The sizeable ship was built by the Royal Denship and delivered in 2003, bought by Californian investor Ronald Tutor.
The yacht’s exterior design and engineering are the work of Espen Oeino, the naval architect behind man of the looks of many world’s biggest boats, while Francesco Zuretti put together the interior.
Tutor named it Pegasus V, having previously owned other yacht with the name Pegasus.
In 2015, the businessman sold it on to the Saudi prince for £44million, who renamed the ship Pegasus VIII.
The 35-year-old, who serves as Saudi Arabia’s deputy prime minister, sent the cruiser off to the Netherlands for an intensive refit, according to Super Yacht Fan.
It is powered by diesel-electric engines, and with a 435,700 litre fuel tanks, has a maximum range of 7,5000 nautical miles at 12 knots.
It is not known how long the yacht will stay anchored in Cornwall.
