Just 9 days ago on April 20th I wrote a post about the most expensive yacht in the world. Little did I know that exactly on the same day the newest and most expensive yacht in the world finished construction.
The new yacht is called the Eclipse and is the fifth yacht of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. Abramovich is perhaps best known for owning the Chelsea football club in UK. The mega yacht was constructed by the German ship construction company Blohm & Voss and it is currently the largest and most expensive privately owned yacht in the world.
The exact cost of the Eclipse has not been revealed but according to different estimations it is between 400 and 800 dollars. This means that the newest most expensive yacht in the world is at least 50 to 450 million dollars more expensive than the previous worlds most expensive yacht called A. Pushed from the throne, A is only worth 350 million dollars.
What makes the most expensive yacht in the world unique
The 557-foot (167 meters) Eclipse is the largest yacht in the world. It has two helicopter landing pads, its own mini submarine, 2 hot tubs and 2 regular pools, a cinema. The newest and most expensive yacht in the world also has anti rocket systems for preventing terrorist attacks and is fully bullet-proof.
The roof of the Roman Abramovich’s master cabin opens on a push of a button – allowing the billionaire and his girlfriend Daria Zukova to watch the night stars.

Since the yacht is so new little is known of the inside design. The only photos of the Eclipse are from the outside.
