Both yachts combined aren’t as large as the one built by the Russian billionaire owner of the Chelsea soccer team. Roman Abramovich, who travels with a 40-strong security detail he calls “a private army,” took more than a year to build his 560-foot Eclipse, which is almost-two-football-fields massive and can’t even be docked in most marinas.
