Superyacht Barbara – Photo: Yacht Harbour
The 88.5-metre superyacht Barbara built by Dutch yard Oceanco in 2017, has been captured in the waters of Monaco last week. The vessel is rumoured to belong to a Russian billionaire and the president of the world’s largest producer of refined nickel, Norilsk Nickel, Vladimir Potanin. Still, Barbara has been listed for sale via Fraser since August 2018, asking $ 165,000,000.
Barbara is trademarked with clear and simple exteriors and interiors by Sam Sorgiovanni Designs, granting her the Best Interior Design 2018 award (BI Design & Innovation Awards). Architecture was supervised by Azure Yacht Design and Naval Architecture.
For Barbara, the owner wanted to create his own custom plan of the layout, not based on any existing platform. The bridge, plus several crew cabins are on the same deck as the superyacht office with 3.5-metre high ceilings and the upper saloon, but are completely separate.
