The Bermudian registered motor yacht Eclipse arrives in Bermuda waters, the yacht is owned by Russian tycoon and Chelsea football club owner Roman Abramovich, The Eclipse — the largest in the world at 557ft long is valued at $475 million The Elipse has two helicopter pads, 24 guest cabins, two swimming pools, several hot tubs and a disco hall. It is also equipped with three launch boats and a mini-submarine that is capable of submerging to 50 metres. Approximately 70 crew members are needed to operate the yacht.

Bermuda this morning welcomed the world’s largest private yacht — the Eclipse owned by Russian billionaire and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

According to Wikipedia Eclipse, which has moored in St George’s, has two helicopter pads, 24 guest cabins, two swimming pools, several hot tubs and a disco hall. It is also equipped with three launch boats and a mini-submarine that is capable of submerging to 50 metres. Approximately 70 crew members are needed to operate the yacht.

Wikipedia adds: “For security, Eclipse is fitted with intruder detection systems and a German-built missile defence system. Abramovich's master suite and the yacht's bridge are fitted with armour plating and bulletproof windows. The yacht is reportedly equipped with an anti-paparazzi shield in the form of lasers that sweep the surroundings, and when they detect a CCD, they shine a light right at the camera to prevent the photograph.

“According to The Times, these do not run all the time, so friends and guests should still be able to take pictures. Instead, they will be activated when guards spot likely professional photographers nearby. How such a system could feasibly work has not been demonstrated, however.”

The yacht's cost has been estimated at $475 million as of September 2011, but a September 2009 report indicated that final costs could approach $1.12bn.
