Roman Abramovich: Yachtless?
Could it be true—could everyone's favorite Russian yacht owner soon have a smaller fleet? If a report from Reuters is true, then yes. Roman Abramovich is said to be giving up one of his precious floating palaces to his soon-to-be-ex-wife Irina. There's no official word on which yacht she's getting, though the rumor mill is wondering whether it's the eighth-largest yacht in the world, Pelorus. Don't shed too many tears for Abramovich, though; he's said to be the owner of the 500-odd-footer code-named Eclipse presently under construction at Blohm + Voss in Germany. (You can read all about the speculation over that project here.)
