MY 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.
We believe he still owns the yacht Areti I.
