She is one of the finest luxury yachts: the ‘Faye’. According to the British government, the ship is owned by a Russian businessman – he can no longer enjoy the yacht for the time being.
British authorities have arrested a super yacht. This is the luxury ship “Fi”, which is valued at 45 million euros. It is not officially known who owns the magnificent yacht. According to the British government, he is a Russian businessman – but the property was hidden very well on purpose. This step is considered a “clear and strong warning to Putin and his comrades,” according to the Ministry of Transport.
After the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces, the United Kingdom imposed a series of sanctions, including on the oligarchs.
The 58.5-meter yacht has been booked in the former London port area, Canary Wharf. She was in the British capital for the Superyacht Awards, and is reportedly leaving British waters today. But this does not happen anymore. “The arrest shows that we are able and willing to take the toughest action against those who profit from Putin’s corrupt regime,” Transportation Secretary Grant Shapps said. His department worked with British law enforcement agencies to seize the ship.
Phi is a letter from the Greek alphabet and in mathematics symbolizes the golden ratio, among other things. The ship was built at a shipyard in the Netherlands and made its maiden voyage last year. It is designed for eleven crew members and up to twelve passengers. Among other things, the ship is equipped with an “inexhaustible” wine cellar and a freshwater pool.
The ship is registered in the Caribbean island nation. Sailing under the flag of Malta. According to the British government, it is in the process of tracking down other ships owned by the Russians.
