Little more than 6 months after finally having taken delivery of Eclipse, the world’s largest yacht, Roman Abramovich is now already offering it up for charter at an absolutely staggering rate of $2 million (£1.24m) per week.

The 538-ft (162m) Blohm + Voss built super-yacht is currently available to charter through ultra-exclusive brokerage SuperYachtsMonaco, and will now be the World’s Most Expensive Yacht to charter (trumping Spielberg’s yacht by an extra $1million).

Eclipse, which has space for 30 guests and 75 crew members, reportedly features a military-grade missile defense system, armour plating, bulletproof windows, three helipads, two swimming pools and a wellness center, among other luxurious amenities, not to mention his anti-paparazzi laser shield to field-off any unwanted snooping photographers.

Its annual running costs are reputed to be around $50million (£31m) filling the fuel tank alone costs $650,000 (£403,000).

It does however almost seems a shame that Roman Abramovich himself has spent a mere few (reported) hours on board the vessel.
