Enigma (Phocea)- 75 meter (246 ft) - refit at Lurssen

French newspaper Le Monde disclosed in an article today that French billionaire Xavier Niel is the owner of the sailing yacht Phocea (now: Enigma) and it seems he is not denying his ownership of the yacht.




Xavier Niel

Niel is co-owner of Le Monde, internet provider #Free and Monaco Telecom (officiel). His net worth is US$ 9.2 billion. Niel has a relation with Delphine Arnault, daughter of French billionaire Bernard Arnault (owner of the yacht #Sympony).


Phocea

Phocea was built in 1976 for French sailor Alain Colas, who named her Club Méditerranée. Later she was purchased by Bernard Tapie, who named her La Vie Claire after his French chain of health product stores.



In 1997 the yacht was purchased by Mona #Ayoub, known as the ex-wife of Saudi billionaire Nasser al Rasheed (owner of the yacht Lady Moura). Mona Ayoub sent her to Lürssen for a $17 million dollar refit. In 2010 Ayoub sold Phocea to Xavier Niel, who reportedly just sees the yacht as an investment.




Paskal Saken

In the last few years the yacht has been 'managed' or used by Vanuatu based business man Paskal Saken, but if we understand the French article correctly, she is still owned by Xavier Niel.

Jubilee - 110 meter (361ft) - Oceanco

The yacht, known as project Y714 ‘Jubilee’ is built for the Royal Family of Qatar, Al Thani. Dutch magazine Quote comes to this conclusion after research which revealed that the project under construction is registered to Al Menwar Limited.



Al Menwar (now known as Yaakun) is a 66 meter yacht built in  1987 for the the (then) Emir of Qatar, Khalifa bin Hamad al-Thani. He died in October 2016, which could be the reason why the yacht is now for sale (asking a rumored EUR 275 million).
