Russian dollar billionaire Yury Shefler has chartered TIS, one of the most expensive yachts in the world. It was built and launched in 2019 at the shipyard Lurssen.
Photos from the board of this work of art have been posted on Instagram by the wife of the businessman Tatyana Kovylina for several days. The yacht is estimated at $ 250-300 million. According to the portal superyachtfan.com, the likely owner of the yacht is the Russian businessman Alexei Fedorychev living in Monaco. He is also a co-owner of the group of stevedoring companies TIS, operating in the Ukrainian port Yuzhny.
TIS is currently on sale for $275 million.
Shefler, who owns the Stolichnaya brand abroad, left Russia in 2002 after a criminal case was initiated against him about the illegal use of the trademarks of the vodka products Limonnaya, Sibirskaya and Russkaya.
In April 2018, the case was dismissed, it was closed due to the economic amnesty announced in 2013.
The US Treasury included Shefler on the list of high-ranking Russian officials and oligarchs close to the Kremlin in the same year.
