Take a look at the interior of “A”, a 300 million dollar yacht!! The “A” yacht is designed by Philippe Starck and owned by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. 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. 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”! The interior of this yacht was a pure mystery, until this video showed up!
A is powered by two MAN RK280 diesel engines providing approximately 9,000 kW (12,000 hp), sufficient to give the yacht a maximum speed of 23 knots (43 km/h; 26 mph). At its cruising speed of 19 knots (35 km/h; 22 mph) it can cover 6,500 nautical miles (12,000 km; 7,500 mi) in under sixteen days before its 750,000 L (160,000 imp gal; 200,000 US gal) fuel tank is empty!
Mirrored surfaces feature extensively throughout the interior, along with Baccarat crystal which is used not only for the glassware and tableware, but for the furniture too. Although, leather of white stingray hides on the walls and ceilings, and crocodile-skinned furniture can be found at the main suite. Aside from the yacht itself, the two main tenders—one open and one covered—and a third sports tender have also been designed by Starck, and built by Vaudrey Miller of New Zealand. They are all 10–11 metres (33–36 ft) long, and reputedly cost $1 million each. Check it out!
