m/y ISSHAM AL BAHER, quite a historical yacht, it was the original ATLANTIS built for Stavros Niarchos at Hellenic Shipyards in 1973 and designed by Cesar Pinnau, the designer of the Christina O.
It is alleged that the yacht was purchased from Stavros Niarchos by John Latsis and given as a gift to Crown Prince Fahd of Saudi Arabia. Niarchos had an almost exact copy of the yacht built at Hellenic Shipyards in 1981 which became ATLANTIS II. A third yacht was commissioned but Niarchos died before it was completed and the hull still remains in Greece. ATLANTIS II is usually at Port Hercule in Monaco and is still used by the Niarchos family.
