Spotted in Galle, Sri Lanka with new colors.
March 10, 2022. It seems the yacht Alaiya had a small refit after she was bought by the Mittal family.
The last two years, she sailed with a two-tone color scheme (with the upper decks brighter than the hull).
Now it seems her hull and superstructure are painted the same color.
She was spotted in Galle, Sri Lanka by Firat Sahin.
We received several messages that her original owner is related to the Ukrainian logistics company TIS.
We also received a more specific message, that her owner was Alexey Fedorychev. And not to our surprise he is (or was) the majority shareholder of this company named TIS. And we found online articles stating that he is building a large yacht. (And that he chartered large yachts in the past).
We were also told that her owner defaulted on the purchase contract. And that the yacht was subsequently repossessed by Lurssen. She was later listed for sale, asking EUR 275,000,000. In 2020 she was reported sold and was sent to Lurssen in Germany for a refit.
Who is Alexei Fedorychev?
He is the founder of Fedcominvest, a commodities and export business. And he is a sponsor of AS Monaco FC. He resides in Monaco.
He is the former owner of the Russian football clubs FC Dynamo Moscow and FC Rostov. He is the original owner of the yacht TIS.
After starting his career as a professional footballer for Moscow club FC Dynamo, Mr. Fedoricsev began trading in car parts during the fall of the Soviet Union. He quickly became a specialist in the business of logistics, concentrating on transporting and trading in grain and chemicals including ammonia, phosphates, and sulfur. His company, Fedcominvest, is now a global leader in the field.
Fedcominvest Europe SARL, is a world-leading export business, specializing in the trading of grain, sulfur, and fertilizers.
Founded in 2009 in the Principality of Monaco, the company has expertise in the storage, shipping, and distribution of a variety of commodities. Fedcominvest has a significant presence in Western Europe and is a market leader in the supply of grain from the deep-water ports of the Odessa region to countries in the MENA region.
In 2016 Fedcominvest shipped over 5 million tonnes of grain to countries around the world including, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, and Vietnam.
The company was or still is the owner of the Terminals TIS Group — Ukraine’s largest dry cargo port, based in Odessa.
Fedorychev Net Worth
In 2011 his net worth was estimated at US$ 700 million. We estimate his current net worth at US$ 1 billion
Immediately after she was sold, we received messages that Tis was bought by Usmanov. He reportedly needed a temporary replacement for his yacht Dilbar, as Dilbar was going to have a big (8 months) refit.
This scenario is still possible (in December 2020). But then we expect Dilbar to move to Germany soon.
During the Christman holiday season, both Dilbar and Lady Gulya were cruising together for a long period.
Also, we expected Ona, as a new name and not Lady Gulya.
There has been another Lady Gulya in the past. That was Andrei Skoch‘s (former) yacht GU, which was renamed Lady Gulya when his new yacht Madame Gu was delivered. However, we were told, that Skoch sold the yacht before she was named Lady Gulya.
The German newspaper Bild, did mention Skoch as the owner of Lady Gulya.
We are still a bit in doubt, but the yacht is either owned by Usmanov or Andrey Skoch. And probably by Usmanov.
Eric Smidt Yacht INFINITY
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.
The SuperYachtFan team is active in Investigative journalism. We spend a lot of team researching and deeply investigating yacht ownership structures.
Our reporting is copied and/or used by many international media companies.
With thousands of daily visitors and a strong growth rate, SuperYachtFan became one of the largest ‘superyacht sites’. We realize the most organic search traffic of all known yachting websites.
The details about yacht ownership as stated on this site and in our Yacht Owners Register are sometimes based on rumors. Often actual yacht ownership by the private individuals mentioned can not be confirmed, at least from a legal point of view.
On the other hand… where there’s smoke, there is fire ;-)
