Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich ‘building secret 455ft super-yacht called Solaris with EIGHT decks and helipad’


CHELSEA owner Roman Abramovich is ‘building a secret 455ft super-yacht’ named Solaris that has already been cruising through the oceans.

The Russian, worth a cool £10bn, is overseeing the development of his latest toy – an incredible eight-deck monster that promises to be the most powerful yacht in the world.

It has not yet been officially confirmed by Abramovich that the Solaris is his, but a wide-range of reports already state it is his.

Now Forbes have also claimed that this is the case despite him trying to keep it ‘secret’.

And the 54-year-old, whose club defeated Manchester City in the Champions League final last month, is well-known to love travelling by sea.

This latest yacht is believed to be the EIGHTH in his collection.

The Solaris has recently been photographed for the Super YachtTimes undergoing trials in the North Sea.

Now the finishing touches are being put in place before the £430million job is completed.

The beast of the sea features eight decks and a helicopter pad.

The yacht is being built at the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Bremerhaven, Germany.

And the shed it is being constructed in is larger than Buckingham Palace.

The Solaris will have 48 cabins, accommodating up to 36 passengers, and a crew of 60.

It will also boast two advanced engines to make it the most powerful yacht in the world.

It is believed to have been designed by Australian Marc Newson and built by Lloyd Werft in Bremerhaven.

However, the huge Solaris will not even be the largest yacht in Abramovich’s fleet once he takes delivery of it later this year.

That honour still belongs to the 533-foot-long Eclipse that he bought back in 2010.
