It comes after the superyacht, which was previously known as Project Lightning, first hit the water in July 2019, promptly taking its place among the largest 25 superyachts in the world.

Scheherazade's Espen Øino-designed exterior features a four-deck aluminium superstructure, two large helipads – one at the bow and one on the upper deck – plus a prominent beach club aft.

With the owner known to be a Middle-Eastern billionaire, this yacht is designed with warmer climates in mind and has relatively little exterior space for a yacht of this size.

There is limited covered deck space at the aft end of the main and upper decks, but it is well enclosed by glass sides for cooling. Even the sundeck is completely shaded by a hardtop, which all helps to give the yacht a huge 10,167 GT internal volume.
