Roman Abramovich’s Superyachts
This is Roman Abramovich’s private marina of past, present and future superyachts.
Roman Abramovich is the twelfth richest man in Russia with a net worth of $ 9.8 billion.
A fortune that started with a toy doll company, Abramovich and his now ex-wife used his success as a catalyst for world domination through everything from oil to consumer goods.
Most likely, his familiarity with the man comes into play is his acquisition of Chelsea Football Club in 2003. Since then, Abramovich has financed the purchase of numerous key players from the club, and several superyachts.
SUSSURRO – $ 111 MILLION
Now 20 years old, the 50 meter long yacht built by Feadship De Vries Shipyard and designed by Terence Disdale is one of the fastest ever made by Dutch yacht manufacturers. She accommodates 12 guests in five suites and can reach a whopping 46 knots.
It is rumored that Sussurro is now owned by his ex-wife through a divorce agreement, and is rarely used independently, as she is almost always docked in Antibes.
ECSTASEA – $ 117 MILLION
Ecstasea is one of the fastest large yachts in the world, with an impressive 43,000 horsepower at a length of 86 meters.
Built specifically for Abramovich, the ship has room for 14 guests and has 25 crew members. Space for two helicopters was also a design requirement, but the Russian did not own the superyacht for long, selling it to the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi in 2009. Currently, Pakistani billionaire Alshair Fiyaz is believed to be in possession. of the yacht.
MOON – $ 294 MILLION
This 115-meter monstrosity has two helipads and was built by Lloyd Werft at Stahlbau Nord Shipyards. The world’s second-largest expedition yacht, the LUNA, was sold to Abramovich’s friend and Azerbaijani billionaire Farkhad Akhmedov for € 240 million in 2014.
PELORUS – $ 294 MILLION
Of the same length and very similarly priced, the Pelorus was built in 2003 by Lurssen and was briefly owned by a Saudi businessman before being sold to Abramovich the following year.
Optimized for long-haul cruising, the Pelorus is arguably the most elegant of the mogul lineup, with this ship capable of traveling 6,000 nautical miles at 16 knots in a single trip. Pelorus is now owned by Hong Kong businessman Samuel Tak Lee.
ECLIPSE – $ 374 MILLION
There is no way Roman Abramovich could be separated from his flagship superyacht and the largest in the world by length at 163.5 meters. Known as the $ 1.5 billion superyacht, Eclipse’s original cost price was actually no more than $ 500 million.
Built in total secrecy by Blohm + Voss of Hamburg at Roman’s custom request, Eclipse has bulletproof windows, an advanced missile detection system, and a provision for escape via a submarine located at the lower end of the yacht. Bond villains’ gadgets aside, his other amenities are things like double pools and 20 jet skis.
The latest yacht is almost finished and cost £ 430 million to build.
At 460 feet, she has eight decks as well as a helicopter pad. The yacht is being built at the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Bremerhaven, Germany.
The shed she is being built in is larger than Buckingham Palace. Solaris will have 48 cabins, with capacity for 36 passengers and a crew of 60. She will have two advanced engines to be the most powerful yacht in the world.
