Superyacht Eclipse

Luxury yacht Eclipse is known as the USD 1.5 billion yacht, although her real cost price was probably 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 super yacht Azzam. The yacht Eclipse is owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, one of the richest people in the world. 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. Eclipse has two swimming pools and two helicopter pads, she has a crew of 60. 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.  Source of some of the photo’s on this page: Marinetraffic.com


Roman Abramovich

Roman Abramovich is the 13th richest Russian with an estimated net worth of USD 10,2 billion. 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 retreading 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. 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 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 sold a US$ 40 million mansion to Tetra-Pack heir Hans Rausing. SuperYachtFan became aware of some rumors that Luna has been sold in June 2014 by Abramovich to an Azerbaijani. We heard the name Ibrahim Ibrahimov. Do you know more? please do send us a message. Update: We were informed that Azerbaijani billionaire Farkhad Akhmedov purchased Luna from Abramovich. Akhmedov acquired his wealth through natural gas producer Northgas, which he sold in 2012.
