The motor yacht was built at Devonport Yachts in England. To a design of H2 Yacht Design. And with Laurent Giles as naval architect. The luxury yacht has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure.

Yacht Interior

She can accommodate 18 guests and a crew of 20. Samar has large pool, a gymnasium, a cinema and several bar areas.

She has an opulent interior, designed by Joe Thome. The luxury yacht is powered by 3 Wärtsilä diesel-electric engines, which drive 2 propellers. Her top speed is 17 knots. Her cruise speed is 12.5 knots. And she has a range of 6,000nm.

A Mini Cooper and a Helicopter

The yacht carries several toys, including a Mini Cooper and a Bell 407 helicopter.

The helicopter with registration N407MS is registered to the US-based Wilmington Trust of Delaware.

Devonport Yachts was acquired by Pendennis Shipyard in 2010.  The pictures on this page were made by Ship-Dreams.

Samar Owner

Superyacht Samar is owned by Kuwaiti Kutayba Alghanim. SuperYachtFan received information that she is actually US-owned. And this makes sense as Mr. Alghanim resides in the USA.

SuperYachtFan found that Kutayba owns two New York residences. A large mansion in Manhattan, and a 48-acre estate on Long Island. The Long Island estate is listed for sale asking US$ 55 million.

Helicopter

She is also often seen with another helicopter, with registration N477KA. KA will probably refer to the owner’s name… So Samar is indeed owned by Alghanim.

Is She Available for Yacht Charter?

The boat is available for yacht charter.  And she was listed for sale. As her owner is replacing her with a larger yacht. We were told that the 108 meter Benetti FB 272 named yacht ZoZa is the replacement for Samar. But in April 2020 she was named Luminosity and listed for sale. We heard about ‘some issues’ between the owner and the yard.
