Chelsea Owner Roman Abramovich Splashes Out On £430 Million Superyacht And It Looks Insane

Roman Abramovich's £430 million superyacht has been spotted on the sea for the first time and it looks incredible.

The Chelsea owner has a net worth of £12.101 billion and was eighth on the most recent 'The Sunday Times Rich List'.

The 54-year-old lives a life of luxury and less than a week after Chelsea announced the club-record £97.5 million capture of Romelu Lukaku, Abramovich's recent purchase has been unveiled.


Joe Pompliano tweeted footage of the yacht and even in just a 12 second clip, you see what a beauty it is.

As per the Daily Mail, the Solaris custom-made yacht is 460ft (140m) overall and has 48 cabins across eight different decks. There's space for a crew of 60 and 36 guests if Abramovich wishes to invite some of his friends and family onboard.

It comes with at least one swimming pool, gym, sauna, jacuzzi and spa, an outdoor beach club and a helipad. There's also high-speed 20 jet-skis, while there's talk that Abramovich will buy a personal submarine too.

Julien Hubert, who took pictures of the yacht on a drone, said it was among the biggest 15 yachts he'd ever seen in his time photographing vessels.

But remarkably, it isn't even Abramovich's biggest yacht. At the moment, he is said to be in Croatia on his 530ft (160m) vessel Eclipse, which set him back £500 million in 2010.

The Eclipse yacht has a nightclub with a dancefloor and a beauty salon.

Abramovich, who also had a 200ft Sussurro, hasn't yet tried out his new toy but is said to be looking forward to cruising on his new schooner in the near future.

Said to be built for more intrepid cruising, the Solaris is believed to be one of the most technologically advanced private boats in the world and was created in a facility that was bigger and taller than Buckingham Palace.
