Don made some joke about it belonging to "another one of the kings". He sold many boats at that time to various kings around the world.
Willy Myers supervised the building of a 35 that was sold to the Shah of Iran. Willy went with the boat when it was deliverd to Iran and the Shah gave him a beautiful gold Rolex watch engraved on the back with the Shah's name. This all happened before the Ayatollah took over.
