Yacht Anastasia (75.5 m), which was attributed to the property of the main owner of Norilsk Nickel, Vladimir Potanin, once again found itself on the market. This is evidenced by the dispatch of yacht broker YPI Broker. The same company is now selling the Axioma yacht (72 m) by Dmitry Pumpyansky.

The price is not indicated in the mailing list, but the owner changed the price several times before - in 2015 the broker Edmiston reduced it by € 32 million (from € 125 million to $ 110 million). Typically, the change in the currency of the transaction is associated with an attempt to sell it on another continent. According to the founder of Yachtharbour Dmitry Semenikhin, Anastasia was built in 2008 during the lifting of the Dutch shipyard Oceanco, which began to build yachts from 80 m and became a serious player in this niche. Anastasia has seven cabins, which can accommodate 12 people. The yacht has a jacuzzi, a gym, a cinema and a huge hangar for tenders and water motorcycles. The maximum speed of the boat is 18 knots.

Also to Potanin was the yacht Nirvana (88.5 m), which was also on sale, but disappeared from the market at the beginning of the year. The boat also changed the price - originally it was wanted to sell for € 230 million, and by the end of 2014 for € 199 million. Now Nirvana is available for a charter for 900,000 euros a week plus maintenance costs. Nirvana has six cabins, the owner's cabin occupies more than half of the upper deck. The boat has a 3D cinema, bars, terraces and a restaurant overlooking the sea, a fully equipped gym and spa, as well as a terrarium with exotic reptiles, a 7.5 m pool and 1.4 m deep - one of the largest swimming pools. The maximum speed of the yacht is 20 knots (slightly less than 38 km / h). At an average speed of 14 knots Nirvana is able to pass more than 5000 nautical miles without refueling.

About Nirvana and Anastasia mentioned and the former wife of Potanin Natalia in conversation with the magazine Tatler. She explained that from a legal point of view the businessman does not own. The same Natalia Potanina reported that Vladimir Potanin could have another yacht from the Dutch manufacturer Oceanco.

According to the Forbes source, it could be a Barbara yacht (88.5 m), which is similar to Nirvana and was on sea trials this year. Arguments are added by the fact that it is built on Oceanco and as two drops of water it is similar to the first two yachts that were attributed to Potanin. "The distinctive feature of Anastasia, Nirvana and Barbara is their blue body with a red line, a panel covered with wood from behind. These elements are present on all three yachts. Barbara has a similar size (88.5 m) and a performance like that of Nirvana. The exterior design of the Barbara is different from the other two boats by round forms of mirrors and lines on different decks, "says Semenikhin.

How much can this fleet cost? "The average check of the cost of the boat from 30 to 50 m - from $ 1.5 million to $ 2 million per m, from 50 to 100 m - $ 2-2.5 million, and after 100 m - $ 4-5 million," says the founder of Burevestnik Group Andrey Boyko. Thus, the fleet of the owner Anastasia, Nirvana and Barbara can be valued at about $ 500 million.

Representative Vladimir Potanin said that he would not comment on personal issues.
