Foreign Yacht Charter Vessels Visit Moscow

Moscow, Russia

As of May, 2012, the inland waterways of Russia have lifted the restrictions on superyachts flying a foreign flag.
This means foreign-flagged megayachts, both charter vessels and private use ships, will be able to make their way to Moscow.
Yachting industry reports show 17% of the world’s largest yachts are owned by Russians;  however, none of these are Russian-flagged.
With these new rules in place, perhaps we will see more yachts making their way to the Russian capital…

    Putin on the Ritz…?

    I realize that Moscow is on the Volga River, which connects to the Caspian Sea, but I’m wondering how foreign vessels can reach it? Or do foreign travel companies just buy a yacht that’s already "in the system"?

    From the Caspian Sea, Gary, yachts come up the Volga then on to the Oka River and enter a tributary call the Moskva ("Moscow" in Russian) River. Alternate route is Volga to man-made Moscow Canal (which connects Volga to Moskva River). The big superyachts can’t get into the city limits because the river is only 3 inches deep. Just outside of the city, however, the water is 6 meters deep, perfect for large yachts. Yacht passengers easily travel into the city by limousine. (I imagine thoughts of hovercrafts, etc are a consideration for someday…) James Bond, anyone?
