Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum Yacht - Yacht Name: Smeralda - Yacht Length: 77 m ( 252 ft)  - Guests: 12 in 6 cabins - Crew: 24 in 12 cabins - Builder: Silver Yachts - 2012 - Yacht Value: US$ 70 million - Al Maktoum Net Worth: US$ 5 billion - Owners Country: Dubai - Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed al Maktoum is the Crown Prince of Dubai

Yacht Smeralda -   Crown Prince HH Sheikh Hamdan

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum is the owner of the yacht Smeralda. Sheikh Hamdan is the Crown Prince of Dubai.

Hamdan bin Mohammed Al MaktoumDubai Royal Family

Sheikh Hamdan is the son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, the Ruler of Dubai. He is a descendant of the House of Al-Falasi, of which Sheikh Mohammed is the tribal leader. Hamdan is Chairman of the Dubai executive council and President of Hamdan Bin Mohammed Smart University.

Net Worth

The net worth of the Al Maktoum family is estimated at US$ 5 billion.

Sheikh Hamdan Palace

Sheikh Hamdan reportedly lives in a large complex of several palaces, where all his family members live. The area is called Za’abeel, and houses the Zabeel Palace, which was the official residence of Sheikh Rashid, the grandfather of Sheikh Hamdan. Hamdan reportedly also owns a palace in Abu Dhabi and a desert palace in Dubai.

Social Media

Sheikh Hamdan is very active on social media, such as Facebook and Instagram. He uses the name Fazza or Faz3. He is an active horse rider, diver and a semi-professional skydiver. He frequently publishes photos of himself, for example when skydiving towards the yacht Dubai.

Yacht Smeralda

Smeralda was built at Silver Yachts and was delivered in 2012. The 77 meter yacht can accommodate 12 guests and a crew of 24. Smeralda is designed by Espen Oeino, while Vain Interiors is responsible for her interior. The yacht was already named Smeralda before she was bought by Sheikh Hamdan, so the name is not directly related to the family. Smeralda’s sister yacht Rabdan is owned by the Royal Family of Abu Dhabi.

Dubai Royal Family Yachts

The family owns many yachts including Dubai, Dubawi and the Silver Yacht Esmeralda. The yacht Dubawi is a converted cruise ship. Also the yachts Quattroelle and Quattroelle Shadow are owned by the Royal Family, but we are not sure by which family members.  Some sources state that Quattroelle is also owned by Sheikh Hamdan. Sheikh Hamdan’s brother Mansoor is the owner of the Benetti Yacht Code 8. We also think that the Benetti DXB is owned by the Al Maktoum family and the Trinity Sapphire was owned by the family, but sold in 2014.
