Will Mariotti Build a 180m Superyacht?: An Italian shipping newspaper, has indicated that the shipyard T. Mariotti based in Genoa, Italy, has signed a contract to build a 180m superyacht for Saudi Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal bin AbdulAziz al Saud.
Mariotti is currently completing the 150m-plus superyacht project Saffron for another Middle Eastern client. The hull for the 180m project, as in the case of Saffron, will be constructed by another shipyard, reportedly the Cimolai Group or the Visentini Shipyard.
Few other details are known about the project, other than she will reportedly be ready for delivery in 2020 and contracted at € 500 million. The MediTelegraph newspaper also reported that Fincantieri was also in the face for the contract.
The Saudi Prince currently owns the 86m Benetti superyacht Kingdom 5KR. Rumors that he intended to order a new superyacht have circulated for more than 10 years. In 2005, French channel M6 air a show called Zone Interdite with the Prince, which included a segment with a meeting with Andrew Winch and Jonathan Becket of Burgess and a design of a 171m superyacht project.
