Goldman Sachs sells Usmanov’s boat for half of its initial cost
Natita

The buyer’s name is not mentioned; it is known only that he lives in Malta.

A buyer for Natita boat, taken by the US bank Goldman Sachs as debt from American oil tycoon William Kallop in August, has been found, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Earlier, the boat had been owned by Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov, who sold it to Kallop for $59.9 million in 2010.

The yacht seized from Kallop for debts has been sold by the bank for much less than its initial price, namely, for $27.5 million. However, this money will cover almost all of Kallop's loan indebtedness to Goldman Sachs ($28 million). The bank has incurred expenses for the boat maintenance, which, taking into account the purchase of fuel, amounted to $438 thousand.

The buyer’s name is not mentioned; it is known only that he lives in Malta.

Natita was built in 2005 by Oceanco shipyard in the Netherlands. The length of the yacht is 66 m, width is 12.12 m. The ship can accommodate up to 12 guests, for whom six cabins are provided. Initially, Usmanov had called the yacht in honor of his mother — Dilbar, but later it was renamed twice. In 2008, Usmanov renamed Dilbar to Ona, giving the favorite name to a new, more luxurious 110-meter yacht by Lurssen. Currently, Dilbar is a 156-meter vessel, which Lurssen delivered to Usmanov in 2016.
