Nice looking boat....He should just set sail with the yard Owner, Forman and workes aboard...if they dont finish by the time he gets to where he wants to be for World Cup their trip home and their paycheck is their problum.

If you can tell I have lost all sympthy for boat yards.

I'm appalled by this Russian extravagance. American billionaires are much more conservative and understated. We saw Paul Allen's yacht, Octopus, in Port Everglades back in February. Two helipads crammed into a mere 414' and all for a paltry $120 million (2003). OTOH, maybe Paul's looking to upgrade:

I don't know. I kinda like the idea of it. I'd LOVE to have the kind of wealth that I could spend it on something like that. I know if I had the cash flow to do something like that, I would! Except I might to to put a jet strip on it!

It doesn't look bad to me. Just uninspired. Nothing special about it, it's just big. Big is cool, but there doesn't seem to be anything special about it.

Oh well, still cool to see what a yard can do when someone throws money at them.

Nothing special? It has a submarine! Probably some pretty good rubber duckies too.

That second helipad though, that's a nice feature. I think he's got me there.
Bash, Don't worry about that 2nd helipad- $800,000,000.00 can buy a LOT of condoms!!
