The yacht was built as Dilbar for Alisher Usmanov. He named her Ona when his new yacht was delivered. She was sold and named Al Raya.

M/Y Al Raya

Al Raya was built at Lurssen to a design of Tim Heywood. She was launched in 2008 as Dilbar.  The 110 meter yacht is powered by two MTU diesel-electric engines. Which bring her a top speed of 21 knots.


The interior of the yacht Raya is designed by Alberto Pinto. Raya can accommodate 16 passengers and 47 crew. Her features include  a large pool and a cinema. Further she has a sauna and steam room, a massage room and a hospital. The owners deck includes a very large office and a conference room.

There are 21 crew cabins and 4 staff cabins. The crew has its own gym. The captains cabin includes a dressing room and private office. There is even a security room, from where all movement in and around the yacht is monitored. We have some rare interior photos of the yacht Raya.

Built for Alisher Usmanov

Raya was built as Dilbar for Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov. Usmanov is one of the richest Russians, and known for owning Metalloinvest, a leading global iron ore and HBI producer and supplier.

He is also a co-owner of UTH Russia, one of the Russia’s fastest growing commercial television broadcasters.

His channels include the Disney Channel, U channel and MUZ-TV channel. And he owns Megafon and Mail. Ru. His net worth is US$ 13 billion.

Yacht Ona

In 2016 his new yacht Dilbar (the world’s largest yacht) was delivered. The old Dilbar was listed for sale asking EUR 250 million. The yacht was renamed into Ona.

Usmanov had done the same with his previous yacht the 66 meter Oceanco, built as Dilbar. He named her also Ona, when he listed her for sale.

Owned by the Royal Family of Bahrain

In 2018 Ona was sold and named Raya. Soon we received messages that Raya was owned by the Bahrain Royal family. And that could be possible. As there is a link between the name Raya and Bahrain.

There is the Al Raya Mall and we are aware of a Sheikha Raya bint Khalifa al-Khalifa. Who’s great great grandfather was once Ruler of Bahrain.

But we have not yet identified the actual owner of the luxury yacht. Do you know who owns Raya? Please do send us a message.


The Kingdom of Bahrain is an island country in the Persian Gulf. The sovereign state comprises a small archipelago centered around Bahrain Island. It is situated between the Qatar peninsula and the north eastern coast of Saudi Arabia. Bahrain's population is 1.2 million.

Bahrain is ruled by the House of Khalifa family. It is headed by King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa. He is owner of the yacht Al Waeli.

Yacht Charter

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