A few days  ago Al Jawhara Al Ibrahim came back to Marbella, both on land and at sea. She lives in the Saudi royal palace in Marbella and uses the Saudi royal family’s ship “Lady Haya” in Puerto Banus. The ship is registered in the Cayman Islands but is normally moored in Puerto Banus in Marbella. “Lady Haya” was set afloat in 1981 and is 65 meters long, takes 16 guests and has a crew of 21. The interior leaves nothing to chance since it was created by the renowned designer Terence Disdale.

The neighboring vessel is the slightly smaller but equally luxurious “Shaf” which is the Saudi prince Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud’s floating palace. “Shaf” was also set afloat in 1981 and is 53 meters long, takes 14 guests with a crew of 12.

Al Jawhara Al Ibrahim was married to King Fahd, who died in August 2005. She was the king’s fourth wife and his favorite wife. They had a son, Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd who is the youngest of the king’s sons. She is highly respected and considered to have great influence in the Saudi royal family.

“Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud” is “King Ibn Saud” 25th son and half-brother of the current king. He is the Crown Prince and Deputy Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia and the country’s defense minister. He is part of the core of the Saudi royal family, and thus belongs to the management in Saudi Arabia.
