Dilbar Seized by German Authorities

March 3, 2022 – According to international media the yacht Dilbar has been seized by German Authorities.

The yacht was seized as her owner Alisher Usmanov was sanctioned by the EU following the Russian aggression towards Ukraine.

Dilbar was docked in Hamburg at Blohm and Voss, for a refit.

Mr. Usmanov released a statement: “I believe that such a decision is unfair and the reasons employed to justify the sanctions are a set of false and defamatory allegations damaging my honor, dignity and business reputation.”

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)
