The $1.5 Billion Dollar Yacht

The yacht Eclipse is known as ‘the USD 1.5 billion yacht’, although her real cost price was considerably less. Her original contract price was around EUR 400 million, or USD 500 million. Superyacht Eclipse was the largest yacht in the world, but this title is now reserved for superyacht Azzam. The yacht Eclipse is owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, one of the richest people in the world.

Anti Paparazzi systems?

Eclipse is said to have an anti paparazzi system, a laser which is used to detect the electronic light sensors that digital cameras use. The camera is then targeted with a beam of bright light that overexposes the photo, which becomes useless.

A crew of 70

Eclipse has two swimming pools and two helicopter pads, she has a crew of 70. Eclipse was delivered by Blohm and Voss in 2010. She was built in total secrecy. Early 2013 Eclipse arrived in New York and docked in Manhattan. In June 2014 Eclipse was laying for anchor near Antibes, France for a few days.

A refit in 2015

Early 2015 Eclipse was seen in a drydock at the Blohm+Voss yard in Hamburg for a refit.In June 2015 she visited Bergen in Norway. And in November 2015 she was back at Blohm & Voss for some maintenance. See some photos by Tom Gulbrandsen here. Source of some of the photo’s on this page: .

Roman Abramovich

$ 8 billion net worth

Roman Abramovich is the 12th richest Russian with an estimated net worth of USD 7.6 billion (February 2016). In 1988 he and his wife set up a company making dolls, which was an immediate success. Within a few years he also started investing in other businesses. From 1992 to 1995, Abramovich founded five companies that conducted resale, produced consumer goods, and acted as intermediaries, specializing in the trading of oil and oil products. Abramovich set up and liquidated at least 20 companies during the early 1990s, in sectors as diverse as tire re treading and bodyguard recruitment.


In 1995, Abramovich and Boris Berezovsky, an associate of President Boris Yeltsin, acquired the controlling interest in the large oil company Sibneft. Each partner paid USD 100 million for half of the company and rapidly turned it into billions. Abramovich sold his stake in Russian Aluminum to billionaire Oleg Deripaska and his stake in Sibneft to Gazprom for USD 13 billion in 2005.

Chelsea Footbal Team

Abramovich owns the U.K.'s Chelsea soccer team, which he acquired in 2003. He spent millions acquiring players. Since the takeover, the club have won 13 major trophies, making Chelsea the most successful English trophy winning team in the decade.

Abramovich owns a Boeing 767 private jet (registered as P4-MES), and he seems to have ordered the world’s largest jet: an Airbus A380. Roman Abramovich also owns the gas turbine powered yacht Sussurro and he owned the expedition yacht Luna. He also owned the yacht Le Grand Blue, but he gave her to his friend Eugene Shvidler in 2006. Early 2014 Abramovich sold a London mansion for US$ 40 million to Tetra-Pack heir Hans Rausing. In 2014 Abramovich sold Luna to Azerbaijani billionaire Farkhad Akhmedov. Akhmedov acquired his wealth through natural gas producer Northgas, which he sold in 2012.
