First unveiled in 2014, the 150m+ superyacht under construction at the Mariotti shipyard in Genoa that has been known as project Saffron up till now, is named Fulk Al Salamah. Captured in Genoa last week, these new images show the vessel in a near completed state suggesting that she could possibly be getting ready to join what we believe is her mothership, the 155 metre Lürssen superyacht Al Said based in Oman.
A 136 metre support vessel named Fulk Al Salamah currently forms part of the Omani Royal fleet, but this latest discovery leads us to believe that this smaller vessel is to be renamed and replaced by the newer Mariotti by the same name. The new Fulk Al Salamah shares a number of similar exterior design cues with the 155m Al Said such as her commercial grade finish, aft-swept masts, and large awnings on the two forward upper decks (yet to be covered with canvas on Fulk Al Salamah).
