Who is Roman Abramovich?Roman Abramovich

He is a Russian billionaire born in 1966. He has 7 children. He is owner of the investment company Millhouse and football club Chelsea FC. In 1988 Abramovich and his wife set up a company making dolls. This which was an immediate success. Within a few years he also started investing in other businesses.



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



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







Sibneft

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



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



He sold his stake in Russian Aluminum to billionaire Oleg Deripaska. And he sold his stake in Sibneft to Gazprom for USD 13 billion in 2005. He still owns shares in Norilsk Nickel.




Chelsea Football Team

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




Billionaire Roman Abramovich Net Worth

He is the 12th richest Russian with an estimated net worth of US$ 13.1 billion (May 2019).




Private Jets

He owns a Boeing 767 private jet registered as P4-MES. And he o wns a Gulfstream G650 with registration LX-GVI. His ex-wife Irina Abramovich owns a Dassault Falcon 900 with registration G-TAGF.




Other Yachts

He also owned the gas turbine powered yacht Sussurro. Sussurro was given to his ex-wife as part of a divorce settlement. 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. Akhmedov sold Northgas in 2012.




New Expedition Yacht

We heard he is building a new private 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. She is 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 his 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.



He was married twice before, his first wife was Olga. That marriage was before he became rich.



His second wife Irina was a stewardess. She apparently rece ived 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 it was announced that Roman and Dasha will separate after a 10 year marriage. But they  will continue to work together in business. She will probably receive a divorce settlement of a few hundred million.

The $1.5 Billion Dollar Eclipse Yacht

The yacht is known as ‘the USD 1.5 billion yacht’. Although her real cost price was considerably less. Her original contract price was around EUR 550 million, or USD 700 million.



Eclipse was the largest yacht in the world. But this title is now reserved for superyacht Azzam. Eclipse is desi gned by Terence Disdale. He is also responsible for Eclipse’ interior design.




Who is the owner of the yacht?

The Russian billionaire yacht is owned by Roman Arkadyevich Abramovich. He is 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 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 Crew

Eclipse has two swimming pools and two helicopter pads. She has a crew of 70. Eclipse was deli vered 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.



See some photos by Tom Gulbrandsen here. Source of some of the photo’s on this page: Marinetraffic.com . The yacht is not available for charter. Every winter Eclipse visits St Barth for New Years Eve.




Yacht Charter

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