Over a week after the 70-metre motor yacht Nourah of Riyad capsized near Athens during a haul-out procedure for routine maintenance, local services this week managed to refloat and stabilise the vessel in Perama where the damage will now be assessed.

The cause of the incident that took place on 8 March 2020 is still unclear but it is known that no marine pollution was reported as a result, neither were any personal injuries. Nourah of Riyad has now been moved to an adjacent dock where investigational and repair work will get underway. 

The Middle Eastern-owned superyacht Nourah of Riyad was completed in 2008 by the Yachtley shipyard in Turkey with interior and exterior design by designer Donald Starkey. In 2012 the vessel was extended by five metres to her current length of 70 metres which included a new beach club area at her stern while her sundeck was also modified with a new forward-facing observation lounge.
