The Philippe Starck megayacht “A” is one vessel that is sure to hold the title of the most luxurious yacht ever. This $300 million super-yacht was built for a Russian oligarch, Andrey Melnichenko, 37, who is worth $9.2 billion and was ranked 172 on the Forbes list of the world’s richest people. There is a large master suite as well as six luxury cabins for up to 14 guests and enough room for 42 crew members. The 394-ft long superyacht has a glass roof which is situated directly under the swimming pool. The ships main stairwell is lined with scalloped silver leaf. Other details of the interior have been kept strictly secret by its German boat builders Blohm and Voss.
This luxury megayacht is well-known from the outside, but the inside’s been somewhat of a mystery. But it is rumoured to have a helicopter hangar, as well as two 30ft speed boats kept in hatches on both sides of the hull. Don’t believe us? Just have a look at this in depth video tour of the megayacht taken by Andrey Melnichenko from the Wall Stree Journal.
The video features the interior of this luxurious 394-ft vessel from it’s state of the art finger print scanner for the master suite to the luxurious hotel style dining room. The mirror-heavy “glass menagerie” bar are just one of the many luxe features of this yacht. Money was definitely no concern when it came to the interiors of this yacht. The custom banister leading to the master bedroom cost $60,000!.
Starck, known for his risque design choices has fitted the yacht with a secret nookie room as well. Of course, the usual trimmings, like helipads and boat rooms are not left out in this megayacht.
