Katara superyacht owned by Qatar royal family arrives in Falmouth

Built by Lurssen in 2010, the superyacht, named ‘Katara’ is a 124-metre luxury motor vessel and it has just arrived in Falmouth, says Cornwall Live.

The yacht’s reportedly owned by the Qatar royal family – and said to be worth over £200 million.

Featuring a helipad and two life rafts on her upper decks, Katara was built for the previous Emir of Qatar, father of the current Emir.

She flies under the Qatari flag and her home port is Doha, according to superyachtfan.com.

The luxurious vessel is reportedly one of the world’s largest yachts, and can travel at a top speed of around 20 knots, but generally cruises at a comfortable 15.

Katara is set to leave Cornwall’s shores on August 6, according to the Falmouth Harbour Commissioners’ website.

Just some of the amenities aboard the Katara include a lift, helipad, beach club, swimming platform, a gym, spa, on-deck jacuzzi and a swimming pool.

According to Yachtcharterfleet.com, Katara offers accommodation for up to 34 guests, and is also capable of carrying up to 95 crew onboard.

Also currently docked in Falmouth is The World, a residential cruise ship which has been in the port since May. There are no passengers onboard.
