built in order of King Abdulaziz.
Salman bin Abdulaziz was governor of Riyadh Province, until the death of his brother Crown Prince Sultan in 2011.

He purch ased the yachts in 2014 and 2015 and send them both to Damen in the Netherlands for a refit.
MBS is a very influential figure in the Middle East.
