The yacht had departed the Aegean town of Marmaris on March 24 and had started to sail towards Istanbul.
Fleeing sanctions, Russian President Vladimir Putin's inner circle seeks safe ports for their superyachts. Earlier this week, oligarch Roman Abramovich's yacht “Eclipse” docked in Marmaris and “Solaris” in Bodrum.
