Sokar (originally named Jonikal) is a luxury yacht formerly owned by Egyptian businessman Mohamed Al-Fayed, the former owner of Harrods department store in Knightsbridge. The vessel was sold in 2014 after being on the market for many years. She is named after the Egyptian mythology falcon god Sokar. The yacht was designed by naval architect Vincenzo Ruggiero in the late 1980s and built by Codecasa in Italy and launched in 1990. It has a length of 208 feet 3 inches (63.47 m) making it the 89th largest yacht in the world in 2007. It is equipped with two 3,760 horsepower (2,800 kW) engines. The yacht has a beam of 10.4 metres (34 ft) and a draft of 3.9 metres (13 ft).

Al-Fayed has often kept the yacht moored in the harbour of Monaco since the 1990s but it is registered in Bermuda and flies the Flag of Bermuda. In August 1997 Mohamed's son Dodi Fayed and Diana, Princess of Wales were extensively photographed on the yacht shortly before their deaths in Paris.

Yachting Partners International have attempted to buy the yacht on numerous occasions, offering $32 million and $30 million for the yacht in 2005. In 2001 Al-Fayed had also attempted to sell the yacht for a reported $40 million. After years on the market and numerous price reductions, she was finally sold in 2014 to an unknown buyer for under $13 million.
