For $35 million, you can buy a piece of royal history. The superyacht’s most recent owner, Sheikh Hamdan bin Maktoum, purportedly the Crown Prince of Dubai, has now listed the floating castle for sale with Worth Avenue Yachts.
Before being refit into a superyacht, Cantiere Navale Ferrari built this boat as a cruise ship
The ship provides ample space for outdoor living
Dubawi is his name. The ship was built in 1989 by Cantiere Navale Ferrari. It did, however, operate as a cruise liner for the first fifty years of its existence. After the current owner purchased the vessel in 2009, Platinum Yachts converted it into a private superyacht. The boat has only had one owner since receiving a multimillion-dollar, two-year renovation, which is unusual for a vessel of this size and class. Only those invited on board have had access to the interior, making it one of the most private yachts in its class.
Geometric decor is present throughout the yacht
The enormous ship has a gross tonnage of 4,184, can carry 44 guests, has 22 staterooms, and has a volume similar to a 110-meter yacht. A nightclub with a lit dance floor, a guest lounge, two salons, an elevator, a fountain, a swimming platform, a hospital room, and a private owner’s deck with 180-degree views and a jacuzzi are just a few of the lavish amenities that can be found there thanks to the building’s enormous size.
The fully furnished nightclub is located on the lower deck
Although the yacht’s characteristics are outstanding, they are not unusual for a vessel of this size. However, the room’s Art Deco interior design and decor, which features deep purples, blues, greens, and oranges, is a rare sight. The ship is decorated with geometric patterns and regal furnishings, in addition to brilliant colors.
Typically associated with royalty, purple motifs are prevalent throughout the yacht
The interiors were designed by Platinum Yacht’s in-house interior design team, who utilized a wide variety of materials, such as marble, rare woods, mosaic tiling, and custom carpeting.
This dining area ensures that there is sufficient space for all 44 people who can sleep on board
There is enough room in both salons to install new facilities, such as a theater or game room, if the yacht’s arrangement does not suit the new owner. The ship was put through a series of maintenance inspections before being put on the market to make sure it will continue to operate properly for whoever buys it.
The space is truly fit for a king or queen
