The Eclipse yacht owned by Roman Abramovich came to the Port of Gruz to fill up on fuel. It seems that around 750 tons were ordered, which is more than a half of the capacity of the fuel tank. The cost – around million euros – reports Dubrovacki.hr. Meaning that by the time the Russian's yacht was half full Croatia had earned 250,000 Euros in VAT.
The super-long yacht of 163 meters worth 340 million euros was purchased by the Russian billionaire owner of Chelsea FC in 2010. It weights around 13 thousand tons, width is 21 meters and the annual maintenance costs are around 30 million euros. Yes, you need deep pockets for this kind of nautical pleasure.
The yacht can host 62 guests and 70 crew members and it has swimming pools, saunas, movie theaters, jewelleries, hairdressing centers, kindergartens, restaurants, clubs and even a hospital.
Additional equipment includes two helicopters, submarines, rocket radars, rescue boats and many other insurance systems. It would seem that Abramovich didn't cut any corners when fitting out his favourite super yacht.
