In today's world, many people judge the quality of your lifestyle by the amount of economic stability you have. One of the tell-tale signs of someone being very wealthy is the presence of a yacht.
So far in 2021, more yachts have been sold than in the same period of the previous three years. A large number of shipyards have an order book that extends to 2025. The rapid growth in demand for yachts is associated not only with the forced isolation during the pandemic, but also with the growth in the number of billionaires, which, according to Forbes, increased by 660 people in 2021 and reached 2755, which is an all-time high. The Monaco Yacht Show of 2021 featured 440 yachts and 101 superyachts worth €3.6 billion, half of which were launched in 2020 and 2021. We decided to put together a brief series of articles describing the features of the most interesting from the most expensive yachts that we know.
This series will be opened by the new yacht of Evraz co-owner, businessman and former scientist Alexander Abramov, launched in 2010. What do we know about this yacht besides its impressive cost of over $100 million?
