As of today, the inland waterways of the Russian Federation have opened up to superyachts, flying a foreign flag. This means that for the first time in history, foreign flagged superyachts will, in theory, be able to make their way to Moscow.
So far, we have only seen a couple of locally built superyachts in Moscow. According to last year’s SuperYachting Index, a co-publication between SuperYachtTimes.com, and Camper & Nicholsons International, 17% of the world’s largest yachts are owned by Russians. However, according to our information, none of these are Russian flagged.
With these new regulations, perhaps we will see more yachts making their way to the Russian capital.
