Hi Phil I know she was originally called Lana there is a story I have heard regarding this but I cannot print it.
The hull was actually built at the old Appledore Shipbuilders facility in Devon, which is now owned by Devonport Yachts. She was originally to be called Lana until purchased by said millionaire..... |
Hi Den, I have quoted £70 million that is the top of the range quotes being banded about. At the lower end it was £40 million. Whatever it is it is still a lot of cash.
Taken from the Western Morning News:
…the yacht, built at Devonport Management Limited’s yacht building arm Devonport Yachts, was built for a Kuwait-based millionaire businessman who is a senior figure in a company which specialises in the engineering and financial sectors...
…the yacht is called ‘Samar’, after the owner’s daughter.
At nearly 77 metres (253ft), it is the biggest yacht to be built in the UK since the 125 metre Royal Yacht Britannia more than 50 years ago.
Boasting five decks, accommodation for 12 passengers, 20 crew and four staff, a glass staircase running through the centre of the vessel, a fully-fitted gymnasium, a steam room and hot and cold pools on the upper deck, the boat is the epitome of luxury.
