How to get invited on board Roman Abramovich’s superyacht Eclipse

How to get invited on board Roman Abramovich’s superyacht Eclipse

Roman Abramovich’s superyacht Eclipse is not only one of the largest yachts in the world but also one of hardest to get on board. So how do you pass the test to experience Roman Abramovich’s pride and joy? Russian rapper Timati has revealed the rules and they include promising not to break the dishes and not to bring girls onto the boat.

Timati has been relaxing on board the 162.5 metre superyacht Eclipse in San Antonio, Ibiza, just weeks after she was spotted off Greenock in Scotland. Timati posted a picture of himself swimming beside Eclipse on Instagram and used it as a chance to thank Roman Abramovich for the use of the superyacht.

He wrote: “Dear Roman Abramovich, thank you for your trust. Not every tycoon can just leave his world's most expensive boat for a couple of days at the disposal of the novice rapper. I'm glad you chose me, not some Kanye or Jay-Z. I promise not to break the dishes, not to swear, and not to bring girls onto the boat.”

So just who is this rapper that has been trusted with superyacht Eclipse?

Timati, whose real name is Timur Yunusov, is a 31-year-old rapper who is passionately pro-Vladimir Putin. Reportedly admired for his patriotism by the Kremlin, Timati also has a one-year-old daughter with model and Miss Russia runner-up Alena Shishkova.

However, if you are not going out with a Russian beauty queen and don’t think you keep Timati’s promises don’t panic, there are plenty of other superyachts to charter in the sea….
