SUPER LUXURIOUS YACHT

A Billionaire super Yacht
M/Y “A” is a luxury motor yacht designed by Philippe Starck and Martin Francis, and constructed by Blohm + Voss at the HDW shipyard in Kiel, Germany.

It was commissioned in November 2004, and delivered in 2008 at a rumoured cost of $300 million.
With a length of 119 metres (390 ft) and displacing almost 6,000 tonnes, it is one of the largest motor yachts in the world.

Named for the first initial of its owners, Andrey and Aleksandra Melnichenko, its provocative styling has polarized opinions since its launch.

It has evoked comparisons with submarines and stealth warships, while commentators have referred to it as the “most loved and loathed ship on the sea”.
