A $436 million superyacht at the center of one of the world’s costliest divorce battles has been released by a Dubai court.
The superyacht belonging to a Russian billionaire had been impounded for a year.
The superyacht, Luna, has nine decks, space for 50 crew, two helipads, a vast swimming pool and a mini submarine.
The Dubai court of appeal ruled that the Dubai lower courts’ order to impound the yacht was wrong, allowing it to leave the port.
Akhmedov says that he and his wife divorced in Russia in 2000.
In 2012 she tried to divorce him in British courts.
London’s High Court had ordered oil and gas tycoon Farkhad Akhmedov to pay about 40 percent of his fortune to his former wife Tatiana Akhmedova in 2016.
Akhmedov failed to pay the 453 million pound ($594 million).
The London court granted a worldwide freezing order, under which Akhmedov’s superyacht M.V. Luna was impounded in Dubai.
