Putin’s $700 Million Dollar Yacht Sezied
The owner of the Scheherazade superyacht has recently been identified as Russia’s President Vladamir Putin. His name has been in the news nonstop since the war on Ukraine began abruptly on February 24th. Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky pleaded with Italian authorities to seize Putin’s assets, citing the vessel’s recent visit to Italy. Putin’s yacht is currently being investigated by authorities for possible Russian ties.
Let’s take a look at the boat’s unique features and multi-purpose capabilities…

This yacht is massive, even larger than Jeff Besos‘. There is a 16-foot aquarium on the inside because, of course, when you’re near the water, you want to watch fish. Because the pool table is self-leveling, guests may enjoy a fun game of pool even in rough waters. The attention to detail on this yacht is astounding, especially the tile dance floor that changes into a pool. Each bathroom onboard has gold faucets and toilet paper holders. A judo studio decked out with black belts and images showcasing the politician’s wealth adds a personal touch.
Is Putin’s yacht multipurpose?
We regret to inform you that this boat serves as more than just party entertainment. It has the ability to turn into a battleship at will and is outfitted with cutting-edge security technologies. Inside sources claim that this device is capable of shooting down drones. Why would it be necessary for this yacht to also function as a weapon?
Unfortunately for Putin, his boat is currently docked in an Italian port, where police have seized it for further examination.
