The Luxurious Private Yacht Owned By Chelsea Owner, Abramovich (Photos)

The Luxurious Private Yacht Owned By Chelsea Owner, Abramovich (Photos)

Russian billionaire and owner of Chelsea FC, Roman Abramovich is the proud owner of Eclipse, a super-yacht which comes with two swimming pools and a missile-defence system.

Abramovich is currently domiciled in Israel and hasn’t been able to watch his Premier League club play since the start of this season due to visa issues. The British government failed to renew his papers in May.

Seven of his properties in the UK remain unoccupied, including two houses in Lowndes Square, Belgravia, together worth more than £150 million.

The Chelsea owner, however, spends most of his time in his most lavish and extravagant residence the ‘super-yacht Eclipse’ which cost about KSh38 billion as at 2010 when he bought it.

He spends close to KSh130 billion overall in upgrades and maintenance for the yacht (533ft) which is more than twice the size of the pitch at Stamford Bridge. It was the biggest yacht around when he bought it.

Eclipse has nine decks with two helipads and a garage. On the eighth deck is a swimming pool and a sundeck. Each cabin in the yacht come with a private 6ft home cinema screen, a Jacuzzi, spa and specialised security systems.

The Eclipse also has a huge gym and spa area with a beauty salon, sauna and massage room. Lower decks contain the suites and cabins that can house 32 guests and 100 crew.

Designer Terry Disdale remembers the day his amazing creation was launched:

“Although you design every part of it and you see it being built, nothing prepares you for the feeling you get when you actually see it in the flesh.”

“The tug pulled it out and there was the thickness of a mattress between the wing stations and the shed walls.

“Literally they tied mattresses to the stations. When it appeared I was gobsmacked.”

After the race, Hamilton said: “It is a very strange feeling right now. This was won through a lot of hard work through a lot of races. I am so grateful for all the hard work, for everyone who has been a part of it.

“To complete this, when Fangio has done it with Mercedes, it is an incredible moment.

“It was a horrible race. I got a great start and was working my way up and I really don’t know what happened after that. I was just trying to hold on and bring the car home.”

The Mercedes driver is now the only third man in history to win five world titles. He is now joint holder with Argentine legend Juan Manuel Fangio and is two behind all-time record holder Michael Schumacher.

Wizkid Apologises For Performing In Slippers At Glo Concert

Nigerian superstar musician, Wizkid, wrapped up performances for the Glo Mega concert in Accra on Saturday night in a rather casual fashion.

He came on stage in a black hoodie over a pair of jeans. Underneath it was his pair of slippers over a pair of his socks.

However, minutes into his performance, he paused to render an apology to the fans and respectable people in the audience, asking them to forgive him for wearing a pair of slippers on stage.

He explained he meant no disrespect; rather it was because he arrived in Ghana an hour to his performance. That, he revealed, prevented him from wearing something else.

“Ghana… I like to take this opportunity to apologise for performing in slippers,” he added briefly.
