    The "Nourah of Riyad" recently came out of refit where she was significantly lengthened. Before, the Middle Eastern superyacht was around 65-meters LOA now she is 70-meters. Other modifications were made as well including a glassed-in enclosure on the sundeck. Under the waterline she was also modified with the addition of a bulbous bow.
