Super Yacht Kismet in West India Dock -November 11th 2014

To prove that good things come in threes, we have another visitor in West India Dock that arrived yesterday afternoon. With due respect to the Sailing barge and the French Patrol boat , this ship is a bit of a celebrity causing considerable interest as it was initially moored near Tower Bridge for the last few days.  Part of the reason for the interest in the Super yacht Kismet is that it is suggested it is owned by the owner of Fulham FC, Pakistani-American billionaire businessman Shahid Khan.

Shahid Khan is also the owner of the NFL  team the Jacksonville Jaguars who played the Dallas Cowboys at an International Series game on Sunday.  It is reported in United States newspapers that he entertained the owner of the Dallas Cowboys and others at a party on the yacht over the weekend.

A major clue to the ownership is a silver Jaguar has been recently  attached to the bow, with one of its paws resting on a silver American football helmet. However it must be detachable because in West India Dock it is not there.

This ship is the second vessel named Kismet owned by Mr Khan , a previous 223ft yacht was sold for a rumoured £69 million last year.  The  new Kismet is  94 meter (308ft) and  built at German boatyard Lurssen.

The ship features exterior styling by Espen Øino and interior design by Reymond Langton Design featuring marble and rare woods, it will accommodate 12 guests in six staterooms, and has a crew of 20.

Unusually for the secretive super yacht world, a great deal seems to be known about Kismet and  if you fancy life aboard, the super yacht can be chartered for £940,000 or  1.6 million dollars a week.
