$80Million Superyacht Owned by Saudi Prince Looks Less Impressive After Accident in Athens

A £65million ($80million) superyacht owned by a Saudi prince was being lifted out of the water for repairs while in dock when it capsized.

The luxury 230ft Nourah of Riyad ended up partially submerged underwater.

The liner boasts 11 cabins for up to 18 guests including a master suite and VIP stateroom.

The 1415 tonne yacht – owned by Saudi prince Prince Turki bin Mohamed bin Fahd Al Saud – also has a Jacuzzi on deck and a cinema on board.

But it looks slightly less impressive after the accident in Athens, Greece.

The ship was being lifted out of the water for work to be carried out on it when the accident happened, it is understood.

It ended up listed at a 45 degree angle and was partially submerged in the water.

Yacht fan Phil Wiseman commented on the incident online: ‘Insured so he will just get another one.

‘Probably even bigger.’

One person added: ‘Ouch….that is going to cost a pretty penny.’

The yacht was built by Yachtley in Turkey in 2008. Its interior and exterior are designed by Donald Starkey.
