Russia billionaires move superyachts to Maldives, data shows
At least five superyachts owned by Russian billionaires were anchored or cruising in Maldives, an Indian Ocean island nation that does not have an extradition treaty with the United States, ship tracking data have shown.
Forbes reported that Germany had seized Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov’s mega yacht in a Hamburg shipyard.
Usmanov was on a list of billionaires to face sanctions from the European Union. A Forbes report based on three sources in the yacht industry said his 512-foot yacht Dilbar, valued at $600m, was seized by German authorities.
Three further yachts owned by Russian billionaires were seen cruising in Maldives waters, the data showed. They include the 88-metre (288 ft) Nirvana owned by Russia’s richest man, Vladimir Potanin.
