    This was the sight that greeted Cornish locals when Russian billionaire banker Alexander Svetakov docked his 235ft-long superyacht at Falmouth. 

    The 2,293-ton £90m Cloudbreak, which boasts six staterooms, a helipad and an outdoor pool, dwarfed the surrounding boats as it entered into the harbour today. 

    The ship arrived with a complement of crew early this morning, and members of staff were seen loading and unloading the yacht for hours.

    Cloudbreak: German-built superyacht with six staterooms, a helipad and a pool… and it’s all yours for £671,887 per week

    Named after a famous surfing reef in the South Pacific, Cloudbreak was build by the German shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen in 2016. 

    It sleeps up to 12 guests in six staterooms, including a master suite, three double cabins and two twin cabins, with further (less luxurious) space for 22 crew. 

    It was designed by Espen Øino, a world recognized designer and naval architect who is behind some of the most iconic superyachts. Christian Liaigre, a French interior designer and architect, is responsible for the sumptuous and striking interior.  

    Steps on the back deck lead up to generously-sized helipad, outdoor pool and two large terraces for alfresco dining with panoramic views over the sea.   

    There is also an onboard garage housing two large tenders plus a large range of inflatables. Guests can also take part in ‘heliskiing’ – which is similar to waterskiing but uses a helicopter rather than a boat.  

    The 237ft wonder is built with anchor stabilisers that ensure a smooth ride even in rough and choppy waters, and is advertised as being a ‘modern day explorer that can go anywhere’. 

    It is available to rent for £671,887 per week, according to Superyachts Monaco Worldwide.

    Outside, Cloudbreak looks like something a Bond villain would live in – with metallic greys next to striking whites.

    Inside, the yacht is opulent with cream furniture, floor to ceiling windows, a massive corner sofa – and a 98.5” TV.

    Cloudbreak also has a massage room and a large number of staff, who are currently only allowed off the boat to exercise.

    The boat is powered by two Caterpillar marine engines which bring the luxury yacht up to a maximum speed of 15 knots (17mph). 

    Cloudbreak has a cruising speed of 12 knots. 

    Named after the Fijian surfing reef, as Svetakov is fond of surfing, Cloudbreak has a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure.

    Alexander Svetakov, 52, is the founder of the Absolut Investment Group and Absolut Bank, the latter of which he sold in 2007 for £760m

    Now, Svetakov is worth around £1.82bn, according to Forbes, has three children, and one ex-wife – Yulia Svetakova.

    Alongside Cloudbreaker, Svetakov owns two private jets – a Bombardier Global 5000 and a Bombardier Challenger 500.

    He also owns a Bell 429 helicopter which can be seen on the back of Cloudbreaker, where it is permanently based as Svetakov likes to heli-ski.

    Compared to many, its interiors - including this spacious dining area - are more refined and minimalist than over-the-top opulent
