Wealthy Russians are famed for their magnificent superyachts.
Roman Abramovich’s Solaris and Eclipse, as well as Russian steel magnate Alisher Usmanov’s Dilbar, are among the world’s greatest megayachts in terms of size, amenities, and value.
While Abramovich is doing everything he can to keep his ships from being seized and has the $600 million megayacht Solaris on the run once more, Usmanov has failed.
According to Forbes, the approximately $600 million yacht Dilbar was apprehended by German officials from the Federal Criminal Police Office in Hamburg’s dock.
Gulbakhor Ismailova, Usmanov’s sister, was discovered to be the owner of the 500-foot-long Dilbar after an investigation into the “offshore concealing” of the early Facebook investor Usmanov.
Unfortunately for the wealthy siblings, the EU sanctions lists include Alisher Usmanov’s sister, Gulbakhor Ismailova, who owns an Airbus A340-300 jet and a helicopter (transferred by her brother).
According to Forbes, the 63-year-old Russian-Uzbek citizen Ismailova also owns three villas in Arzachena on the Italian island of Sardinia worth a collective $26.5 million; homes and land in the Croatian coastal town of Drače worth $5.6 million; and a $620,500 apartment in Jūrmala, Latvia.
The Dilbar superyacht was without a doubt the jewel in her crown.
This colossus of the seas boasts a massive 100-foot swimming pool, the largest indoor pool ever installed on a yacht, and 3,800 square meters of living space for 24 guests.
The upkeep of the world’s fourth-longest ship necessitates a crew of 100 people and a large sum of money.
A total fuel capacity of 1,000,049 liters is available on the luxurious sea-faring megayacht.
For one refueling, the huge tanks of the Dilbar superyacht cost a mind-boggling $783,822.
The electric-diesel hybrid cruiser is Lürssen’s fourth luxury ship to be confiscated.
