The yacht Barbara has been sold to an undisclosed buyer, based in New York.

The superyacht was built by Oceanco in 2017. Her designer is Sam Sorgiovanni.

She was built for Russian billionaire Vladimir Potanin, who owned 2 other large Oceanco yachts at that same time.

He sold Barbara and Anastasia (now named Wheels). As far as we are aware, he still owns the Oceanco yacht Nirvana.

Potanin is building a larger yacht in the Netherlands.

What started as a ‘yacht spotter’ hobby, turned into a fast-growing yachting site with thousands of unique daily visitors.

In 2009 SuperYachtFan in its current format was published online and soon the focus changed from ‘yacht photos’ to ‘yacht owners’, creating the Super Yacht Owners Register. A database with more than 1,450 yacht owners.

This was an instant success as many people around the world are interested in, or curious about, these multi-million dollar yachts and their wealthy owners. (Luxury travels of the Billionaire Boys Club)
