LUXURY LAUNCHES – Antigua has tried every trick in the book to get rid of AlfaNero, but destiny seems to be churning its own path.
Attorney Dr. David Dorsett has confirmed that the appeal of his client Yulia Guryeva-Motlokhov, the daughter of sanctioned Russian oligarch Andrey Guryev, has been filed in the High Court to stop the completion of the sale of the Alfa Nero.
She claimed to be the sole beneficiary of a trust that is the 100 percent shareholder of Flying Dutchman Limited, which owns the $81 million superyacht.
One cannot help but wonder where the owner has been since February 2022, as the lovely boat has been abandoned ever since.
The owner didnt surface to settle fuel bills, unpaid crew bills, or even docking charges of Falmouth Harbor. Dr. Dorsett exhibited complete confidence that this latest action would favor his client.
“We would not be filing an appeal unless we had good and sound reasons to bring the appeal.
We think the action of the government in taking possession of the yacht and selling the yacht is wrong on all levels,” he said.
A determined Dorsett added, “It is not the government’s yacht; they cannot just take it up and sell it to somebody else… We just want our boat back.”
The drama has exploded since Alfa Nero’s controversial sale to Eric Schmidt.
