Russia-linked superyachts: correction

In this week’s article entitled “Ongoing events with Russia-linked superyachts” I got my superyachts called “Solaris” confused.

Yacht Solaris (IMO 9729336, 395gt), Galleon Yachting SA, referred to in IMN and entered with the Shipowners Club, is not connected with Roman Abramovich. The yacht which was reported arriving in Bodrum, Turkey, was MY Solaris (IMO 9819820, 11,247GT), owned by Beautiful Seascapes Ltd, and believed to be linked to Roman Abramovich, is not entered with the Shipowners Club.

The “other” Solaris was in Goeck, Turkey.

Apologies for the error. The (much smaller) ship referenced in the article is Cayman Islands-flagged, whereas the ship suggested to have links with Roman Abramovich is flagged in Bermuda and is owned by Beautiful Seascapes Ltd, care of Dohle (Private Marine Clients) of Douglas, Isle Of Man.
