“Al Mirqab” ...

“Al Mirqab,” one of the largest motor yachts ever built, which was sailing in the waters of Mykonos a few days ago, has now anchored in the waters of Skiathos.

Boys toys to the ready ...
The owner of “Al Mirqab,” the Sheikh and Qatar’s former Prime Minister, Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, anchored at Maratha beach, close to famous Koukounaries beach in Skiathos.

Due to the yacht’s enormous size, port authorities of the island informed the Greek captain of the yacht to avoid docking at the island’s port and instead dock off the coast between the two beaches. Members of the royal family reach the shores with speedboats.

The Sheikh visited Skiathos along with his family to enjoy the sea and the sun and are expected to stay until Friday.


Later Update:

The sheikh was hungry, and sent out for a take-away ...

 Not only did the Sheikh order a take away, but the team from our favourite street food store to cook it for him, as well.

Mr Kóziakas, was invited to cook for the sheikh, aboard “Al Mirqab” with his son ...

  1. Bet the Sheikh went for a slap up meal at the captain's :-)

    1. Class establishment, and the best Goats milk on the island. I see your favourite establishment, was panned on FB this morning ...

  2. Yes I saw it we went to a few different places to eat this year some friends had tough meat it's just the same at home you can be unlucky.

    1. OK ask yourself a question: When did you ever see a cow, or a fat sheep in Greece ?
      The best butcher has retired, he told me Wid Boar and Pig is good, the rest comes from Bulgaria. He imported his Red meat from Poland :))
