Incredible pictures have offered a glimpse of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’s enormous £430million superyacht.
The 460ft Solaris will boast 48 cabins, a helicopter pad, and eight decks – and should reportedly be ready for use in September.
It is currently under construction at the Lloyd Werft dockyard in Bremerhaven, Germany.
A source told The Sun: “This will be the yacht of the year when she is launched later this year.”
They added: “Details are being kept top secret but she will be a magnificent addition for the owner.

At the time, it was considered the largest private yacht in the world – although it since been surpassed by the superyacht Azzam.

It has been rumoured that the vessel has an anti-paparazzi system to help protect Abramovich’s privacy.
A laser purportedly detects the electronic light sensors that digital cameras use, before the camera is targeted with a beam of bright light.
