Ceremonial sword from India

Ceremonial sword

Whether it's displaying fine art or a garage full of the best water toys, many superyachts are also floating homes to their owner's personally curated collections. Few, however, have collections quite like the Al Thani family.

The ruling house of Qatar, this sprawling family counts among its members Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani owner of Al Mirqab, Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani owner of Katara and Sheikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani owner of Stargate.

As this list of some of the largest superyachts in the world may suggest, the Al Thani family is not new to a little curation and over the generations has amassed an unrivalled collection of priceless art and objects of Indian descent.
