Katara 124m Super yacht owned by Qatar royal family

SuperYacht Katara

The yacht Katara is one of the World’s largest yachts. She is built by Lurssen en was delivered to her owner, the Emir of Qatar, in 2010. She was designed by Espen Oeino with an interior design by Alberto Pinto. Not much is known about her interior, but from one of the photo’s hereunder it can be concluded that her main deck saloon has a height of two decks. The yacht has a length of 124 meters (408 ft), making her the 14th largest yacht in the world, although measured by volume, she would rank much higher. She has gross tonnage of 7922t and can reach a max speed of 20 knots. The superyacht is registered in Doha, Qatar.

Luxury yacht Katara was delivered to the Emir of Qatar in 2010. At that moment the Emir of Qatar was Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani. Sheikh Hamad was appointed Heir Apparent of Qatar in 1977 and became Emir in 1995. Sheikh Hamad is famous for supporting the startup of the Arabian news network, Al Jazeera which he provided with a USD 130 million loan. Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani has an estimated net worth of USD 2.5 billion. In June 2013 Sheikh Hamad abdicated as Emir. His forth son Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, born in 1980 is now the Emir of Qatar. Qatar has a population of approx. 2 million people, and is one of the richest countries in the world. Qatar has the highest GDP per capita in the world. Qatar is the leading exporter of liquefied natural gas. It is actually possible that the yacht Katara is not owned by the Emir himself, but that she is owned by Sheikh Nawaf Bin Jassim Bin Jabor Al-Thani. Sheikh Nawaf Bin Jassim Bin Jabor Al-Thani is the chairman of the Katara Hospitality group. The sheikh also owned the Overmarine Sharq, now sold and renamed Al Asmakh. Sharq was registered to the Katara Hospitality group. Katara is frequently spotted with an Eurocopter with registration A7-HMD, this would support the she is owned by Sheikh Hamad, Emir of Qatar.
