Giga yacht A

by Jonathan

Giga yacht A, designed by Phillipe Starck, can currently be seen off the west coast…

Owned by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko, A cost about 150 million euros at the Blohm & Voss shipyard, Germany. She looks a lot like a submarine, measures 387 feet, with 3 pools, 1 master suite, 6 guest suites, and rooms for 42 staff. To give you a better idea of scale, the fuel tank on this thing apparently costs $1.4 million USD to fill up.

“We worked for five years to avoid any small details like that which are common in boats… to finally have a boat which looks like the computer rendering. Such a boat is the vision, the dream”.
