SuperYachts and SuperYacht Owners

SuperYacht Pelorus

The yacht Pelorus (from the Greek word pelorios, meaning vast) is one of the world's largest yachts. She has a length of 377 feet 3 inches (115 metres). The yacht Pelorus was built at the Lürssen yard in Bremen, Germany to the design of Tim Heywood and was launched in 2003. It was briefly owned by a Saudi businessman who sold it to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich the following year. Abramovich had it refitted to his own requirements by Blohm & Voss. This included the addition of a second helicopter pad forward, four new zero-speed stabilizers and modifications to the exhaust, mast and stern. Abramovich also owned Ecstasea, and gave away Le Grand Bleu to friend Eugene Shvidler. In 2011 he sold Pelorus to David Geffen, for EUR 150 million or US$ 200 million. Pelorus is powered by two 5,500-hp Wärtsilä 12v 26 engines, which will give her a maximum speed of 19 knots, but often cruises between 12 to 14 knots. The yacht has a number of tenders on board and a garage full of 'toys', including jet skis and wave runners. A full time crew of up to 46 people lives aboard all year long. Pelorus will often be found cruising around the Western Mediterranean during the summers and commonly cruises down through the Suez Canal for the winters. Mr. Geffen sold Pelorus to Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the yacht is now based in Abu Dhabi. Geffen still owns his yacht Rising Sun, which was built for Larry Ellison
