We heard he is building a new private yacht, but we have not been able to identify the project. Update: its the new Solaris yacht.
We were told that Abramovich is the new owner of the yacht Solaris. Project Solaris is an expedition yacht. She is more than 140 meters long. Some sources claim she will be much longer: near 200 meters.
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.
He was married to Dasha Zhukova and they have two children. Dasha comes from a rich family, her father is oligarch Alexander Zhukov.
