In the press, the ship began to be called "Stalin's yacht", but there is no confirmation that the leader rested on it. It is also unknown whether Gorky has ever been on a ship named after himself. However, "Maxim Gorky" carried the first persons of the party: Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Beria, Kaganovich, Mikoyan, Ordzhonikidze and Molotov. Banquets, holidays and walks along the Moscow Canal were arranged on it.
