Barcelona Port Marina Yacht Dilbar

Barcelona  Marina Mega Yacht Dilbar

The old port of Barcelona has been transformed in the past years, despite opposition by many Barcelonians, in a port for mega-yachts that now abound in the Mediterranean.

These days we can see the Dilbar, Alisher Usmanov’s latest extravagance. Usmanov who is one of Russia's richest industrialists, ranked as the world's 73rd fortune, which he made in mining and investment, and is estimated at 12,000 million euros. He is also known to be the main shareholder of Arsenal FC.

The Yacht is the largest private yacht in volume, in terms of length, with its 157m, it only reaches the fourth position ...

There is little information about the interior because unlike other yachts of the same style it is not available for rental, as Usmanov uses it exclusively. It cost about 540 million euros and is supposed to have 20 cabins to accommodate 40 passengers with a crew of 80 people.

Mega-yachts are the biggest expenditure of the mega-rich and in recent years they have spent obscene amounts of money on these yachts.
