It must be superyachting season, with Russian billionaires fighting for column inches about their most expensive/lavish/largest/laser-equipped yachts. Roman Abramovich’s $US1.2billion, 170m Eclipse has appeared on film, as it sets sail from Germany this week.
It’s apparently got bulletproof glass, a missile defence system, and that famed anti-paparazzi laser shield, which detects CCDs used in cameras. Abramovich has got something to hide, by the sounds of it. It’s good to see Bloomberg’s video cameras were still able to snap it in port – guess that laser shield has the odd bit of downtime too.
