Ownership Dispute Sparks High-Stakes Fight in the United States over Seized Russian Oligarch's Lavish Superyacht Amadea

A fierce legal battle has been ignited in the United States over the ownership of the opulent superyacht, Amadea, caught in the crosshairs of international sanctions targeting Russian oligarchs. With the vessel's monthly upkeep costs reaching an eye-watering $600,000, U.S. authorities are eager to auction it off, but the true owner remains hotly contested. The $300 million yacht was seized by the U.S. government in Fiji in April of 2022, amidst allegations that it belongs to wealthy Russian tycoon Suleyman Kerimov.
