The motor yacht Luna is known as the world’s largest expedition yacht. She was built by Lloyd Werft. She was delivered to Roman Abramovich in 2010. Her exterior is designed by Newcruise. While Donald Starkey is responsible for her interior.

Yacht Interior

Luna has length of 115 meter (377 ft). She can accommodate 18 guests in 9 staterooms. Which are serviced by a crew of 49. She has a large swimming pool on the main deck. She is one of the largest explorer yachts.


Her diesel electric generators give her a top speed of 22 knots. Thanks to her 1 million liter fuel tank she has a range of 9,500 nm.

Almost no interior information has been release. But you can find some rare photos hereunder.

Sold for EUR 240 million

In 2014 she was sold by Russian billionaire Abramovich to his friend Akhmedov. He is an Azerbaijani born billionaire. Sales price was EUR 240 million (US$ 300 million).

In January 2015 Luna was spotted in Bremerhaven. She stayed at German Dry Docks for a year long and multi million refit.

US$ 50 Million Refit

Works included fairing of the hull. Which was not done when Abramovich purchased her. And a new paint job. Also Luna was lengthened with 2 meter to improve the balance of the yacht.

The spa area and beach club was redone. Adding larger windows for more light and comfort. The engines were overhauled. Improving power and efficiency. And finally all tenders were replaced.

In February 2016 Luna left Bremerhaven. With first destination Norway. In the winter of 2017/2018 Luna was sent to Dubai for additional works.

In July 2019 she is undergoing a 10 years survey maintenance.

Transfer of ownership

In the summer of 2018 a Dubai court confirmed an earlier London court order. That the ownership of Luna should be transferred to Akhmedov’s ex wife Tatiana. As part of a (disputed) divorce settlement. More here. DIFC courts have maintained a freezing order issued for the US$500 million luxury yacht.

In March 2019 a Dubai appeals court released the yacht from its seizure. The court decided that the UK court order was unenforceable in Dubai and the seizure of the superyacht should be canceled
