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).
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 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.
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.
