The garage is filled with water toys and tenders, diving equipment, sea bobs, and wave runners. The SAINT NICOLAS yacht has never been chartered, and she has had the same captain since 2008.


Featuring a steel hull and teak decks, the exterior of the SAINT NICOLAS was designed by Espen Oeino, a Monaco-based design firm.

She has an annual running cost of $4 – $7 million per year. The SAINT NICOLAS yacht has a Lloyd’s Register classification.

Owner – Vasily Anisimov

The owner of the SAINT NICOLAS is reportedly Vasily Anisimov, a Russian billionaire businessman.

According to Forbes, he has a net worth of $1.7 billion, thanks to his wide array of ventures into aluminum, real estate, and vodka production, and his serving as president of the Russian Judo Federation.

His real estate and development company, Coalco, owns 37,000 acres of land near Moscow. A high-end village called Akulinino is on the land, where friends of President Vladimir Putin have houses.

During the golden age of yacht flipping, entrepreneurs would commission superyachts and sell the boat once the project was completed. Lurssen built three yachts for Halle, the Poise in 2006, and two sister ships in 2008.

They were named Project Nemo and Shark. Halle kept Project Shark for himself, and the other was sold to Vasily Anisimov. He renamed her SAINT NICOLAS.
