Palma.—Radiant was one of the largest yachts to have been launched in 2009 and remains one of the biggest private vessels afloat in the world today.
Radiant was commissioned by the Russian media tycoon Boris Berezovsky, who wanted a rival to Pelorus, owned by his arch enemy Roman Abramovich. However, he subsequently sold her to Abdulla al-Futtaim, a billionaire car dealer from the United Arab Emirates, before she was completed.

As well as the standard features for a yacht of this size - helipad, gymnasium, cinema, spa - she has one of the highest security specifications ever conceived. And here comes the real James Bond feature - Berezovsky ordered a personal “escape launch” – a speedboat with turbo-charged twin diesel engines capable of exceeding 75 knots.

She is also equipped with an arsenal of sonic guns that fire low-frequency sound waves that can burst the eardrums of approaching assailants, and a military water cannon capable of sinking an approaching boat at more than 100 yards.

Bringing in splendor and elegance, this beauty was claimed to be the 2nd most beautiful yacht – ever by the world's leading designers.
What is more, it has been claimed that Radiant to be the most expensive and safest yacht in the history of yacht making.
She has a crew of 44, a permanent chopper pilot on board and a capacity to house 16 passengers.
