Roman Abramovich's Yacht the Eclipse is in Simpson Bay.
Here is a photo of it today ironically eclipsing a cruise ship behind it.

Since they are sanctioning Putin and Abramovich is his close ally- can we expropriate the Yacht? Just for a few days… Asking for a friend….

He avoided the sanctions. From USA Today
"One high-profile Russian oligarch who once again escaped U.S. sanctions this week was Roman Abramovich, owner of the renowned London-based Chelsea soccer team and two superyachts that are each much longer than an NFL football field. A billionaire businessman with a wide portfolio of holdings in Russia and globally, Abramovich is described as being “one of the key enablers and beneficiaries of the Kremlin’s kleptocracy, with significant ties to, and assets in the West," by an anti-corruption foundation founded by imprisoned opposition leader Alexei Navalny. "

OK, this topic is going seriously toward political discussions, which are not allowed here..

Sorry. Not intended to be political. Just informative of yacht ownership.

Yet, the comments went seriously political. I think it would be better to just end this one here.
