A true show of luxury on the waters was witnessed at the Monaco Yacht Show in Monte Carlo this past weekend. Going by the indulgence of the super riches, this show was just their type. An estimated $4.5 billion worth of yachts on display none of which were less than 100 ft, of the 98 crafts on exhibit. The show stealer was Anastasia worth $200 millions!
True to its worth, it’s rumored that this luxury yacht belongs to Vladimir Potanin, the 25th richest man in the world! Some dandy he could be, going by the extravagant features of the yacht.
Completed by a leading Dutch shipyard Oceanco for the Russian billionaire, the Anastasia features six decks, luxe quarters for 12 passengers and 20 crew members including a duplex master suite, a ten seat cinema, a discotheque with a laser light display and smoke machine, an artificial coral reef and 800-gallon fish tank, a swimming pool with a transparent wall, a sunbathing platform which converts into a stage for live music, a library upholstered in crocodile skin, and a hanger full of speedboats and jet skis.
Now this is what self indulgence all about! The world may go kaput with their finance handlings yet if you belong to those who need not bother about credit crunch, then this yacht is already worth more than what it was paid for by Potanin. Heavy pampering guarantee plus a whale of time once invited, if you are a dear friend of the owner off course!
