The Striking Yacht of Abramovich Arrives in Crete

ECLIPSE_abraThe luxurious yacht “Eclipse” of Russian Roman Abramovich, is located in the Venetian Port of Chania in Crete. The yacht was anchored northeast of the harbor entrance, so as not to obstruct the navigation. Due to the length and depth of the vessel it was not possible to come into the old port.

The occupants of Eclipse took the necessary documents from the port authorities and they disembarked in Chania. At the same time, the Venetian harbor in Chania was overcrowded and people were taking photographs of the most luxurious yachts in the world.

The yacht “Eclipse” is the epitome of technology and luxury. It is 164 meters in length and has two helipads, 24 suites – hostels, two swimming pools and discos. It also has three auxiliary boats and a mini submarine with the ability to dive in 50 meters, while the crew consists of 70 people. Moreover, the yacht has rocket launchers, bulletproof windows, as well as shields and laser technology.

The luxury yacht arrived in Crete from Karpathos but it is not clear if the Russian owner was among the passengers. The luxury yacht cruises in Greek islands and has already passed from Rhodes, Symi and Kos.

According to sources the next destination is Santorini.

But details of her interior is still closely held. We have super yachts available for charter but nothing as large as the Eclipse:
