Photos: ‘Eclipse’ Super Yacht Back In Bermuda

November 9, 2014

Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich’s super yacht Eclipse – which some reports estimate to be worth over a billion dollars — is back in Bermuda, with the luxury vessel docked in Hamilton.

The super-yacht is over 500 ft long and was the largest privately owned super-yacht in the world until Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan unveiled the 590-foot long Azzam last year.

The Eclipse — which also visited the island last year – is reported to have at least two helicopter pads, several jacuzzis, two swimming pools, steam room, disco hall, library, three larger tenders, a private submarine, six-foot movie screens in all guest cabins, 20 jet skis and some 6,000 sq ft of living space.

A look at the Eclipse in Bermuda last year:

There are numerous reports about the motor yacht’s various high tech security technology, which is said to include motion sensors, armour plating, a special missile detection defense system, and missile-proof windows.

The yacht has been billed as a ‘floating fortress’, with the crew of 70 said to include former SAS and Special Boat Service personnel.

The reported cost of the yacht varies from $500 million to $1.2 billion dollars, with various reports citing different values. You can view our past coverage of the Eclipse super-yacht here, and all our coverage of the various super-yachts that dock in Bermuda here.

    Is the public allowed onboard for a visit? I’m a die hard Chelsea fan would love to…

    • Creamy says:

      My guess would be no.

      • sage says:

        You dummies bought it, don’t think you can get on it though.

        • pebblebeach says:

          LMAO..your funny…

        • Bye darn de rerd says:

          The Chelsea supporters didn’t buy ‘Eclipse’, the Oligarch took his money from the working class people of Russia. I doubt if you would see it moored in that country!

  2. Bermy girl says:

    I was just thinning that! That would be so awesome if locals can go abroad

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      Locals can’t be trusted to leave peoples emergency generators alone unguarded & you think that they could be trusted on a boat like this????

      • Mixitup says:

        “Locals can’t be trusted to leave peoples emergency generators alone unguarded”

        I would’ve worded it like this: “THEIVES can’t be trusted to leave peoples emergency generators alone unguarded”
        Well, of course, unless you have an issue with locals in general… Let me scroll back through your other posts to see if I see a pattern here.

        • Triangle Drifter says:

          If I had called locals thieves I would have been attacked anyway.

          Glad you have acknowledged that there are plenty of thieves here & did not contest the inadvisability of letting locals onto the boat.

          • mixitup says:

            Forget the shovel, looks like you’re using a backhoe.

      • Mixitup says:

        And 9+ ‘Likes’ to boot?!! Get the picture LOCALS! Beware of these types of trolls, they can hide behind many things, but they eventually slip up and expose their true thinking. Disgusting!

  3. Karma says:

    I wonder if any of Abramovich’s other toys will fly in…

  4. Jill Brackstone says:

    So what is he doing in Bermuda?

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      Who said that the owner is here?

    • JUNK YARD DOG says:

      The trouble with some people is that they can not seem to mind their own business.

  5. Mixitup says:

    The Damn life boat looks better than my boat. lol

  6. Ruthless says:

    Nearly as much as our national debt sitting on Front Street. Must be nice! Maybe gov should ask him where should we invest our money.

    • justin says:

      Yup, we have nothing to show for our $1.5bn. At least he does!

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      Sort of puts what the debt is into persective inna.

  7. Tourism Advocate says:

    Under the yacht’s name on the back it says Hamilton. And she flew a Bermuda flag as she docked yesterday. Does this mean the Eclipse is on Bermuda’s Registry of Ships? Was this the case the last time Eclipse visited?

  8. Triangle Drifter says:

    Very pretty. Escellent pics BTW.

    He can keep it. It can’t go places that mine can, like through Somerset Bridge & in & around the reefs at the West End.

    Nope. I am very happy with my much more modest boat.

  9. Muff diver says:

    It is registered in Bermuda.
    Imagine if the owners of Man Utd bought a motor yacht,it would be much bigger and better!

  10. campervan says:

    lLving high on all the money he siphoned out of his homeland. Now who else has done that?

  11. Takbir Karriem Sharrieff says:

    What would be wonderful for the public is for a complete 3 part movie to be shown over 3 days while the ship is in port at number 6 Shed the movie can show the entire ship interior as a simulated tour….!.There should be tickets sold for those who can afford it ….School children could be free…as well as some seniors citizens… …ny proceeds left over can be donated to charity……Donations can also be paid out to charities from some of our more wealthy…citizens Everybody then benefits and then this avoids the overly curious visitors going on board what is a fantastically luxurious vessel..!The rich and the altruistic can then participate and get good feelings from sharing their wealth…….win …win ….situation..!

  12. watching says:

    Wow!

  13. INCREDIBLE PICTURES! Thanks for sharing :)
