SOLARIS: ROMAN ABRAMOVICH’S NEW 500 MILLION MEGAYACHT , BIGGER THAN THE BUCKINGHAM PALACE
A new megayacht, named Solaris, by Russian magnate Roman Abramovich takes shape at the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Bremerhaven (Germany).
This new megayacht of 140 meters in length has the capacity to host up to 36 guests in its 48 cabins, with a crew of 60 people.
The Chelsea FC president would have invested more than 500 million euros in the construction, similar in size to Buckingham Palace.
The Solaris yacht will have a top speed of 18 knots and will be powered by a generation of Azipods electric motors. Her propellers can rotate 360 degrees, providing maximum maneuverability in ports.
Abramovich, with business over 11,000 million euros, is the owner of the 162-meter megayacht Eclipse, which currently ranks third among the largest models in the world, offering on its nine floors: spa, swimming pool, gym, two helipads and 24 cabins for guests. In its cellars, there is also a small submarine with capacity for three people that is available.
Abramovich has also been the owner of three megayachts: Le Grand Bleu, Luna and the Pelorus. The first two are expedition, and their hulls with a greater resistance can navigate in extreme climates such as the polar areas.
