Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz of the Saudi royal family has a new toy: the 65-meter (213-foot) Nourah of Riyadh, the largest motoryacht built to date in Turkey.

Delivered last Friday, Nourah of Riyadh was built at Yachtley, a shipyard located in the Kocaeli Free Zone, which runs along both the Black Sea and Sea of Marmara.

Nourah of Riyadh reportedly has six guest staterooms, accommodations for 21 crew, a private cinema, two elevators, and of course a helipad. The interior design is by Donald Starkey.

Turkish Foreign Trade Minister Kürşat Tüzmen was present at the handover ceremony on Friday and says his country intends to remain at the forefront of yacht construction.

“This is a clear sign that we are growing fast in shipbuilding,” he told news agencies. “Our experts have already started preparations to build a 75-meter yacht here in Kocaeli.

Reportedly, the yacht has been built for a cost of 50 million euros ($65 million).
