Al Mansur

Al Mansur

The 120-metre/7,539 tonne Yacht was designed for the government of The Republic of Iraq (State Enterprise for Water Transportation) as an ocean-going presidential Luxury Yacht. The Yacht was built by the former Wärtsila Shipyard (today STX Finland OY) in Finland and was delivered in 1983. Special features included a min-submarine rescue capsule. She was bombed by the US Air Force in March 2003 during the invasion of Iraq, but proved difficult to sink and had to be scrapped two years later in Basra.
