Roman Abramovich's Flotilla

Roman Abramovich, whose worth is estimated by Forbes magazine at $18.7 billion.

Heard the old saw about the sailor who has a girl at every port? Russian industrialist magnate Roman Abramovich is well on his way to having a different megayacht stationed in each of the world's most exclusive ports of call. Abramovich owns two vessels on the Power & Motoryacht 100: the 377'3" Pelorus and the 282'0" Ecstasea. Rumor has it he gave a previous yacht, the 370'0" Le Grand Bleu, to a friend.

But Abramovich, whose worth is estimated by Forbes magazine at $18.7 billion, may be losing a member of his fleet. As reported last spring on the Power & Motoryacht Editors Blog by executive editor Diane M. Byrne (Roman Abramovich: Yachtless?), rumors abound of a divorce settlement that may result in Abramovich owning one fewer boat when the dust settles. Byrne reminded us not to pity him: He's said to also own a vessel codenamed Eclipse, which is under construction at German yard Blohm + Voss and is in the 500-foot range.
