Called The Platinum, it is being built in the Middle East and will be the biggest yacht ever.



Abramovich, 38, splashed out a rumoured 72million this year on a 282ft yacht called Ecstasea.



It doesnt say whether the yacht is being built specifically for Princess Haya.
Its for her husband..which means that his other wives might have use of it too.

You are right Humera..It does not say the yacht is specifically for Haya..but since she is the most current wife of Mo and the only Mo's wife we have a thread in the forum, i put the title of my post: Haya will have a Yacht. And also to draw attention to this yacht because people in this forum tend to read more about Haya than about her husband.

I dont think it'll be a present for Haya, i guess Mo is going to share it between Shk Hind & Haya.

when you go to view 'model homes' they have all the bells and whistles so that a prospective owner can see the builders abilities. this yacht is the same thing. a quasi-govt company is building it and it is being used as a showpiece to show the rest of the world what abilities the company has. dubai has for many years been trying to lure the high dollar yachts from the med to come and spend their off season in dxb and get their maintenance and any other work done there. this is just another marketing scheme.

it is not a present to hind, haya or any other woman who has had the misfortune of bedding mo. it is a business deal.

mo has about as much personal interest in yachting and the sea as he does in instituting real democratic reforms in the emirates.

That's just too much money to spend on a boat. Ridiculous.

It's rare that he looks happy in any of his photos...at least many of the ones I have seen. I can count the number of times on one hand I have seen him smile.

Thanks Abir, now I can count on 2 hands...however the second picture doesn't appear to be a smile. It appears to be a cross between being annoyed and serious.

Well I have to say that I saw Sheikh Mohammed with Princess Haya at the prize giving ceremony for the edurance race on tv and he looked so happy. I am not talking about him just receiving his prize but when he was sitting next to Haya and when they walking down to the dinner. He was helping her down the steps and he looked extremely happy. Even during the race he looked very proud of her.

I agree with you igniya I have seen both the opening and closing ceremonies on tv and they looked very happy together he was holding her hand when they arrived to help her walk down the stairs, also I have seen the whole endurance race, and he certainly looked very caring for Haya, he was checking on her and her horse all the time, and when she withdrawed from the race she was sitting in his car 'cheering' him if this is the right word.

That's great. Despite what some people say, I would hope that the two of them are happy.
