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.[4] The yacht was delivered to Russian businessman Roman Abramovich on 9 December 2010. At 163.5 metres (536 ft) long,[5] 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.[7] 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. (Wikipedia)
