Beyonce was on the Yacht
In July 2018 Beyonce, Jay-Z, and their three children were relaxing on the yacht in Italy.
The Yacht was listed For Sale
In September 2018 MY Kismet was listed for sale at Moran Yachts.
His new Yacht
Around that same time, Moran revealed a new 116 meters project.
The boat is to be built at Lurssen yachts and is named Testarossa. We think this is the new yacht for Khan. We think so based on the timing and the color scheme of the new project.
Update: It seems that Testarossa is the new yacht for Michael Lee Chin, the Canadian / Jamaican billionaire. He was also the commissioning owner of the Lurssen Quattroelle. (During the yacht’s launch, Testarossa had a Canadian flag on her bow).
Lurssen Project Gaja
Update 2: We found that the 125 meter Project Gaja is the new Kismet boat. She will be delivered in 2023.
The text of a press release by Moran Yachts. “Moran Yacht & Ship is delighted to announce the sale of another new build. The 380′ (116m) Lurssen Project TESTAROSSA.
