TRUMP PRINCESS – KINGDOM 5KR
Kingdom 5KR is an 85.65m superyacht built for Saudi Billionaire Adnan Khashoggi $100 Million in 1980 ($291 Million in 2016) one of the largest yachts in the world (now ranking 60th).
It was originally built as Nabila for Saudi billionaire Adnan Khashoggi. During its days as Nabila, it was featured in the James Bond movie Never Say Never Again, in which it was seen as Flying Saucer (translated from Italian Disco Volante in the source novel, Thunderball), the villain’s superyacht mobile HQ. It was also the inspiration for a track, “Khashoggi’s Ship”, on the 1989 album by the rock band Queen, The Miracle.
After Khashoggi ran into financial problems, he sold the yacht in 1988 to the Sultan of Brunei, who in turn sold it to Donald Trump for $29 million. After a refit, Trump renamed it Trump Princess. Trump sold it when he ran into financial problems in 1991 to Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal for $20 million.
The ship has a beam of 13.25 metres (43.5 ft), a draught of 4.72 metres (15.5 ft) and fuel capacity of 515,000 litres (136,000 US gallons). The last few years Kingdom 5KR seems to stay unmoved at the IYCA in Antibes. In June 2016 she left for maintenance to a dry dock in Genua, Italy.
