The yacht with her elegant unique color, which can change in the sun, was bought by Leonid Mikhelson. According to Forbes, he is the third richest person in Russia with a net worth of $17.1 billIon. However, the owner of Pacific was the richest Russian in 2016.
Mikhelson owes his wealth to stakes in natural gas producer Novatek and petrochemical company Sibur. The Russian billionaire is known as an art collector and he named a foundation after his daughter Viktoria. It is called the V-A-C foundation.
The last years Pacific has been all around the world: she has been spotted in Australia, Indonesia, in Florida and across the Caribbean, Pacific, and Mediterranean seas.
