  1. Donald Trump's Yacht: The "Trump Princess"

    With Donald Trump's presidential campaign attempting to buy the big seat in the big house, we decided to look back at one of his previous real estate holdings; his floating home, the "Trump Princess." Built in 1980 by Benetti Shipyards in Viareggio, Italy at a cost of $100 million (equivalent to over $250 million in today's dollars), this 85.65 meter yacht was originally built for Saudi billionaire Adnan Khashoggi and named "Nabila", after his daughter. Designed by the legendary Jon Bannenberg, Nabila was featured in the James Bond movie Never Say Never Again.
  2. In 1988, Nabila was sold to the Sultan of Brunei, who in-turn sold it to Donald Trump for $29 million. In true Trump fashion, the "H" was replaced with a "T" on the helicopter landing pad. In 1991, Trump ran into some financial problems and sold the yacht for $20 million to Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.
  3. The yacht's current name, Kingdom 5KR is a derivative of the Prince's investment company, Kingdom Holding Company, his lucky number '5' and his children's initials 'K' and 'R'. The yacht is 281 feet in length, has a beam of 43.5 ft, a draft of 15.5 ft. and fuel capacity of 136,000 gallons, or a campaign busting half-million dollars to fill-her-up! 5KR has a top speed of 20 knots and cruising speed of 17.5 knots.
  4. When the Trump Princess was originally built for the world's wealthiest arm's dealer, it had five deck levels, a disco, a cinema room with seating for 12 and 11 guest suites. A helipad was located on the on top of the yacht (where a sundeck is normally located) and the exhaust stacks are slanted to port & starboard to allow clearance the helicopter's rotor blades. The yacht also had a pool in front of the helipad. Reportedly, there were two Riva tenders onboard and it accommodated 48 crew members.
  5. For more information on the Trump Princess, just ask her... ;)
