An $81 million superyacht linked to a Russian oligarch is set to be auctioned off by the government of Antigua and Barbuda, according to multiple reports.

The Alfa Nero was ‘abandoned’ in the port of Falmouth, Antigua in February 2022, the month Russia invaded Ukraine, and risks becoming a ‘danger’ as it is not maintained, a said Information Minister Melford Nicholas.

The US Treasury Department has linked the Alfa Nero to Andrey Guryev, a Russian oligarch who the department says is a “close associate” of President Vladimir Putin. Guryev was sanctioned by the US in August, by the UK in April and by the EU in March 2022.

Guryev is one of Russia’s richest people with a net worth of $10.1 billion, according to . He founded PhosAgro, a leading Russian chemical company, by the Treasury Department.

The 81.2-meter Alfa Nero was built by Oceanco and can accommodate 12 guests in six cabins and 28 crew, according to Boat International. The yacht has a swimming pool and gym, among other amenities, according to photos released by Boat International.

The government of Antigua and Barbuda has said the Alfa Nero will be sold at auction if its owner does not claim it within 10 days of the sale notices being published in the media, according to reports.

The government of Antigua and Barbuda did not respond to Insider’s request for comment.

The Guardian reported that Guryev denied owning the Alfa Nero. Insider could not reach Guryev for comment.

The Treasury Department said in August that the Alfa Nero was Guryev’s “escrow property” and that he allegedly purchased the yacht for $120 million in 2014.

Guryev served in the Russian government until 2013, according to the Treasury Department. The UK called Guryev an “oligarch” when it sanctioned him in April.
