A Look at 15 Incredible Features in Chelsea Owner Roman Abramovich’s Super Yacht

Let’s be honest, most of us have dreamed of winning the lottery.

But even if you won the record Euromillions jackpot of £189million, you would still not have enough money to buy a yacht like Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’s.

In fact, winning the record Euromillions jackpot five times over would still not give you enough cash for the Eclipse.

Originally contracted at a price of around £500million, the Eclipse has is now known as ‘the $1.5billion yacht’… a hefty price tag, for sure.

The boat is arguably the most exclusive and extravagant piece of kit currently on water.

Abramovich sails around the world to a host of plush locations on his yacht, but is believed to rarely leave the boat himself.

And who could blame him, with all the amenities he has available for him.

Designed by French architect Hermidas Atabeyki, it was built by Blohm and Voss in 2010, with the interior kitted out by Terence Disdale.

It was the world’s largest private yacht for around three years (until the Azzam was built in 2013).

The Eclipse is 162 metres in length, weighs 13,564 tons and has an average speed of 29mph.

It has room for 70 crew members – and there is even more crew accommodation available than there are guest rooms.

Of the 53 cabins, only 18 are for guests, with the other 35 for catering staff. The staff also get their own private cinema room.

Those staying on the boat can have guest suites with balconies.

The yacht boasts two helicopter pads, but there is space for a third in a storage hanger in the back if need be.

It even has a mini submarine which holds three people, plus three launch boats.

There are two separate swimming pools on board and multiple hot tubs, allowing a level of privacy for guests who could be travelling with Abramovich.

One of the pools is the largest swimming pool to be placed on any private yacht in the world.

But that pool perhaps gets even more interesting, given that it can drain out, allowing the base to rise… and turn into a dance floor.

And if one dance floor was not enough, there is also another separate disco hall.

There are also a host of detection devices to ensure the security and privacy of those using the yacht.

It has previously been reported that Abramovich’s yacht has anti-paparazzi lasers, which can detect the electronic light sensors that cameras use

It means the camera is then targeted with a beam of bright light that overexposes the photo, rendering them useless.

However, given that pictures of Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry on the boat have been published previously, those claims are especially unlikely.

The Eclipse also has a missile-detection system.

So, if you ever wondered what winning the Euromillions might get you… it’s not this. Even this would be out of your league.
