Who is Andrei Skoch ?Andrey Skoch

He is one of the richest Russian billionaires. He was born in January 1960. He is married to Yelena Likhach. They have 10 children.


His father, Vladimir Skoch, is the beneficiary of the trust that is a 30% shareholder of USM Holdings. USM is a holding company with different assets including Metalloinvest.

Metalloinvest is one of the largest iron ore and hot-briquetted iron producers in the world and Megafon, a large telecom operator in Russia. The other shareholders of USM Holdings are Alisher Usmanov (60 percent) and Farhad Moshiri (10 percent).

Metallo Invest

After studying in Moscow, Andrei Skoch started working at the MontazhSpetsBank. Later Skoch joined Alisher Usmanov’s metallurgical business, with Skoch being responsible for Lebedinsky Mining.

When Usmanov merged his Arkhangelsk Mining business with Lebedinsky Mining and Oskal Metal Works, the Metalloinvest group was formed. In 2012 Metalloinvest realized net sales of USD 8,2 billion, with 62,000 employees.

Andrei Skoch Net Worth

In 1999 he became a Russian parliamentary deputy. Skoch is known as ‘the richest man in the Duma’. His  net worth is estimated at USD 7.1 billion.


Andrei Vladimirovitsj Skoch is an active philanthropist, in 2013 he was named one of the Top 10 Donors, by, after donating more than US$ 117 million in three years. Skoch sponsored a literary competition for young authors called Debut.

And he built a memorial to fallen Russian soldiers in Port Arthur, China, formerly known as Lushun, the site of the bloodiest battles of the Russo-Japanese war of 1904-1905.


Skoch is divorced with 9 children, including 4 quadruplets born in 1994. He lives in Moscow. His wife Elena Likhach-Skoch has been announced pregnant with his 10th child early 2016.

Private Jet

Skoch also owns an Airbus A319 business jet, with registration P4-MGU. An Airbus A319 has a list price of US$ 90 million.

Andrey Skoch House

We believe that Skoch owns residences in Sochi, in London and on the Cote D’Azur. The family also often resides in Monaco, on board Madame Gu. Skoch has a custom built ‘Disney’s Frozen’ themed swimming pool for his kids at his residence in Sochi.

Madame Gu Yacht

The Luxury Yacht was delivered by Feadship in 2013 after four years of construction. With a length of 99 meters, Madame Gu is one of the largest yachts built in the Netherlands.

The yacht’s interior and exterior are designed by Andrew Winch Designs. The yacht can reach a maximum speed of 24 knots, powered by four MTU 20v diesel engines. Madame Gu was named Superyacht of the Year in 2014.

Enclosed helicopter hangar

Superyacht Madame Gu has a fully enclosed helicopter hangar, similar to Ecstasea. The hangar can also function as a squash court.

Is Andrei Vladimirovitsj Skoch the owner of the superyacht?

A few years ago SuperYachtFan received a message from a London based PR company named Finsbury. Stating that Mr. Skoch is actually NOT the owner of the yacht. And requesting kindly to remove this information.

Paradise Papers

However research by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) disclosed disclosed that the Skoch family actually is the owner of the yacht. The contract was signed by Castel Shipping, based in Belize, but during construction the project was sold to Almano Holding on the Cayman Islands.

The Paradise Papers disclose that Elena Lickhach the owner of Almano Holdings is. Elena Lickhach is the wife of Skoch. So formally Skoch’s advisor is right: the yacht is not owned by Skoch, but by his wife. ;-)

Mr. Skoch also owned the Amels built motor yacht Gu. She was renamed Lady Gulya. And is now sold and named Astrid Conroy.

Yacht Helicopter

The yacht has an impressive tender: a Eurocopter Dauphin AS 365N3, with a cost price of around US$ 9 million. She is registered to Monacair, with registration number 3A-MGU.

Is She Available for Yacht Charter?

The boat is not available for yacht charter. And the yacht is not listed for sale.
