Luxury Yacht Eclipse

The $1.5 Billion Dollar Yacht

The yacht Eclipse is known as ‘the USD 1.5 billion yacht’, although her real cost price was considerably less. Her original contract price was around EUR 400 million, or USD 500 million.

The yacht Eclipse was the largest yacht in the world, but this title is now reserved for superyacht Azzam. Eclipse is designed by Terence Disdale, who is also responsible for Eclipse’ interior design.

Who is the owner of the yacht Eclipse?

The yacht Eclipse is owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, one of the richest people in the world. He sold his oil company Sibneft for US$ 13 billion.

Anti Paparazzi systems?

Eclipse is said to have an anti paparazzi system, a laser which is used to detect the electronic light sensors that digital cameras use. The camera is then targeted with a beam of bright light that overexposes the photo, which becomes useless.

Many online sources doubt whether such technology actually exists.

Yacht Eclipse Interior

In March 2016 Boat International had an amazing photo shoot of Eclipse interior. But further there is not much known about the yachts inside.

Yacht Eclipse Crew

Eclipse has two swimming pools and two helicopter pads, she has a crew of 70. Eclipse was delivered by Blohm and Voss in 2010.

She was built in total secrecy. Early 2013 Eclipse arrived in New York and docked in Manhattan. In June 2014 Eclipse was laying for anchor near Antibes, France for a few days.

A refit in 2015

Early 2015 Eclipse was seen in a drydock at the Blohm+Voss yard in Hamburg for a refit.In June 2015 she visited Bergen in Norway. And in November 2015 she was back at Blohm & Voss for some maintenance.

Roman Abramovich Yacht

Who is Roman Abramovich?

In 1988 Abramovich and his wife set up a company making dolls, which was an immediate success. Within a few years he also started investing in other businesses.

From 1992 to 1995, Abramovich founded five companies that conducted resale, produced consumer goods, and acted as intermediaries, specializing in the trading of oil and oil products.

Abramovich set up and liquidated at least 20 companies during the early 1990s, in sectors as diverse as tire re treading and bodyguard recruitment.

Roman AbramovichSibneft

In 1995, Abramovich and Boris Berezovsky, an associate of President Boris Yeltsin, acquired the controlling interest in the large oil company Sibneft.

Each partner paid USD 100 million for half of the company and rapidly turned it into billions.

Abramovich sold his stake in Russian Aluminum to billionaire Oleg Deripaska and his stake in Sibneft to Gazprom for USD 13 billion in 2005.

Chelsea Football Team

Abramovich owns the U.K.'s Chelsea soccer team, which he acquired in 2003. He spent millions acquiring players. Since the takeover, the club have won 13 major trophies , making Chelsea the most successful English trophy winning team in the decade.

Roman Abramovich Net Worth

Roman Abramovich is the 12th richest Russian with an estimated net worth of USD 11.4 billion (August 2018).

Private Jets

Abramovich owns a Boeing 767 private jet (registered as P4-MES), and he owns a Gulfstream G650 with registration LX-GVI. His ex-wife Irina Abramovich owns a Dassault Falcon 900 with registration G-TAGF.

Other Yachts

Roman Abramovich also owns the gas turbine powered yacht Sussurro and he owned the expedition yacht Luna.

He also owned the yacht Le Grand Blue, but he gave her to his friend Eugene Shvidler in 2006. Early 2014 Abramovich sold a London mansion for US$ 40 million to Tetra-Pack heir Hans Rausing.

In 2014 Abramovich sold Luna to Azerbaijani billionaire Farkhad Akhmedov. Akhmedov acquired his wealth through natural gas producer Northgas, which he sold in 2012.

New Expedition Yacht

We heard Abramovich is building a new  yacht, but we have not been able to identify the project.

UPDATE November 2018

We were told that Abramovich is the new owner of the Project Solaris. Solaris is a 130- 140 meter expedition yacht, under construction at Lloyd Werft in Bremen Germany.

We found an article in a German newspaper, more or less confirming this news. Production started in 2017, which makes sense given the current status of the hull.

Lloyd Werft also built Abramovich’ previous expedition yacht Luna, which he sold to Farkhad Akhmedov

Abramovich Wife

He was married to Dasha Zhukova and they have two children. Dasha comes from a rich family, her father is oligarch Alexander Zhukov.

Abramovich was married twice before: his first wife was Olga, but that was before he became rich.

His second wife Irina was a stewardess, she apparently received a US$ 300 million divorce settlement and is said to have received the yacht Sussurro as part of the settlement.

Divorce from Dasha

In August 2017 is was announced that Abramovich and Dasha will separate after a 10 year marriage, but  will continue to work together in business. She will probably receive a divorce settlement of a few hundred million.

Roman Abramovich House

Roman Abramovich owns several houses, or residences, around the world.

US$ 200 Million London House

On of his most expensive real estate is his Lowndes Square, London apartment. Lowndes Square is an expensive residential community in Belgravia, London.

Abramovich purchased six adjoining flats over the years at this address. He plans to transform the flats into a single home. It will have a value of around US$ 200 million when completed.

US$ 75 Million New York Mansion

In 2013 Abramovich purchased a mansion on 828 Fifth Avenue in New York. He paid US$ 75 million, a record price for a housing cooperative building. The mansion was built in 1886 for Edward Berwind and is therefore known as the Berwind Mansion.

In 2014 some legal troubles occurred with the purchase, as the previous owners’ widow, Angelika Ivanc, is challenging the sale in court, trying to get  even more money.

West Sussex Estate

Abramovich owns another UK property: Fyning Hill estate in West Sussex. It is a seven bedroom house with polo pitches, a clay pigeon range, a trout lake, a private go-cart range and a 100 horse stable.

The estate was previously owned by the King Hussein of Jordan and Australian media tycoon Kerry Packer.

Mediterranean Villas

In the South of France, or more precise in Cap D’Antibes, Abramovich owns the Chateau de la Croë. Previous residents in this castle were The Duke of Windsor, Aristotle Onassis and Stavros Niarchos.

Abramovich is rumored to have spend more than US$ 40 million on the renovation of Chateau de la Croë. Abramovich has another Mediterranean area property, as he owns Villa Bover, on Lake Garda, Italy’s largest lake.

He purchased Villa Bover from famous Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher for a report amount of US$ 24 million.
