Fulk Al Salamah or translated to English “Ship of Peace” was assembled by “Mariotti” in Genoa, Italy. It is the world’s second-largest super yacht.
It is believed to belong to the Omani Royal Fleet. Notable amenities include a beauty salon, beach club, and conference facilities. It requires 130 crew members for optimal operation.
Information that we know
Information about the Fulk Al Salamah is not public. What is known is that the boat’s exterior was designed by Studio de Jorio.
The exterior is looking like a support vessel, but this is a real luxury super yacht inside
As you can see, 164 metre Fulk Al Salamah features a large helicopter deck, raked masts and a bathing platform.
However, the lack of exterior relaxation spaces adds to the impression that she is a support vessel, rather than a super yacht in her own right.
Nonetheless, she can comfortably lay claim to being the world’s largest super yacht support vessel.
Images show what could be an expansive beach club similar to that of a sistership built by Mariotti.
Meaning “Ship of Peace”, luxury yacht Fulk Al Salamah was first discovered in 2014 as project Saffron. It is believed to have inherited the name from a 136 metre support vessel, which has since been renamed Aldhaferah.
Although not the longest yacht, a record currently held by super yacht AZZAM, which measures 180 metres (591ft), “Ship of peace” is the biggest in terms of volume measured by a gross tonnage of 22,000 GT. For this reason, the superyacht eclipses AZZAM, which comes in at 13,136 GT.
Important note about Fulk Al Salamah
It must be noted that a yacht’s size is measured in gross tonnage rather than length. Gross tonnage (often abbreviated as GT) is a nonlinear measure of a ship’s overall internal volume.
Calculated by measuring a super yacht’s volume and applying a mathematical formula, it is then possible to produce an accurate reading which can be used for comparing its size to other yachts.
