Armed yacht of Emirate billionaire drops anchor in Dubrovnik

By  Aug 30, 2018

You might be forgiven for thinking that another cruise ship had dropped anchor in front of Dubrovnik this morning, no this massive yacht is the seventh most expensive private yacht ever built at a staggering $286 million.

Radiant is the plaything of one of the richest men in the world Abdulla Al Futtaim an Emirati billionaire, owner of Al-Futtaim Group. He earned his wealth through operations in the automotive field, as well as retail and real estate. In May 2017, his net worth was estimated at $4.1 billion.

And when he is sailing in the Adriatic he does so in considerable style. Radiant is an impressive 110 metres in length and features swimming pools, helicopter, cinema, numerous Jacuzzis and a gym.

It is also “armed” to keep away prying eyes. It has on board sonic guns that, according to BusinessInsider.com, would burst the eardrums of attackers as well as water cannons that would sink an approaching ship from 100 metres.
