At the time of this filming the yacht I had a lot of fun on belonged to my business associate Saudi Billionaire Adnan Khashoggi, and was known as Nabila.
During its days as Nabila, it was featured in the James Bond movie Never Say Never Again, in which it was seen as Flying Saucer (translated from Italian Disco Volante in the source novel, Thunderball), the villain’s superyacht mobile HQ. It was also the inspiration for a track, “Khashoggi’s Ship”, on the 1989 album by rock band Queen, The Miracle.
Donald Trump bought the yacht for $29 million. After a refit, Trump renamed it Trump Princess.
Trump sold it when he ran into financial problems in 1991 to Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal for $20 million.
The yacht’s latest name stems from the Prince’s investment company, Kingdom Holding Company, his lucky number (5), and his children’s initials (‘K’ and ‘R’).
