All You Need to Know About Vladimir Putin and his Yacht Graceful

Yacht Name: Graceful - Yacht Length: 82 m (269 ft) - Guests: 12 in 6 cabins - Crew: 14 in 7 cabins - IMO: 1011551 - Displacement: 2,685t - Blohm Voss - 2014 - Yacht Value: US$ 100 million -

Owners Name: Vladimir Putin - Putin Net Worth: US$ 10 billion + - Russian President - Owners Country: Russia - The yacht Graceful has one of the largest indoor pools ever installed on a yacht.

Yacht Graceful

The motor yacht Graceful was originally constructed at the Russian Sevmash shipyard near Arkhangelsk.


Sevmash is the largest ship-building complex in Russia, known for building nuclear submarines for the Russian Navy.

When the completed hull was towed to Germany for finishing in 2010, an accident occurred.

Ran Ashore and Damaged

During a heavy storm she tore away from the tug and ran ashore in Vesterålen, Northern Norway. The hull was damaged and needed repairs.

The yacht was finished at Blohm and Voss in Germany and delivered to her Russian owner in 2014.

Yacht Graceful Interior

She is designed by H2 Yacht Design. Special features included a 15 meters long indoor pool, which can be converted in to a dance floor.

Sister ship of Baltika

She is a sister ship of the yacht Baltika, now named Victoria. Baltika was also constructed by Sevmash (project name: Agat) and was transported to Italy early 2014 to be completed. All photo’s on this page by Ship-Dreams.

Vladimir Putin

SuperYachtFan became aware of some rumors that the yacht Graceful was built for Russian President Vladimir Putin. SuperYachtFan is not sure if these rumors are true, there is only circumstantial evidence to support these rumors.

Vladimir PutinEvidence to Support that Putin owns the Yacht

1) The yacht was constructed at the Sevmash Shipyard, which normally only works for the Russian Navy (a billionaire who wants to have a new toy, will not have access to a site where the navy is building nuclear submarines),

Sochi Residence

2) after her delivery Graceful spent a lot of time at Sochi in Russia. She left Sochi in December 2014. (Sochi, home to the 2014 Olympic Winter Games and Formula One races, is considered to be Putin’s private prestige project.

It is not a destination where you will normally leave your yacht for the cold November and December months. Putin is rumored to have a residence named ‘Bocharov Ruchey’ in Sochi).  

Russian Crew

3) Graceful has a Russian native captain, with a Russian navy background. So the above is not hard evidence, the yacht could also be built for a Russian billionaire with close ties to the Putin government.

But until someone sends us a message with new information, we will list Vladimir Putin as the owner of the yacht Graceful.

Vladimir Putin

Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin (born 1952) started his career as an officer in the KGB. His last position was Lieutenant Colonel. In 1991 he entered politics, first in Saint Petersburg and later in Moscow.

In 1996 he came a member of President Boris Yeltsin's staff. When Yeltsin resigned in 1999, Putin became Acting President.

Putin has been ‘the leader of Russia’ since then: from 1999 to 2000 he was Prime Minister, from 2000 until 2008 he was President, from 2008 until 2012 he was Prime Minister and since 2012 he is President again.

Vladimir Putin Net Worth

According to official sources Vladimir Putin has a net worth or around USD 150,000. Some journalists and opposition politicians claim that Putin is actually the richest person in Europe, with a net worth of more than USD 40 billion.   

Vladimir Putin House

Putin is said to have many houses and palaces around the world. There are rumors that he owns large house in Marbella, Spain.

Private Jet

Putin uses an  Ilyushin Il-96-300 aircraft as private jet. The plane with registration RA-96016 was built in 2003 and is registered to the Russian State Transport Company. Putin also uses a Dassault Falcon 7X with registration RA-09009

Vladimir Putin Family

Putin has two daughters: Yekaterina (1986) and Mariya (1985). Photos of Yekaterina and Mariya have never been published by Russia's media and no family portraits have ever been released.
