For the right price, it seems you can rent just about anything – even a Russian billionaire’s 252-foot superyacht.

La Datcha, which was commissioned by banker Oleg Tinkov, was launched in July by shipbuilder Damen and is set to embark on its maiden voyage later this year. Equipped to travel to the most remote destinations like the Arctic and Antarctic, the vessel will be available for charter for roughly $US846,000 per week.

That staggering price not only gets you access to the yacht itself, but it also includes a whole host of toys like helicopters, snowmobiles, and a submarine. Plus, the superyacht comes with an assortment of resort-like amenities and a 25-person crew to run the show.

Take a closer look at La Datcha below.

La Datcha’s website says most yachts only venture to the Mediterranean or Caribbean, which make up 5% of the world’s coastlines. This yacht is for the other 95%.
