About Al Riyadh

Built at the Royal Van Lent yard, which had to be especially expanded for the longest Feadship at that time - Al Riyadh kept this record for 24 years until the launch of the 65.00m long Wedge Too in 2002 - she was intended at a palatial reception yacht. As well as housing a crew of 26, she offered accommodation for 24 guests, including extra royal suites in their own enclosed area for visiting VIPs.
