Into Roman Abramovich's $1,500.000.000 Mega Yacht

When Roman Abramovich bought Eclipse in 2010, it was worth $450 million. Now, it is worth well over $1.5 billion, making it one of the most expensive yachts in the world. It was one of the most expensive back in 2010, but it is much more luxurious nowadays.

Just for maintenance, the Russian billionaire pays more than $50 million per year for his employees and workers.

Eclipse is two times larger than Stamford Bridge, the stadium on which his team Chelsea plays. It has all of the amenities you would expect at a mega yacht, but it also has a missile defense system.

The yacht was built by Blohm and Voss of Hamburg, and it features 24 guest cabins, two swimming pools, several hot tubs, a disco hall, two helicopter pads, three launch boats, mini-submarine, and much more.

For his security, Roman has installed fitted armor plating, bulletproof windows, anti-paparazzi shield, and much more in the master bedroom. For example, upon detection of possible lurking professional photographs, a light is shone directly upon the camera to prevent a photograph being taken.
