Roman Abramovich ranked number 15 on the World’s Billionaires list for 2008. This year, Abramovich bought Britain’s leading football club, Chelsea, for more then $300 million. Along with the British soccer team, the billionaire recently added a six-story house in London’s Eaton Square, part of the estate of the Duke of Westminster, which is said to be worth more than $46 million. His portfolio of property also contains homes in West Sussex, Moscow and St. Tropez on the French Riviera. Abramovich’s custom-made 300-foot yacht, Le Grand Bleu, which is worth $90 million, features a helicopter and two hovercraft launch pads. Le Grand Bleu was christened in Rio de Janeiro and has its home port in Bermuda.
Now Abramovich is leading a syndicate of Russian tycoons to buy Tassignano airport in northern Italy, for investment purposes. The airport which is worth more than 4 million GBP is near encampment of exclusive villas and vacation homes. Maybe Tassignano airport will make a nice investment but more likely it will make for a very exclusive get-a-way destination for Roman Abramovich and his friends.
