Oleg Tinkov, a banker from Russia, who is also a billionaire has a net worth that is estimated at about $2.3 billion. He has now decided that he wants a private yacht that is going to be 77 meters long. This yacht will be an icebreaker and it’s called La Datcha. It will be the first private luxury ice breaker that will have the capability to explore amazing destinations. The yacht is supposed to be delivered at the end of 2020. It is currently being built in the Netherlands as part of the Damen’s SeaXplorer.
This amazing yacht is being created as a part of the banker’s lux project called La Datcha, that was made out of a couple of holiday hikes in luxury deistinations. Tinkov has said for Forbes that it will be possible to charter in the yacht. The price for it will be around € 690,000,000 by week. Oleg Tinkov himself will spend about 20 weeks a year on it as well.
Because of the large number of storage spaces, a huge range of equipment and tenders can be kept on-board, including 1 submarine, 1 VIP tender/rescue boat, 2 helicopters, 1 dive support tender, 4 wave runners, 1 beach lander tender, 2 expedition ribs, and 2 snow scooters.
The interior design of the yacht was done by Damen and Amels, and it will feature full height windows, an observation lounge, the main saloon, a resident suite, and an observation deck. The yacht will also have Jacuzzis with hot water, one that will be inside, and one outside, a steam bath and a sauna. A massage room as well as a gym.
The La Datcha will have 6 cabins available for guests, plus 2 master suites and 2 made for VIPs, there is room for 12 guests and a 25 person crew. Every room will feature a private bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe.
The plan is for Tinkov to exhibit the yacht at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2020. And following that he will go on the tour on which he will visit the Seychelles, Madagascar and after that Makchatka and Kuril Islands.
Tinkov has said that there are already people interested in renting the vessel. He has also said Bill Gates is interested in it as well.
