Launched by the prestigious German builder Lurssen last year, the massive and breath-taking 95-metre mega yacht KISMET is proudly owned by Shadid Khan, owner of NFL franchise the Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham Football Club. Previously, he owned the 68-metre superyacht KISMET, also built by Lurssen and launched in 2007.
Superbly penned by Espen Oeino, the five-deck 95m superyacht KISMET boasts stunning interiors created by Reymond Langton. Accommodation is provided in a lavish master cabin and five guest cabins. There is even such an unusual feature as a ‘sea cabin’, carefully placed on the lower deck on portside amidships, where motion will be at a minimum for guests who suffer from seasickness. Other remarkable features, besides all the usual luxury amenities of a Superyacht, includes a four-meter silver statue of a jaguar, its paw resting on a football helmet, that graces the bow on game days.
Shadid Khan, both July 18, 1950, is a Pakistan-American billionaire business. He left Pakistan as a teenager to attend the University of Illinois. He was featured on the front cover of Forbes magazine in 2012, associating him as the face of the American Dream, with a story that starts with him washing dishes and selling ice-cream, marrying his college Ann and resulting in him owning a $4.4 billion auto parts company with 13,000 employees.
