Russian Tycoon’s Luxury Yacht Dazzles Mykonos (video)



One of the biggest yachts in the world, the Ocean Victory which belongs to Russian billionaire Viktor Rashnikov, has docked in cosmopolitan Mykonos.

Residents and tourists have been gathering to snatch a glimpse of the $300 million (€254 million) luxurious floating palace.

Measuring 140 meters, the custom-made superyacht was built by the Italian shipyard Fincatieri in 2014.

The sleek ship is the largest yacht ever built in Italy and one of the ten largest in the world.

Its interior was conceived by Paris-based interior designer Alberto Pinto, known for his eclectic mixing of styles.

Rashnikov made his fortune in the iron and steel industry, being the majority owner of Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK), one of the world’s leading steel producers.

According to Forbes’ 2017 billionaire list, Rashnikov’s net worth was $8.3 billion, making him the 14th richest person in Russia, and the 156th richest person in the world.
