Shefler sold his superyacht Serene to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS). (Sales price: EUR 350 million). It now houses Leonardo Da Vinci’s masterpiece Salvator Mundi.


Who is Yuri SheflerYuri Shefler?


He is shareholder and founder of the SPI Group. He was born in September 1967. He is married to Tatiana Kovylina, they have 3 children.



SPI Group

SPI Group is a leading spirits company. And one of the most important drinks groups in the world.



After leaving the Russian army in September 1987, Shefler studied at the Russian Academy of Economy. Before starting a business career which has included running one of Moscow`s leading shopping malls and heading Vnukovo Airlines.



Shefler had a vision of building an integrated spirits business. Controlling everything from production to distribution and sales. Through a series of deals he added distilleries. And  a retail network in Russia and the Baltic states. And he developed an international distribution arm.



The superyacht Serene was built for Yuri Shefler (his name is sometimes spelled as Yuri Schefler).




Stolichnaya Vodka

In 1997 he bought a company that became the heart of what has grown into SPI today. One of the famous brands of SPI is the Vodka Stolichnaya.



SPI now operated in over 160 markets and distributes around 400 brands.




Real Estate Development

SPI is also active in real estate development, they developed the Moscow International Business Centre - or Moscow City, a US$ 12 billion project.



One of their current projects is Z-Towers, a residential complex in Riga, Latvia.





Private Jet

Yes he owns 2 Gulfstream G650s. Schefler owned a Bombardier Global Express XRS jet. The jet has registration LX-GXX. Were are not sure what the sign GXX relates to.



But one of his previous jets a Bombardier BD-700 with the same registration tag, was registered to SPI Aero Sarl.



And it is not a coincidence that the interior photo of the private jet shows a bottle of Shefler’s Solichnaya vodka brand. ;-) The price of a XRS jet starts at US$ 55 million.



He also owns a Gulfstream G650, with registration M-SHEF. The G650 was delivered in 2016.



And we found another G650 with registration LX-LXX. This jet was built in 2017.




Yuri Shefler Net Worth

His net worth is estimated at US$ 1.8 billion.



Serena




















Yuri Shefler Residence

He lives with his wife Tatiana Kovylina in a large mansion in the town of Weybridge, near London. And he also owns a holiday house in St. Jean Cap Ferrat on the Cote D’Azur.



This house is named Serena (which was actually the project name of the yacht Serene). We found some mortgage documents which name the yacht Serena instead of Serene.



And according to some official documents he lives in Switzerland.



Charter Holidays

Since the Shefler family sold Serene, they charter yachts now. In the summer of 2019 they chartered the brand new Lurssen yacht TIS for 2 weeks.

In August 2015 SuperYachtFan was informed that Mr. Yuri Shefler had sold Serene. For an amount of EUR 350 million to an Arab billionaire.



And - not really to our surprise - Serene arrived in Jeddah early September 2015. Later we were told that King Salman of Saudi Arabia or one of his sons is the new owner of Serene.




Prince Mohammad bin Salman

We also found some info claiming that Salman’s son Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman owns the Serene yacht now. We were told that Prince Mohammad als owns the yacht Pegasus VIII.



And to our surprise, in October 2016 both Serene and Pegasus were in Vlissingen The Netherlands at a refit yard.




Serene yacht










Ran Aground

In August 2017 Serene run aground in the Red Sea near Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. The yacht was reportedly bow-up on the rocks. She sustained structural damage to the bulb, bow and hull.



The cause was thought to be a navigational track error and propulsion failure.
