Prince Jeffrey of Brunei
The yacht was originally planned for Prince Jeffrey of Brunei. The brother of the Sultan of Brunei. Construction started in 1996 in a collaboration between Lurssen Yachts and Blohm & Voss.
Around 2000 Prince Jeffrey suffered some legal problems with the State of Brunei. And he was forced to abandon the project. In 2001 the hull was acquired by Platinum Yachts in Dubai. And the project was finished as Royal Yacht for the Ruler of Dubai in 2006.
Dubai Royal Family Yachts
The Al Maktoum family owns many yachts including Dubawi and the Silver Yacht Smeralda. Both are probably owned by Sheikh Mohammed’s son. Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
The yacht Dubawi is a converted cruise ship. Also the yachts Quattroelle and Quattroelle Shadow are owned by the Royal Family. Reportedly by the Crown Prince.
Sheikh Mohammed’s son 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.
Dubai can accommodate 48 guests in 24 cabins. And she has a crew and staff of 88. She is designed by Andrew Winch. The Dubai yacht was delivered in 2006.
Her features include a large pool, a disco, and a garage for the yacht’s submarine.
The family frequently uses the yacht, but mainly for day trips near Dubai. The Al Maktoum Family is active on Instagram. And many photos of the family using the yacht can be found online.
