The 142-metre luxury yacht Nord, owned by Russia’s richest man, mining billionaire Alexei Mordashov, is sheltering in the cruise ship dock in the Port of Cartagena on Monday, after being caught up in strong winds.

The Nord, designed by Nuvolari Lenard, was launched in 2020. It has 7 generous decks, all interconnected and can accommodate 30 guests in 20 double cabins, all en suite.

In addition, it features a bridge deck, a large aft helicopter landing pad with collapsible side decks, providing shelter for the yacht’s helicopter that can be stowed in a retractable hangar that slides into the superstructure when not in use.

It also has a large sports and diving centre on the lower deck, an oversized swimming pool on the main deck, and a fleet of custom boats for the use of it’s guests.

In 2001 owner Alexei Mordashov studied at Northumbria University in Newcastle upon Tyne from where he gained an MBA.
