The 95 metre superyacht Indian Empress
Indian Empress is a 95 metre Oceanco, built in 2000 to a design of The A Group. She was launched as Al Mirqab, one of the yachts owned by the Qatar royal family. In her days as Al Mirqab, she remained a highly private yacht. These days, Indian Empress is in the hands of an Indian owner, who made the yacht available for charter. She is regularly seen at Formula 1 events, which is no surprise, since her owner owns the Sahara Force India Formula One Team. The yacht is, powered by triple engines, each delivers a stunning 10.000 hp, which provide a cruising speed of 17 knots.
