The World’s Largest Private Yacht Arrives in NYC

Picture 261

When the weather starts to warm up in NYC, it’s only natural to want to do a little boating. And if you have a private yacht — or the world’s largest private yacht — well, even better. A 533-foot yacht belonging to Russian businessman Roman Abramovich was recently spotted floating near the Statue of Liberty.

The massive boat features two helicopter pads, 24 guest cabins, two swimming pools, a few hot tubs, a disco hall, a military-grade missile defense system and a mini-submarine. Though the sight of a enormous yacht coasting along the Hudson is rare in itself, it’s even more out of the ordinary given Abramovich’s notoriously low-profile persona. The business tycoon is famously private and averse to publicity. Eclipse is almost always kept docked off Monaco, Cannes, Portfino or St. Bart’s.
