Although currently owned by Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the ruler of the Emirate of Dubai, the yacht was originally commissioned by Prince Jefri Bolkiah of Brunei. Construction was originally delayed until 2001, when Sheik Mohammed bought out the project for a rumored $300 million.
The vessel includes luxurious interior designs that include fine fabrics and handmade mosaics, a dramatic spiral staircase with color-changing glass steps, numerous VIP and guest suites and seven decks.
The Dubai also has a mosaic swimming pool, several whirlpools and a landing pad that can service a helicopter in excess of 10 tons. The Dubai has room for 115 people, including crew and guest staff and boasts a range of 8,500 miles.
