Ahmed Zaki Yamaani is the owner of superyacht Al Diriyah.
AL DIRIYAH was built for American shipping magnate Daniel K. Ludwig in 1960 in Japan under the name Danginn. After she was sold to Charles Revson of the Revlon cosmetics empire, who renamed her Ultima II she was reportedly sold to a European banker and named Serendipity. The yacht was then bought by Saudi billionaire Nasser Al-Rashid who named her Massarrah. It was Sheik Ahmed Yamani who bought and named her AL DIRIYAH.
