Yacht Waku - Samark Lopez

Samark Lopez is the owner of two yachts, both named Waku. Lopez is a Venezuelan businessman with close ties to the government.


Samark Lopez oversees an international network of petroleum, distribution, engineering, telecommunications, and asset holding companies:  Alfa One, C.A. (Venezuela), Grupo Sahect, C.A.

Net Worth

There is not much information about the net worth of Samark Lopez available, but given the fact that he owns a group of large companies, two yachts and a Gulfstream private jet, we estimate his net worth at several hundred million dollar.

US Sanctions List

The United States Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control, has placed the sitting vice president of Venezuela, Tareck El Aissami, as well as Samark Lopez on its sanctions list. The listing is made pursuant to the authority that targets foreign narcotics traffickers. The allegations relate to Mr. El Aissami’s purported role in drug trafficking. According to Mr Samark’s personal website, the listing provides no factual evidence or legal justification as to why Samark Lopez should be placed on the list, other than that Samark Lopez and Tareck El Aissami are personal acquaintances.  According to Samark the listing appears to be politically motivated

Private Jet

Lopez owns a Gulfstream G200 private jet with registration N200VR. A Gulfstream 200 has a market value of around US$ 5 million.
