Al Salamah is a motor yacht which was the property of the late Saudi Arabian crown prince, Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz. At the time of its construction, it was the third largest motor yacht in the world. In 2009 it was 5th largest in the world but has moved to number 7 in 2011.
Al Salamah was ordered to be built, in 1998, by the German shipbuilding company HDW, in Kiel, Germany, but was finished at the Lürssen ship-yard in Bremen. The project carried the name Mipos " Mission possible" despite of the vessel delivery time requests. (Hull number: 13590). The yacht was also the second owned by a member of the Royal Family; their first yacht was the Prince Abdulaziz, which had been built in 1984.
Al Salamah is a private vessel, and is not available for public hire. It is estimated to be worth upwards of $200 million USD. Among the ship's amenities are a cinema, a library, a business center, a fully equipped onboard hospital, two full-time beauticians, a gymnasium, and a spa.
