The yacht 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 owner’s 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 captain’s cabin includes a dressing room and a 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 is 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 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.
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 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.
Who is the Owner of the Yacht AL RAYA?
The yacht’s owner is The King of Bahrain King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, who has been on the throne since 1999.
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.
Update: we were told she is actually owned by the King of Bahrain.
How Much is the Al RAYA Yacht?
Her value is $250 million. Her annual running costs are around $25 million. The price of a yacht can vary greatly depending on a number of factors, including the size, age, and level of luxury of the yacht, as well as the cost price of materials and technology used in its construction.
