I worked on a superyacht and its millionaire owner would throw away designer clothes after wearing them just ONCE
A SUPERYACHT worker claimed that they would wear clothes their millionaire owner wore and then binned after one use.
The worker, who wished to remain anonymous, said that the yacht owner was “much like the great tennis player Ivan Lendl, who never wears the same shirt twice”.
According to the worker, the owner “couldn’t understand the need for wardrobes in his master suite”.
The wealthy owner reportedly said: “I buy it, I wear it, and I throw it away.”
Having spent 20 years in the superyacht business, the worker told readers the crew would then get dressed in pricey designer clothes that were tossed out.
Speaking to The Times of London, they added: “It helped to explain why the gleeful crew aboard his yacht were scrubbing decks dressed in Armani cashmere jumpers.”
It comes after extravagant superyacht owners have come to the fore after Western nations sanctioned Russian oligarchs over the Ukraine war.
The sanctions seek to seize the trophy assets of oligarchs said to have ties to the Kremlin, including yachts, luxury property and private jets.
One Russian oligarch had his £450million boat seized last month after he was put on a sanctions list with Roman Abramovich.
And wealthy tycoon Alisher Usmanov saw his 500ft superyacht taken by German authorities.
However, there is a growing number of superyacht owners who have acquired their money through legitimate entrepeneurial endeavours and fund charitable work with their wealth.
The same worker also had other intriguing tales which included a crew in Australia that prepared fresh lobster for the owner every day, regardless of whether or not he was on board.
