Loaloat al Behar (Ex-Al Said)
LENGTH: 340ft. 7in. (103.9m)
SHIPYARD: Picchiotti, Italy
Al Said, launched at the Picchiotti shipyard in Viareggio in 1982, was until recently the private yacht of Oman’s Emir and was the largest yacht built in Italy to date (that changed with Serene). The steel yacht has a 53-foot-beam and is powered by twin 4,200-hp GM A420-6 diesel engines for an 18-knot top speed. Since taking delivery of the new Al Said, now No. 3 on our list, the Emir had the yacht converted and renamed Loaloat al Behar (shown at the 2010 Abu Dhabi Show). It has all that is required for fun times at sea, including Jacuzzis, a cinema, bars and diving equipment. The revamped yacht received a new coat of white paint, a modernized interior and a complete Lantic entertainment system during a 2009 refit. She is available for charter through Fraser Yachts’ Monaco office. She cruises mostly in the Middle East, including the beautiful fjords of Oman.
