Russian oligarch turns heads with the 11th largest yacht in the world as he visits Dubrovnik region

By  Jun 30, 2019

The eleventh largest yacht in the world dropped anchor today in the Bay of Zupa, dominating the whole bay for miles. At an incredible 140 metres in length, or around 10 metres longer than a football pitch or around half the length of the Stradun, the super yacht carries the name Ocean Victory and was built in 2014. In fact, the mega yacht was the tenth longest yacht in the world before the launch of Redwood "Opus" this year, which by only 2 metres knocked Ocean Victory out of the top ten.

The Bay of Zupa and Cavat are certainly proving a magnet for mega yachts this summer, with one of the owners of the Mexican beer giant Corona docking in the same spot just days ago.

Accommodating 28 passengers in the height of luxury in 14 cabins and holding a sizeable crew of 56 Ocean Victory is owned by one of the richest men in the world, the Russian billionaire Viktor Rashnikov. Reported to be worth $10 billion Rashnikov (70) is the majority owner of Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works, and is the 162nd richest person on the planet. And he made a dent in his fortune with the purchase of Ocean Victory as it set him back a tidy $300 million.

And like many Russian billionaires he is close friends with Vladimir Putin, with the Russian President once describing him as “"Mr. Rashnikov is a good manager and not only because the company is developing and new technologies are being introduced, but also because a lot is being done to care for the people and to look after the environment.”
