Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is preparing to welcome a new addition to his yacht collection and the new model is once again a sight to behold

The Russian is famous for his travels on his picture-perfect yachts, but he clearly feels he’s in for an upgrade that will inject nearly half a billion on a new, purpose-built model

The 460ft Solaris is equipped with a swimming pool and a helicopter landing pad and is about to be completed at a German shipyard, as The Sun reports

The ship has no less than eight decks with 48 cabins for 36 guests and 60 crew members. It is the seventh super yacht that Abramovich has owned

The Chelsea owner also has the Eclipse and five other yachts including the 162-foot Sussurro, the 282-foot Ecstasea, the Luna and Pelorus, 377-foot each and the 371-foot Grand Bleu / p>

Abramovich’s current yacht is actually a bit bigger with the Eclipse at 533 feet, but the new model has a lot going for it, including two high-tech Azipod engines that offer great maneuverability and remove any rudder

The ship is currently being built at a shipyard in Bremen and is about to be tested before it is handed over to Abramovich for summer trips

A source told The Sun, “This will be the yacht of the year when it launches later this year”

The Solaris is expected to have an outdoor beach club, hot tub and spa, and swimming pool It’s still a little cheaper than the £ 540 million Eclipse he currently owns, however

The Eclipse reportedly came with a missile defense system as well as bulletproof glass around Abramovich’s sleeping quartets, but it’s not clear whether the new model will include these features

The source added, “Details are kept top secret, but she will be a great addition to the owner

“To give you an idea of ​​the size of Solaris, the yacht shed it is built in is larger and taller than Buckingham Palace so you have an idea of ​​the dimensions'”
