Maurice Dabbah Net Worth: Maurice Dabbah may have a pint-size but he’s got a fantastic checkbook and one of the most lovely ladies in the world by his side. Multi-millionaire Swiss businessman Victoria Silvstedt, whose girlfriend is former Playboy playmate Victoria Silvstedt, has just paid $2 million for the 26.9-hectare Mataka Station on the Purus Peninsula in the Bay of Islands, northwest of Kerikeri.
Dabbah is frequently pictured with Silvstedt, a Swedish beauty queen named Hugh Hefner’s 1997 Playmate of the Year, on holiday on the French Riviera. The land he bought does not have a house on it, but the purchase gives him access to 1148 ha of a fully operating farm, five beaches, a boat ramp, and a boat lodge at the station.
The Russell hideaway of the Phantom of the Opera star Michael Crawford has a $2.65m valuation, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa has property 15km from Russell on the Rawhiti Peninsula and Sky TV creator Craig Heatley owns part of Moturoa Island.
Back in the 1930s, American author and big game fisherman Zane Grey placed the area as a millionaire’s paradise on the map. A four-bedroom Russell mansion being sold by Southeby’s International Realty dwarfs the size of Dabbah’s investment. It comes with a US$37.5m price tag – a whopping $50.9m.
