People on Greece’s island of Skiathos were amazed, for yet another year, by seeing the massive, ultra-luxurious ”Al Mirqab” yacht arrive on their island in the northern Sporades on Monday.

Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, the former prime minister and foreign minister of Qatar, is the owner of this vessel, and this was by no means the first time he had visited the idyllic Greek island of Skiathos.

Earlier this summer, he was spotted in Nafplio and Corfu as well, as part of his summertime tour of the Greek isles.

The famous Qatari man was seen going for a walk and dining at a local taverna on Skiathos.

Al Thani loves the Northern Sporades island and visits it almost every summer, as he enjoys his annual tours of the Ionian and Aegean Seas off Greece.

With its construction completed eleven years ago, the “Al Mirqab” is one of the largest motor yachts in the world. It has a series of lavish amenities, and up to 55 crew members can be on board when the yacht hosts guests.

While its owner is not using it, the beautiful, navy blue and white yacht is docked in its berth at a marina in Athens’ coastal suburb of Faliro.
