Considered to be among the world’s richest men, Vlad is reported to be worth £160bn.

And, according to investigators at the Dossier Centre, two more vessels have been added to the Russian President’s collection bringing his fleet to ten yachts.


Most recently the dictator added to his collection a 223ft vessel, named Victoria.

The £40million ship which features a huge circular bed with a ceiling mirror is a favourite of Vlad’s partner Alina Kabaeva, 40. 

Usually docked in Sochi on the Black Sea, the glamorous ship features wooden flooring and high round ceilings.

The ship can carry 28 people but usually operates with just six passengers and a crew of up to 15.

It also features a dance floor which lowers and turns into a pool -almost identical to the one onboard the Scheherazade.
