A Look at Axioma, Russian Billionaire Dmitry Pumpyansky’s $75M Megayacht

Axioma, the Dunya-built superyacht of Dmitri Pumpyansky, is, apparently, a 238-foot auction-item-to-be. The $75 million craft, which was seized in Gibraltar in March after Pumpyansky was named as one of a number of sanctioned Russian oligarchs, will go under the gavel courtesy of the Gibraltar Supreme Court.

Sporting a soft blue hull and white superstructure, Axioma cuts a fine figure. Powered by a pair of Caterpillar diesel engines, the yacht can reach a top speed of 18 knots. She has a range of 5,000 nautical miles  and was launched in 2013. Axioma’s hull is steel, and she has an aluminum superstructure; decking is teak.

Axioma’s interior design is the work of Alberto Pinto. Her common areas include a two-level main salon with a mezzanine gallery. At least three of her guest staterooms — she sleeps 10 guests across her five guest cabins — are designed in a cottage style, with each room showing off an individual color theme; the foundation is the checker/chessboard pattern that is the motif of the design concept. A larger VIP suite on board plots its own design course.

The owner’s stateroom is incorporated into a private upper deck. Designed in a more formal style, it features a backlit tray ceiling, dark hardwood trim, and silk-wrapped headboard. Other amenities onboard Axioma include an 8-person 3D theater, an infinity-edge pool, an open-air gym with massage and steam rooms, and a Jacuzzi lounge. Her toys and tenders kit includes a 25-foot jet boat, paddleboards, and snorkeling and diving equipment.

Russia’s oil and gas has to flow through pipes, and Pumpyansky had, until recently, been the man who made that possible. He was the owner of TMK, a leading manufacturer and supplier of steel pipes with production sites all over the world—many of them in the U.S. He resigned from the company’s board of directors as soon as the Ukraine invasion started.

Pumpyansky’s net worth is north of $2 billion, according to Forbes.
