Sarafsa Yacht News

Length:82 m (269 ft)
Price:US$ 150 million
Owner:Prince Fahd bin Sultan


Jan 5 2022, Credit Suisse Pursuing Prince Fahad bin Sultan in Court.

Credit Suisse is alleging that Saudi Prince Fahd bin Sultan failed to repay the bank around $78 million in interest and loans.

He took out the loans to refinance his superyacht Sarafsa and a mansion in England.

The Swiss bank stated that two companies owned by Prince Fahd defaulted on two loans. The Prince is the guarantor of the loans.

According to court documents, the yacht has a value of $65 million. (Which seems a bit low for a yacht with a volume of more than 3,000 tons)

The prince’s lawyers have yet to file defense papers.


What started as a ‘yacht spotter’ hobby, turned into a fast-growing yachting site with thousands of unique daily visitors.

In 2009 SuperYachtFan in its current format was published online and soon the focus changed from ‘yacht photos’ to ‘yacht owners’, creating the Super Yacht Owners Register. A database with more than 1,450 yacht owners.

This was an instant success as many people around the world are interested in, or curious about, these multi-million dollar yachts and their wealthy owners. (Luxury travels of the Billionaire Boys Club)
