Roman Abramovich Has One Of The Best And Most Expensive Yatch In The World. (See Photos)


Roman Arkadyevich Abramovich is a British-based Israeli-Russian billionaire businessman and politician. Abramovich is the primary owner of the private investment company Millhouse LLC, and is best known outside Russia as the owner of Chelsea F.C, a Premier League football club.

He owns a yacht called "Eclipse", Eclipse is a superyacht built by Blohm+Voss of Hamburg, Germany, the fourth longest afloat. Her exterior and interior were designed by Terence Disdale.

The yacht was delivered to Russian businessman Roman Abramovich on 9 December 2010. At 162.5 metres (533 ft 2 in) long Eclipse was the world's longest private yacht until the Azzam was launched in April 2013, which was 17.3 metres (56 ft 9 in) longer. The yacht's cost has been estimated at €340 million.

Eclipse has two helicopter pads, 24 guest cabins, two swimming pools, several hot tubs, and a disco hall. It is also equipped with three launch boats and a mini-submarine that is capable of submerging to 50 metres (160 ft). Approximately 70 crew members are needed to operate the yacht and serve the guests.

For security, Eclipse is fitted with a missile detection system.

She comfortably sleeps an impressive number of 36 guests in 18 stunning cabins and can cater for a staggering 70 crew members.

Abramovich’s primary concern, right after ensuring a luxurious environment in which his guests would want for nothing, was privacy.

As such, the Eclipse features the latest in safety features: motion sensors, bulletproof glass all around the private owner’s deck (yes, the master suite has its own deck) and some guest cabins, armor plating, anti-ballistic missile defense, and specialized security systems for each cabin.

The Eclipse can accommodate 36 guests and a 93 crew, across 11 staterooms and suites, and staff cabins. Each room for guests comes with its own massive TV and jacuzzi, and furnishes made specifically for this vessel.

Amenities include an atrium, fully-equipped gym and spa, a 52-foot pool whose bottom can be elevated to turn it into a dance floor, a smaller, less versatile pool, expansive sun decks and a beach club, a cinema, a smaller disco club, a hair salon and a restaurant, internal lifts and an external fireplace. It has room for a 3-person submarine that can go down to 160 feet, and no less than two helicopters – two on the helipads and one in a hangar.

Eclipse comes with three launch boats, six tenders and plenty of space to house a wide array of toys. For all the luxury amenities it provides, guests will want to have some fun on the water, as well.
