The boat, Eclipse, a mega-yacht measuring up to 557ft, which has reportedly more than doubled in cost to £724m since it was commissioned three years ago, glided out of port in Hamburg last week on its maiden voyage. On board were 150 engineers and maritime experts who will put it through its paces over 10 days. One witness described the boat as "a great white castle on water".
The yacht - the fourth in Abramovich's private fleet - drips luxury. It boasts two helipads, two swimming pools - the larger of which doubles up as a dance floor when drained - and 6ft-wide home cinema screens in all 24 guest cabins.
The master suite features a retractable roof, allowing the Chelsea football club owner and his girlfriend, Daria Zukhova, a former model, to sleep under the stars.
Mindful of a rise in piracy on the high seas, the yacht has a hull and windows capable of withstanding a missile attack and a mini-submarine for emergencies. Once it leaves the Blohm + Voss German shipyard, it will be fitted with a missile defence system in France.
Abramovich, 42, has been making regular trips to Hamburg to oversee construction and has demanded modifications that have led to its cost rocketing from £317m.
He is due to take delivery of the yacht on December 22 - treating himself to the ultimate Christmas present.
The oligarch is then widely expected to show off his new toy at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, docking the vessel off Cape Town and flying to matches by helicopter - assuming that Russia qualifies for the tournament.

Smurfit's £45m yacht defies slump
Smurfit is selling his former boat, the 164ft Lady Ann Magee, for 16.5m. His latest purchase is another sign that the world's rich are splashing out on ever-bigger yachts.
Show Boats International reported late last year that 916 new boats over 80ft in length were ordered in 2008, an 18% increase on the previous year.|
|Crew crisis as super-yacht industry booms
|Share consolidations seem to almost always lead to weakness.
Partly due to people thinking they've made a mint and their shares have 7-bagged in a day, partly due to the longer term effect of finding you now have a piddly holding of 82 shares or so and thus sell to tidy things up.|
|Not very encouraging so far. The new website provides no information for investors and the e-mail contact address given produces the response

|I'm still a bit of novice, Is a share consoladation a good thing or a bad thing? I have shares in the company and today's price of 8pence is what about i got in at. Is it worth staying with?|
|well worth a look if you want to make money while the market is shut in the UK, works for me
|will read through the documents.. certainly, a huge growth sector, even it seems during a downturn.. interesting with the new acquisition, PMA had an opp to buy initially yacht fuel services..
|Worth waiting for.|
|I realise share price has been annihilated over the last few months, but starting to show a bit of strength now.
Difficult to put a valuation on this until you get to see how quickly t/o and profit are growing.
Investment updates have so far been very poor, but I notice the website is much improved from what it was and gives quite a lot of information.|
|Pretty disgraceful newsflow from this one. So, suck up all those PI's funds and then report.....well.....not a lot.|
|It is my intention to report on the Group's diversification and the individual
companies' activities at year-end when a more complete picture as to their
performance will emerge.
