The graceful Dilbar bears a striking resemblance, at least in terms of exterior styling, to Pelorus, and that’s no coincidence. Dilbar’s exterior designer Tim Heywood also styled Pelorus. Paris-based Alberto Pinto is credited with the interior. If a motoryacht of this size can be considered environmentally friendly, this is it. The yacht has particle filters for soot removal and efficient diesel-electric propulsion. The yacht’s owner is likely to be metals magnate Alisher Usmanov, who named his previous yacht, the 2005 Oceanco Dilbar, after his mother. Forbes gave the no. 1 spot on Russia’s rich list to Usmanov, owner of Russia’s largest newspaper Kommersant, but what makes him a man to watch are his stakes in Facebook, soon to go public. He also owns iron ore and steel producer Metalloinvest and his net worth is estimated at 18.1 billion in 2012. Like Abramovich, Usmanov also has growing stakes in a British soccer team—Arsenal. Dilbar is a frequent sight along Antibes’ Quai des Billionaires. She has a graceful and sprawling aft deck with a sweep of staircases leading to the main deck.
