Luxury £940,000-a-week superyacht arrives in London

The 95m superyacht Kismet, believed to belong to one of world’s richest men, has settled into its new home of the River Thames in London, after arriving last week.

Launched in September this year, it is widely reported that Kismet is owned by Pakistani-American billionaire Shahid Khan, the owner of Fulham FC and 349th wealthiest person in the world.

Kismet has been in the world famous River Thames for a few days now, catching the eye of many of London’s citizens, having previously cruised near iconic landmarks such as Tower Bridge.

Kismet was built by German shipyard Lurssen, who also built Kismet’s sister-vessel, a 223ft yacht which was formerly owned by Mr Khan, also called Kismet and rechristened Global after it was sold for a rumoured £69 million last year.

The new Kismet is available for charter through leading USA-based yacht brokers Moran Yacht & Ship, believed to be for a sum of £940,000-a-week (€1.2million).

Reported to have a net worth of around £2.9billion ($4.6billion), Mr Khan also owns the NFL team the Jacksonville Jaguar and he is believed to have brought Kismet to London as the Jaguars are set to play the Dallas Cowboys at Wembley in an International Series game this week.

Kismet's interior layout sleeps up to 12 guests in six staterooms, including a master suite; she is also capable of carrying up to 28 crew on board. The yacht's interior has been designed by Reymond Langton Design and her exterior styling is by Espen Oeino.
