Give us a background about yourself and your business?

Fahad al Sufayeh: I’m a Kuwaiti businessmen and son of one the first diplomats and politicians in Kuwait with extended ties to the former Amir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al Salam Al Sabah, and the recent Crown Prince, Sheikh Meshaal Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah. I am also the brother-in-law of Governor Sheikh Faisal Al Sabah, a member of the Kuwait royal family.

Omid Rahravani: I’m an American from Los Angeles and started my career decades ago as a financial advisor at the prestigious Wall Street brokerage firm Morgan Stanley, before deciding to become an entrepreneur. This is one of the main reasons I moved to Kuwait and became business partners with my childhood friend Fahad. We both love big challenges, creative ideas and brokering massive mega deals like this one for the Royal Falcon One.

What makes this the Royal Falcon One unique?
Fahad: The lavish Royal Falcon One is a brand-new 41.14 metre (134ft 98in) power catamaran developed by the Singapore-based Royal Falcon Fleet. It has a beam of 12.5 metres and a draft of 1.7 metres and an all-aluminium superstructure.

The superyacht has a futuristic design that comes to life from the drawing boards of the iconic Porsche Design Studio which is affiliated with the legendary automaker. This masterpiece took 10 years to complete and was shrouded in secrecy before being unveiled in 2019, built by Sweden-based Kockums shipyard.

Ten guests can comfortably be accommodated across its four guest rooms and separately another ten crew members. There is a large master suite with private balcony and many luxury amenities like Jacuzzi, lounge, bar and a tender garage.

The modern, futuristic interior has shades of blue and white combined with wooden and metallic surfaces.

This yacht features twin 4,600 horsepower diesel engines and twin Rolls-Royce KaMeWa waterjets, delivering a cruising speed of around 15 knots and can go up to 35 knots whilst designed for low fuel consumption, with a range of 3,200km.

Why did you choose to represent and introduce the Royal Falcon One superyacht here in the region?
Omid: The Porsche designed Royal Falcon One is truly unique compared to anything else out there in this ultra-competitive market. Before its construction began, it is said that Royal Falcon Fleet asked for a yacht that “no one had ever built”, making it that much more special. This makes it really exciting for us to introduce in the Middle East as the region is already famous for its many luxurious superyachts.

Myself and Fahad are both avid yacht enthusiasts and chartering luxury yachts are one of our favourite hobbies, especially during our summer visits to the French Rivera, as we love to experience the calmness of the sea and ocean breeze, which has a specific joy and pleasure. The Royal Falcon One instantly caught our attention because it resembles an extraordinary “spaceship on the water”, as many people have described it.

Fahad: The UAE in particular is one of our favourite countries that we regularly visit, especially for the iconic Dubai and Abu Dhabi international boat shows that host some of the world’s most expensive mega yachts, owned by billionaires and royal families. Many of these yachts are docked throughout the year in the UAE, so this exclusive and unique Porsche Designed Royal Falcon One will be right at home in the UAE.

What are some of the top yachts you are referring to in the UAE?
Omid: There are many incredible yachts docked in the UAE, but four of the world’s most famous and luxurious are owned by the royal family are;

Azzam: Positioned as number one and owned by Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of UAE. It is thought to have a cost $600m to build.

Do you believe that there is still a big demand for superyachts given the recent pandemic?
Fahad: I believe there is always a big demand among yacht enthusiasts and the privileged, but that has been amplified even more so given the current world situation with the pandemic. Many have realised that being on their own yacht isolated with loved ones far away in the ocean is a great idea and the safest option to shield themselves.

In fact, many of our friends did exactly that during the current crisis, and reports like the Luxury Yacht Market indicate there was a big surge and demand for yachts from first-time buyers and luxury private travel. The Royal Falcon One is a truly unique vessel be seen on whether holidaying or cocooning oneself away from others, so we expect it to sell fast.

Many people around the world began to appreciate the essence of their time and realised that it is the most valuable commodity. This pandemic has caused people to re-prioritise and take more chances, have adventures and especially to experience their dreams and freedoms which they had taken for granted. This translates well for the yacht enthusiasts to buy yachts to reward themselves and to be prepared to protect their loved ones from the unexpected. This trend will likely continue to only grow bigger around the world.
