The world’s largest expedition yacht 115m Luna has been delivered to its new owner Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich.

The Luxury expedition superyacht Luna was built in Germany by Lloyd Werft and Stahlbau Nord Shipyards and launched in late 2009, becoming the second largest yacht to be launched in 2009, after Eclipse.

Luna’s exterior styling has been done by Newcruise Design. It features two helipads facing forward and to the rear around the large communications tower.

It also holds transom doors at the sides, leading directly the yacht’s high quality tenders.

The spacious, open aft deck features a swimming pool and sunbathing areas, with a dedicated open leisure area and a beach club leading down to the swim platform.

Why does Abramovich need it along with the Eclipse? While the Eclipse is the ultimate in length and refinement, Luna is an “exploration yacht” for cruising remote areas and able to go long periods before refuelling and resupplying.

Abramovich is currently the third richest man in Russia and the 50th richest man in the world according to the 2010 Forbes list.
