Motor yacht Ecstasea was built for Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. The yacht Ecstasea is one of the fastest large yachts around, as she is powered by 4 MTU engines and a General Electric LM 2500 gas turbine, which brings her total power to 43,000 hp. Her maximum speed is 35 knots. At the time of built (2004) she was the largest Feadship ever, with a length of 86 meters (282 ft). She can accommodate 2 helicopters; one of the aft deck and one in and enclosed hangar on the fore deck. Ecstasea has a lot of toys on board: a 9.5m Vikal Limousine tender, a 9.0m Scorpion Sports Rib, a 6.0m Pascoe rib, 6 x Sea-
Ordered by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, Ecstasea was built in 2004 as the largest Feadship ever built. The yacht was built in the shipyard of Royal Van Lent and has length of 85.95 metres (282.0 ft), and a beam of 11.50 metres (37.7 ft), resulting in a deadweight of 585 metric tons. The yacht is made of all steel, and is much closer to a luxury ship, than to a yacht.
Her exterior design was created by the teamwork of Terence Disdale and De Voogt Naval Architects, with Disdale also responsible for the yacht’s Asian-style interior. David Waite-Wright, who was Senior Designer at Disdales, oversaw the project. The yacht later went on to win multiple interior design awards. She has capacity for 14 passengers, who are divided into 6 separate rooms.
The yacht has four main MTU engines with a combined power of 12,444 hp. The builder also installed a General Electric LM2500 gas turbine on board, which produces 30,843 hp. The total combined horsepower of 43,287 hp allows the yacht to reach a maximum speed of more than 30 knots. The maximum speed with only the diesel engines working is 25 knots. The cruising speed (diesel only) is 22 knots.
