This yacht will become the third Pumpyansky. In February 2013 the exact same Turkish shipyard launched the current yacht Pumpyansky -. 72 m long Axioma He bought it in 2013 as the Monaco Yacht Show in YPI Yacht broker for € 62.5 million The boat was built under the name Project Red Square and original. intended for another Russian businessman, but he suffered from the economic crisis of 2008 and the construction of the yacht has been frozen for several years.
A month after its purchase Pumpyanskiy Axioma sold his first boat (42 m) for € 12.5 million. October 2015, YPI put up for sale and a new Axioma for € 68 million. Brokers have already received several offers to purchase the first two days but the sale of boatsthe new buyer is not yet known.
Pumpyanskiy does not hesitate to make a lease: Axioma is one of the most popular yacht for charter (rent is between € 490 000 to € 580 000 per week) and earned him $ 7 million for the first year.
Project Blade Pumpyanskiy enters the top 40 global boat length. Although the yacht tycoon pipe far from the Eclipse (162 m) Roman Abramovich, 13, the new most spacious yacht in the world Dilbar Alisher Usmanov 3 (156 m) or Sailing yacht A (142.8 m), Andrei Melnichenko, 11, Project Blade can close the ten largest yacht business with Russian roots with a length of over 100 meters.

«Project Blade, is likely to become an improved version of the existing Axioma. The overall style, I think it will be comparable. Boat on the initial stages of construction and it is little known, I think, to build Project Blade will cost at least € 100-150 million, "- said aboutsnovatel Yachtharbour Dmitry Semenihin. According to him, Turkey is cheaper to build a boat, since the local shipyard less untwisted, but spopobny build high-class boats.
The founder of the company yacht itBoat Nikita Gorchakov agreed that Turkish shipyards can significantly save money, especially if you build boats ranging in size from 60 meters. "But it's always a risk. The other day in Ibiza nearly drowned 37-meter Peri Yachts (Turkish Shipyards - approx Forbes.). Also still fresh in the memory of the history of Yogi, who died in a storm in 2012 ", - said Gorchakov.
Nevertheless, the Turkish shipyards have built some remarkable boats.
