World-famous superyacht Hermitage docks at Jumeirah Vittaveli
Jumeirah Vittaveli in the Maldives has once again been the destination of choice for a world-famous superyacht.
Hermitage, which belongs to Azerbaijani business tycoon Anatoly Sedhyk, was seen anchored off Jumeirah Vittaveli on January 7.
The 223ft custom motor yacht was built by Lurssen in Germany at their Rendsburg shipyard and delivered to Sedhyk in 2011 for a reported price of USD 100 million.
Hermitage’s interior configuration has been designed to comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests overnight in six cabins. She is also capable of carrying up to 18 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience.
The external appearance features a white on black paint scheme where the black masks most of the windows on the superstructure and covers the main mast as well. There is tender space in aft garages likely served by twin hatch doors. A large pool is located on the sundeck, forward of the main mast while there is a jacuzzi forward, over looking the bow on the upper deck.
Sedykh is the co-founder of the the United Metallurgical Company (known as UMC or OMK), which is one of Russia’s largest producers of pipes, railway wheels and other steel products for energy, transport and industrial companies. With an estimated net worth of USD 1 billion, Sedykh also owns a Bombardier BD-700-1A11 Global 5000 private jet.
