Who is Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan?

Motor yacht Azzam is built for Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. He is the Emir of Abu Dhabi. And President of the United Arab Emirates (UAE – Emirates). He was born in January 1948. He is married to Sheikha Shamsa bint Suhail Al Mazrouei. He has 8 children.

Superyachtfan comes to this conclusion as several highly regarded superyacht sites mention HE Mubarak Bin Saad Al Ahbabi as being related to the Azzam yacht project. HE Mubarak Bin Saad Al Ahbabi is the United Arab Emirates’ Chairman of the President’s Private Department.

Team Azzam

Also Team Azzam is the official Abu Dhabi Volvo Ocean Racing Team, again linking Azzam to Abu Dhabi. Azzam means ‘determination’ in Arabic.

So Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan is probably the owner of luxury yacht Azzam. In the meantime we know that the yacht is permanently based in Abu Dhabi.

Emir of Abu Dhabi Palace

The Presidential Palace is named Qasr Al Watan. It is home to the UAE Supreme Council and Federal Cabinet. It has cost more than US$ 500 million.

We are not sure if the Ruler of Abu Dhabi lives here, or in Qa?r al Mushrif Palace or in Al Bateen Palace. He also has a residence in Evian, France.

Burj Khalifa

In 2010, the world’s tallest man-made structure, originally known as Burj Dubai, was renamed to Burj Khalifa, in honor of the Sheikh.

She has a height of 830 m (2,722 ft) including the antenna and a roof height of 828 m (2,717 ft). It took 5 years to complete the building.


Sheikh Khalifa is an active philanthropist. Among several donations, the Sheikh has pledged US$ 150 million to the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center to establish a cancer treatment clinic.

His Previous Yacht

The Emir previously owned a smaller yacht with the name Azzam. This yacht is now named Adamas II and is owned by Digital Multimedia Technologies founder Allesandro Falciai. His company merged with Silvio Berlusconi’s Mediaset in 2011.

Al Nahyan Family Yachts

Sheikh Khalifa’s half-brother Hamdan is the owner of the yacht Yas. And his other half-brother Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan is the owner of the 147 meter yacht Topaz. So the brothers owns already 3 yachts in the world’s top 10 of biggest yachts.
