The yacht Eclipse is known as ‘the USD 1.5 billion yacht’. Although her real cost price was considerably less. Her original contract price was around EUR 550 million, or USD 700 million.  Eclipse was delivered by Blohm and Voss in 2010.

Eclipse was the largest yacht in the world. But this title is now reserved for superyacht Azzam. Eclipse is designed by Terence Disdale. He is also responsible for Eclipse’s interior design.

Owner of the yacht

The Russian billionaire yacht is owned by Roman Arkadyevich Abramovich. He is one of the richest people in the world. He sold his oil company Sibneft for US$ 13 billion.

Anti Paparazzi systems

Eclipse is said to have an anti-paparazzi system. It is a laser used to detect the electronic light sensors that digital cameras use. The camera is then targeted with a beam of bright light. That overexposes the photo, which becomes useless.

Many online sources doubt whether such technology actually exists.

Eclipse Interior

In March 2016 Boat International had an amazing photoshoot of Eclipse interior. But further, there is not much known about the yachts inside. Eclipse has two swimming pools and two helicopter pads.

Crew Members

She has a crew of 70, residing in 35 cabins. There are 2 dedicated staff cabins on the owner’s deck. The crew has its own dedicated cinema in the bow of the yacht.

She was built in total secrecy. Early 2013 Eclipse arrived in New York and docked in Manhattan. In June 2014 Eclipse was laying for anchor near Antibes France for a few days.

2015 Refit

Early 2015 Eclipse was seen in a drydock at the Blohm+Voss yard in Hamburg for a refit. In June 2015 she visited Bergen in Norway. And in November 2015 she was back at Blohm & Voss for some maintenance.
