The yacht Barbara in Fort Lauderdale.

She was built by Oceanco in 2017, for Russian billionaire Vladimir Potanin.

He sold her to a New York-based hedge fund manager.

We are still searching for his identity (Please mail us if you have info).

Potanin owned 3 large yachts (at the same time): Barbara, Anastasia (now named Wheels) and Nirvana.

He sold all three, as he is building a larger (> 100 meters / 330ft) yacht in the Netherlands
