The joke's on the insurance company and the western governments that would surely try to seize it.
These luxury yachts don't just sink in calm seas, they are scuttled. Ownership of the boat has been linked to Gennady Ayvazyan, a Russian oligarch and chairman of Russia's second largest coal exporter, estimated to be worth some $500 million.
Just a wild guess, but my hunch is that Gennady figured it's a lot easier to escape with the insurance payout than the yacht.
