Freelance Artist? Wanted Russian Billionaire And His 98′ Yacht Stuck On Beach
Russian Billionaire Beaches Yacht
Fugitive Russian billionaire Sergey Polonsky’s 98- Azimut has been beach in Cambodia for nearly a week now. And he doesn’t seem one bit bothered by it looking at the photos.
Being accused of embezzlement of investors in Moscow, he was issued a “red notice” by Interpol and fled to Cambodia which has no extradition treaty with Russia.
Because the region in Cambodia where the yacht is beached is so small. It’s inhabitants not only do not have the required machinery to remove the yacht, the people simply do not know how to.
So Sergey Polonsky sits and waits for high tide

Us & Star: Rihanna & Leo have hooked up for years, ‘he’s the best she ever had’
Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio both partied on P. Diddy’s yacht in St. Barts over the holidays. When they got back to Los Angeles, they attended the same Playboy mansion party. There were conflicting reports, but some spies say Leo and RiRi made out and left the party together. God knows Rihanna has bad enough taste in men to make this story plausible. I’d love to see Rihanna put Leo through the wringer. His reputation with women deserves some table turning.
[From Us Weekly, print edition, February 2, 2015]
As gross as this sounds, I don’t have trouble believing that Rih and Leo habitually hook up when they’re both single. It’s probably a power thing for both of them. What I don’t believe is that Leo is amazing in bed, but that’s what Star is saying: “Their chemistry is off the charts. Rihanna loves Leo’s attitude about life, and he thinks her laid-back demeanor is irresistably sexy. She says he’s the best she ever had.” Girl, no.
Putin’s spokesman Peskov honeymoons on a yacht chartered for €385,000 per week + vat and APA – Navalny


Vladimir Putin’s press secretary’s taste for luxury is under the spotlight once again after an opposition leader claimed the Kremlin official was honeymooning on board one of the world’s most expensive yachts.

Dmitry Peskov was photographed wearing a £400,000 (euro 568,000) watch during his wedding to Tatiana Navka, a figure skater, on August 1.

Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov and his wife Tatiana Navka are spending their honeymoon accompanied by their friends at the world’s largest sailing yacht Maltese Falcon, which charter is worth 385,000 EUR per week.

Campaigners ask how Dmitry Peskov managed to hire a yacht on a declared income of £93,000 (€132,000) in 2014

A very reliable source informed the Navalny Foundation last week that presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov was spending honeymoon with Tatiana Navka off the coast of Sardinia with some of their friends with children in a chartered yacht Maltese Falcon.

Navalny claims that charter of the Maltese Falcon is worth 385,000 EUR or 26 million rubles per week. This amount does not include the cost of food and entertainment. Being an official, Peskov, who was not previously involved in any business, would have to spend his earnings for three years to pay only for seven days of his stay on board of this vessel.

Picasso painting seized from superyacht in Corsica has been returned to Spain

12 August 2015 by Sophia Heath
A Pablo Picasso painting, which was seized from a superyacht by French customs in Corsica, has now been transferred to a museum in Madrid, Spain.

The painting is considered to be a Spanish “national treasure” and is banned from leaving Spain. French customs officials confirmed that on July 31 The Head of a Young Woman painting was taken from a superyacht moored off Calvi following “an attempt to export to Switzerland”.

A team of Spanish police – accompanied by an art restorer and expert in packaging fine art – have now retrieved the painting from Corsica and brought it to the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid. The museum also houses the famous Picasso painting Guernica.

Spanish banker Jaime Botín who owns the painting also owns superyacht Adix

A museum spokesperson has said, “The painting will be stored in a warehouse of the museum until we know more about its destiny.”

Spanish banker Jaime Botín, 79, owns the painting, which is thought to be worth more than €25 million. He bought the Picasso painting in 1977.

While the name of the superyacht on which the seizure took place hasn’t been named, it’s thought to be the 65 metre sailing yacht Adix, which was in Calvi at the time.

There has been a three-year battle between Botín and the Spanish authorities as to whether the artwork, which was painted in 1906, can be taken out of Spain.

A request in 2012, via Christie’s Iberia, to move the artwork from Spain to London was turned down by Spanish culture ministry because there is “no other similar work on Spanish soil”.

Botín tried to appeal this decision claiming that as the painting was kept on board Adix, which is a British-flagged yacht moored in Valencia, that it was not technically in Spain. Botín’s lawyers also argued that the work belonged to a company registered outside of Spain, Euroshipping Charter Company LTD.

Judges turned down the appeal arguing that as per the 1982 Montego Bay Convention “the existence of a ship in a Spanish port, except in the case of military vessels, is subject to Spanish law”.
