Russian President Vladimir Putin’s $ 125 million yacht collection offers a glimpse into his luxurious life.
Vladimir Putin served as President of Russia for eight years from 1999 to 2008 before being re-elected in 2012 and has been the Commander-in-Chief ever since.
He alleges that he alone makes $ 100,000 annually as president. But he is believed to have a net worth of $ 40 billion,…. and it is not surprising that he is one of the richest politicians in the world.
Putin owns many properties and castles in Russia and travels in style in his limousines, as well as owning a fleet of impressive superyachts.
This is Vladimir Putin’s $ 125 million yacht collection.

The first yacht on the list is The Graceful, which is as elegant as the name implies. Sprayed in the rich hue of white, it has a beam of 72 meters and a volume of 2,685 tons. She was built by Blohm and Voss in 2014 and designed by H2 Yacht Design. The superyacht has six guest cabins, which can accommodate 12 people and seven crew members.
The largest room is the Master Suite, followed by two VIP cabins and three guest cabins. The yacht has a 50 x 10 foot pool, which can be turned into a dance floor at the touch of a button. The boat’s open view offers a 360-degree view of the blue lagoons. The yacht costs a staggering $ 100 million and, if that’s not enough, it requires $ 5 to $ 10 million in annual maintenance costs.
President Putin hosted his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko on his yacht on Saturday, after Belarus forced the landing of a Ryanair jetliner and arrested a journalist last week.
