Owners Name: Yuri Milner -
We were told that Yuri Milner is the owner of the Yacht Andromeda. We are aware of a denial of his ownership by Burgess Yachts, but we received numerous claims that he actually is the owner of the yacht. (Photos by Raphael Belly)
Milner is a Russian billionaire, residing in the USA. He is the founder of the investment company DST Global.
Milner is an early investor in Internet companies as Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, AirBn and WhatsApp. He was shareholder and Chairman of Mail.Ru, Russia’s largest internet company.
Mail.Ru started as a simple email -
In 2001 Milner merged his own Internet company NetBridge with Mail.ru and became CEO of the group. In 2003 he resigned and founded Digital Sky Technologies.
In 2006 DST bought Mail.RU for US$ 100 million. In 2010 he brought the company to the London stock market, raising US$ 5 billion.
DST Global is Milner’s private investment fund. Through DST, Milner owned 8% of Facebook and 5% of Twitter. He sold all shares at a big profit.
Other investments include Alibaba, WhatsApp, fashion company Farfetch and Habito.
The net worth of Yuri Milner is estimated at US$ 3.7 billion.
Yuri and is wife Julia Milner live in a large house in Los Angeles. The house is built on a hill and has amazing views over the area. He reportedly paid US$ 100 million for the house in 2011.
We think Yuri Milner owns a private jet, but we have not yet/jet been able to find its registration number. Do you know more about a private jet owned by Yuri Milner? Please do send us a message.
We found some supporting evidence of the statement that Milner owns Andromeda. The yacht is formally registered to a company named Proxima Y Ltd, based in the Cayman Islands.
This company Proxima Y uses the same address (a certain PO Box in the Cayman Islands) as a formal SEC statement issued by DST Global.
However we were contacted by a representative of Mr. Milner, denying his involvement in the yacht.
Statement by a representative of Mr Milner
