Dilbar Seized by the German European Union

how many of those yachts have been seized now ?   I bet it slows down once the captors get a quote from the local yard and learn what the  operations / maintenance / crew needs etc actually cost

Its not a 'yacht' it's more like 'gift that keeps on taking'.   a massive liability
Keep up the good work and seize everything they can, chain it up at a dock somewhere and let it rot.

That's the only thing they need to do.

a cost liability.   such as maintaining the big bitch.    keeping the chrome polished and the strippers fed.   finding a place to put it.   that kinda stuff.   

I got to know a couple super yacht capt's when I did some time in the BVI, and some of the numbers were staggering.     like, larger than the GDP of some of the islands that were plugged into them while they were moored

Why would they do anything but anchor it and leave it to rot?

I agree with those who say that no maintenance is neccesary after seizure, let it rot. I might even spray paint anti putin grafitti on them or fly a Ukranian flag from the mast head..

I might let the owners pay for maintenance if they can find a way to transmit payment - now there's a bitch: do you pay for maintenance on a boat that you can't use & might not get back? Hell if they don't present Putin with the bill, comrade.

I say use them for Black Sea R&R tours for the Ukraine vets & their families until they run out of fuel and/or break, then scuttle somewhere strategically advantageous, perhaps in the narrow strait between the Sea of Azov and the Black Sea.

Anyone got a link to how they can take these vessels,  if they can take that boat then why not some working stiff Russian who lives in the EU, their house, car or bank account? The only reason seems to be Russian rich guy bad.

The Super Series may have to change its accent a little.
They posted over the weekend saying that until further notice they won't be allowing any Russian or Belarusian sailors, shore crew or officials. 

RC 44’s, Club Swan36/50, and especially Melges 20 in Monaco too. 
Nothing from any of these fleets yet - will be interesting to see if they follow the 52s. The 44s probably have the biggest Russian involvement with 2 flagged boats and at least one more owner.

I don’t expect the 44’s to say anything. They really try to keep a low profile overall.  Sort of an honor among thieves code.

Same with Swan. 
 

Ultimately a Russian trying to get anywhere these days is going to have trouble if their plane is Russian flagged. 
 

I’m really glad Russians have been banned from everything. Its going to be a long time before we see them again, and they won’t be missed. Bunch of unsavory assholes.
