20 yachts of Russian billionaires who are worth more than the Russian NavyPictolic
The first twenty most expensive yachts owned by the richest people of Russia, in the construction cost the owners more than the budget of the country the ships of the Navy launched over the last decade.
That can offer their owners a modern yacht, which cost tens of millions of dollars? Radar, comparable in performance with the military, power plants, power with a small nuclear power plant, local booking, electronic warfare systems, helipads and even a mini-submarine — the list of features is very long.
Unmatched these vessels and sizes — some of them in size and displacement of more missile cruisers and even look like them. Here he writes about this unusual trend, the German newspaper Bild:
Modern construction is not just a whim of a man who is nowhere to put money. First and foremost is the challenge of the elements and society, personal territory, the inhabitants of which do not depend on the sanctions and other vicissitudes. Villa or the Palace and the Park is good, but don't take it with you, removing the anchor.

The total cost of the construction of these beauties is 6 billion euros.
For comparison, the fact that 10 FREMM frigates for the Italian Navy at a cost of 5.9 billion euros, and British series of 6 guided missile destroyers "of Daring" cost the Royal Navy 6 billion pounds. But Russian boats do not threaten anyone — they evoke the awe and delight of onlookers on the quays of nice and Dubai, surprising tourists on the beaches of Miami and Sydney, arouse acute jealousy of the rich on the parade of yachts in Fort Lauderdale (FL).
The undoubted leader of this squadron is an impressive 162-meter yacht Eclipse ("Eclipse"), owned by Roman Abramovich. On this boat there is everything that can afford the fantasy of a person with unlimited financial resources.

Eclipse construction cost 1.2 billion dollars, but this is not the only expensive toy of this kind, owned by a Russian oligarch. In his ownership, until recently, was also less than impressive 115 metre Luna, worth $ 800 million, he sold the Farkhad Akhmedov.
What man owning another Eclipse mega yacht? It's simple — the flagship of the yacht fleet is a place of recreation and entertainment, and Luna is an expedition ship, capable of sailing in all latitudes, up to the highest. Heavy-duty hull is able to withstand the fury of the "roaring forties" and the owner to deliver to the shores of Antarctica. The ship is not terrible, even the polar ice caps, and innovative diesel units allow for one filling to circumnavigate the globe.
Another "sea miracle" can be called Dilbar owned by Alisher Usmanov. With its 156-foot length, it is slightly inferior to the Eclipse in size, but confidently "make" her some other options. The uniqueness of this vessel in generating plants with a capacity of 30 megawatts. To understand that it's a lot, it is possible to give a simple example — the same power has one of the units floating nuclear power plant "Mikhail Lomonosov".
Why Mr. Usmanov this energy power? It's simple — Dilbar has no equal on the number of electrical equipment on Board. In addition to military radars the ship is equipped by system of suppression of pitching, numerous elevators and electrical drives everything possible.
Closes the three leaders of A Sailing Yacht, owned by the billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. Baseplane 143-metre vessel according to its tonnage bigger than Barca "Kruzenshtern" and "Sedov" together. Three masts, this vessel made of composite materials and have the dropdown automatically Rhea. For the convenience of their service within each include lifts, can carry humans on a 100-meter height in just a few seconds.
The square sails of A Sailing Yacht is larger than a football field, and for the full calmness and passage through the Suez canal and the Bosphorus, the ship is equipped with an innovative hybrid engines running quietly and with minimum emissions.
The yacht is full of security systems, such as intelligent recognition and fingerprint sensors. Also rumor has it that the owner of the yacht was ordered on Board a special armoured shelter, the massive walls of which are vying for the efficiency of protection with armor combat logging cruisers.
As usual the billionaires, the yacht ought to have an understudy. Private fleet Andrew Melnichenko this modest role is assigned to the 119-metre Motor Yacht A, nicknamed the "Russian Samwalton" in honor of the new American destroyers. High-speed yacht with a distinctive predatory shape, reduced the planet to the size of the infield. The owner can choose which ocean he wants to see the sunrise, and in which to dine under the stars.

In this regard, the trend today also and auxiliary vessels, which military support ships everywhere follow its luxury flagship.
Spare helicopter, tanks with diesel fuel, spare parts, another mini-submarine — now all this billionaire's uncomplicated belongings you can easily take a round the world trip and did not enter the ports, enjoying the open ocean and its incredible steepness.
