Discover the Lavish Samar Yacht with 18 Guests Capacity

Built at Devonport Yachts in England, the motor yacht Samar is a stunning example of luxury and opulence. The yacht has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, designed by H2 Yacht Design and naval architect Laurent Giles. The yacht was launched in 2006 and underwent a refit in 2017.

A Look Inside the Yacht

The Samar yacht has a spacious interior designed by Joe Thome. The yacht can accommodate up to 18 guests and 20 crew members. The yacht has several entertainment areas, including a large pool, a gymnasium, a cinema, and numerous bar areas. Guests can indulge in a lavish stay onboard Samar and enjoy the luxury of her spacious cabins and amenities.

Unmatched Performance and Range

Powered by 3 Wärtsilä diesel-electric engines, which drive two propellers, the Samar yacht has an impressive performance. The yacht can reach a maximum speed of 17 knots and has a cruising speed of 12.5 knots. With a range of 6,000nm, guests can sail to their heart’s content and explore some of the world’s most beautiful destinations.

Mini Cooper and a Bell 407 Helicopter

The Samar 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. The helicopter adds an extra level of adventure to the yacht, allowing guests to explore the surroundings and take in the stunning views from above.

The Samar yacht is a testament to luxury and design. The yacht has been the envy of many and a preferred choice of those who want to experience the ultimate luxury yacht charter. Devonport Yachts was acquired by Pendennis Shipyard in 2010, and the Samar yacht is an excellent addition to their portfolio of luxury yacht offerings.  The pictures on this page were made by Ship-Dreams.

Who is the Owner of the Yacht SAMAR?

Superyacht Samar is owned by Kuwaiti billionaire 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.


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.

How Much is the SAMAR Yacht Price?

Her value is $100 million. Her annual running costs are around $10 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 materials and technology used in its construction.

Devonport Yachts

Devonport Yachts was a British yacht builder based in Plymouth, England. The company specialized in the design and construction of bespoke luxury yachts. Since 2011 the company is part of Pendennis. The company build just 5 – large – yachts, Vava II, Sarafsa, Samar, Alamshar, and Aquarella.

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.
