Roman Abramovich’s superyacht Eclipse was spotted off Scotland last week, a day before the Russian oligarch was photographed enjoying a superyacht vacation in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland.
Superyachts don’t often visit Scotland’s craggy southwest coast, but this underrated cruising ground holds some undiscovered gems. This four-day itinerary follows in the footsteps of Abramovich’s visit to Scotland on Eclipse, the second largest yacht in the world, to give you a taste of what the Firth of Clyde and Inner Hebrides has to offer.
Day one: Meet the yacht in Greenock
Make like Abramovich and meet your luxury yacht off Greenock, where Eclipse was first spotted. This anchorage is perfect for large yachts since it’s in the Firth of Clyde – the largest and deepest coastal stretch of water in the British Isles – and just a short helicopter ride from the private jet terminal at Glasgow airport.
There’s not a huge amount to do in Greenock, so make the most of your luxury yacht and relax after the journey whilst you cruise to the first Scottish island on this itinerary – the Isle of Bute
