Although President Trump no longer owns any superyachts, he has done so in the past. In fact, he has commandeered a somewhat interesting portfolio over the years.

This was once Donald Trump’s superyacht- Trump Princess

Benetti shipyards originally delivered the then-named Nabila to Saudi billionaire Adnan Khashoggi back 1980. In 1983, the superyacht appeared in the James Bond movie, Never Say Never Again.

The 86 meter yacht was later sold on to Trump for a reported $29 million in 1987. Nabila was promptly named the Trump Princess and was refitted by Holland-based, Amels. He even changed the “H” on the helipad to a “T”. If that’s not bold, we don’t know what is!

The Trump Princess was then sold on to a Saudi Prince. Prince Alwaleed bin Talal still owns the 85.7 metre, now-named Kingdom 5KR. It was rumoured at the time that the boat was being repossessed due to Trump’s business failures, but Trump called these claims “completely false”.

Two years later, Spanish design company Oliver Design were commissioned to build “the most beautiful yacht the world has ever seen” by the business mogul.

It’s thought plans were then cancelled due to Trump’s impending bankruptcy… And now, here we are, in 2017, and this flashy businessman-come superyacht fan is the President of the USA! What a world we live in, hey?
