Apart from political issues, Russian President Vladimir Putin is a well-known figure due to the rumors about his impressive wealth and his love for luxury and very expensive products. The yacht fleet attributed to Putin includes at least three luxury yachts worth an estimated $160 million.

When it comes to luxury assets, it seems Vladimir Putin isn’t content with having one in every category. For example, while presidents of other countries routinely use one plane, according to unofficial reports, Putin can choose from at least 40.

There are claims that Vladimir Putin owns a variety of luxury cars, several helicopters and planes, an expensive watch collection, and works of art worth billions of dollars. In fact, the line between what belongs to the Russian government and what is Putin’s personal property is not so clear. According to some media, Putin has at least three expensive yachts, which we will learn more about later.

The Graceful yacht

The value of this 82-meter yacht is reported to be 100 million dollars. Graceful was built in 2013 by Sevmash in Russia and later moved to Germany and upgraded by Blohm+Voss. The interior and exterior design of this yacht was done by H2 Yacht Design.

The main duplex suite and a retractable balcony, along with two VIP suites and three guest cabins, are among the facilities of this yacht. Graceful can host 12 guests, plus crew members, and is capable of reaching a top speed of 18 knots (33 km/h).

Chayka yacht

Chika means seagull in Russian. This yacht was officially purchased in 2011 to host official meetings of Russian statesmen with other political figures. This 54 meter yacht was built in 2009 by Turquoise Yachts. At first it was called Leo Fun, then it was changed to Sirius and finally Seagull.

The exterior design of this yacht was done by Paolo Cagliari and the interior design was done by Jean-Guy Verge. The main deck has a luxurious lounge with large windows that let in plenty of natural light.

The Russian President and his guests can enjoy conversation in the yacht’s formal dining area with glass doors and an impressive skylight. Various relaxation options are also available, including a six-person Jacuzzi, a barbecue, and a spa pool with a beautiful glass waterfall.

The master bedroom has floor-to-ceiling windows and a private bathroom. Other cabins of this yacht that can host 12 guests also have special features.

Chika is capable of reaching a top speed of 18 knots (33 km/h) and has a range of 5,000 miles (8,046 km).

According to It Boat, the initial price of this yacht was somewhere between $4 million and $7 million.

The Olympia yacht

Olympia is described as Putin’s favorite yacht, with many photos of him meeting other dignitaries. The Olympia yacht is estimated to be worth between 35 and 50 million dollars.

The 57 meter long Olympia was built by the famous Dutch company Feadship in 2002. With a classic design by De Voogt Naval Architects, this is one of the most beautiful examples in the fleet of Russian presidential yachts.

The cabins of this yacht can host 10 guests, and the owner’s suite has various facilities, including a jacuzzi. Olympia can reach a top speed of 16 knots (30 km/h) and has a range of 4,700 miles (7,563 km).
