Indian Empress - Oceanco - 95,0 meter - 2000

Still named Al Mirqab when pictures were taken.
She is rumoured to be built for the emir of Qatar and is now said to be owned by Indian business man Vijay Mallya.
On Wikipedia you will find the following information:

Indian Empress is one of the largest private yachts in the world at 311 feet 8 inches (95 metres) in length and is owned by Indian business baron Vijay Mallya. Launched in 2000 as Al Mirqab, she was finished at the Oceanco yard in Holland to the design of the A Group after having had her hull assembled in Durban, South Africa. The yacht was previously owned by a Qatari Royal Family member.
Indian Empress is powered by three 10,000-hp MTU 20-cylinder engines, and has three propellers enabling her to reach speeds of up to 24 knots. Her cruising grounds include the Mediterranean sea and the Indian Ocean.
Mallya also owns Indian Princess, a 181 foot (55 meter) motor yacht built by Sterling Yacht & Shipbuilders in Japan in 1986.

  1. CRN is a number system in Canada in which the number is issued by each province/territory of Canada to the design of pressure-containing equipment. This numbering system recognizes that design has been approved and registered for use under that province/territory. All boilers, pressure vessels, piping, tracing, hoses, and industrial instrumentation fall under this requirement. Know more about CRN registration and
