Saudi Prince’s $79m Superyacht Capsizes, Partially Sinks

DESPARDES — The 230ft Nourah of Riyadh, owned by Prince Turki bin Mohammed bin Fahd Al Saud, was being lifted out of the water for repairs when it capsized and partially sank.

Estimated to be worth $79 million and weighing 1415 ton, the superyatch was docked in Greece.

The luxury liner was at a repair yard in Perama, Athens, when it was turned at a 45-degree angle, becoming partially submerged in the water.
