What It Costs To Run The World’s Largest Superyacht!

Buying a superyacht is an expensive adventure. But maintaining a yacht is even more expensive. The Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov owns the largest superyacht in the world, Dilbar. The 512ft superyacht is said to cost up to $80M to run every year. One fuel costs as much as four supercars. Allegedly a 500,000-litre refuel would cost nearly $800,000.

Dilbar is a super-yacht launched on 14 November 2015 at the German Lürssen shipyard and delivered in 2016. As of 2020, Dilbar is the sixth-longest yacht in the world. The ship is registered in the Cayman Islands. At 15,917 gross tonnage (GT), it is the third-largest yacht by volume, after Fulk Al Salamah and REV Ocean.

The super-secretive superyacht’s price is estimated between $810M to $1B. As reported by Bloomberg Billionaires Index in 2021, Alisher Usmanov has an estimated net worth of $17.9B. He built his wealth through metal and mining operations, and investments, and is the majority shareholder of Metalloinvest, a Russian industrial conglomerate.

According to ICIJ, Usmanov has for decades invested heavily in tech firms in Russia and elsewhere while keeping close connections to the Russian political elite.
