He is a Russian billionaire and owner of the gas producer Itera. He was born in April 1962. We believe he is married and has 2 children. Until 2015 he owned three yachts named Areti, Areti I and Areti II. The name Areti is derived from Makarov’s company’s name Itera (spelled backwards).

What is Iteral International?

Itera International is one of the largest independent producers and traders of natural gas operating in the CIS and the Baltic states.

ITERA is active in energy, gas processing, and construction works projects in Europe, Asia, and the USA. The Company also deals with real estate and the in surance business.

Makarov is President and Chairman of the Board of Directors of ITERA International. ITERA has been involved in production of natural gas in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Region (YaNAO) in Western Siberia (Russia) since 1998.

The Company has invested over $1 billion in the gas industry.

ITERA is the first private company to put gas fields into operation in the Far North of Russia: Gubkinskoye gas field (reserves of 399 BCM) in 1999, gas deposit (reserves are 407 BCM) of Vostochno-Tarkosalinskoye field in 2001), and Beregovoye (reserves are 325 BCM) in 2003. Itera is also active in the USA.  

What Amount Did He Sell Itera For?

In 2012 Itera entered into a joint venture with Rosneft, the oil company controlled by the Russian state.

In 2013 Makarov sold all his shares in Itera to Rosneft US$2.9 billion . Makarov nows owns the Areti Group.

What is His Role at Katyusha?

Makarov is also founder of Katyusha, the Russian professional cycling team of the World Tour, and he is president of the Russian Cycling Federation.

Where Does Makarov Live?

He live s with his wife and 2 children in Florida. He also owns a house in Moscow and in France.

Does He Own a Private Jet?

He owns an Embrear ERJ-135 business jet with registration P4-IVM (Igor Viktorovich Makarov) and a 2010 Boeing Business Jet with registration P4-MAK.

Both jets have the same tail logo. We estimated the price of the Embraer at US$ 20 million and the BBJ at US$ 80 million.

How Much is Igor Makarov Worth?

His net worth is estimated by Forbes at US$ 2.1 billion.

Areti Yacht

Makarov ordered the two identical yachts Areti I and Areti II (built by Burger Yachts) so he can base one in the Mediterranean and one in America due to his business interests in each location.

He sold Areti II to Doug Lebda, founder and CEO of The Lending Tree. He named her T Zero) but still owns Areti I. For a few years he also owned the Trinity yacht Areti  (a 60 meter delivered in 2012).

Makarov sold the 60 meter Areti in 2015 and she is now named Mia Elise and owned by Florida based car dealer Terry Taylor.

Lurssen Yacht Areti

In the summer of 2017 Makarov’s new 85 meter yacht Areti was delivered by Lurssen. Areti is designed by Andrew Winch design and has a gross tonnage of 2,850t.
