The R1 billion yacht belonging to one of Russia's most eligible bachelors has just docked in Cape Town
- The yacht is owned by 50-year-old Russian billionaire Alexander Svetakov with an estimated net worth of R38 billion ($3.3 billion).
- Svetakov was named one of Russia's most eligible bachelors in 2016.
- Built in 2016, the yacht features a helicopter pad, two jacuzzis, a gym, and a fireplace, and is estimated to be worth R1 billion.
- It can accommodate up to 12 guests in six cabins at a time with space for 22 crew members.
The 72-metre yacht Cloudbreak was first spotted in the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town on Friday afternoon.
The yacht is, however, believed to be on charter for the duration of its stay in the city, and probably not here to host its owner.
Built-in 2016 by famous shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen in Germany, it is named Cloudbreak after a wave in Fiji which daring surfers rank among their favourite.
It features a helicopter pad, two jacuzzis, a fully equipped spa, a gym, and a fireplace.
Boatinternational.com described it as "a high-tech floating chalet" after it was named the best yacht in the interior layout and design category at the Showboats Design Awards in 2017.
It can accommodate up to 12 guests in six cabins at a time with space for a crew of 22.
The yacht’s Norwegian-born designer Espen Øino said at it's launch, owner Svetakov remarked how the yacht was identical to the first sketch Øino gave him.
The designer said the owner provided him with a detailed list of every single piece of equipment, toy, tender and board he expected Cloudbreak should carry.
When the owner asked for outdoor beds, Øino did not hesitate.
“Outdoors people really love to sleep outside,” Øino says. “Cloudbreak is for an outdoorsman and a lover of nature."
