An oligarch´s idea of holiday fun
Early this morning, Russian oligarch - and owner of the Chelsea football team - was on his way to Copenhagen onboard his mega yacht MY Eclipse. Here are some facts about the world´s second largest privately owned yacht:
M/Y Eclipse is a luxury motor yacht constructed by Blohm + Voss of Hamburg, Germany. Her exterior and interior were designed by Terence Disdale Design and her naval architect was Francis Design. The yacht was delivered to Russian businessman Roman Abramovich on 9 December 2010. At 163.5 metres (536 ft) long, Eclipse is the world's second largest private yacht, 17.3 metres (57 ft) shorter than Azzam, which launched in April, 2013.[6 ''
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. Approximately 70 crew members are needed to operate the yacht and serve the guests.
