by Roman on April 20, 2010
Over the years there have been many who search for the most expensive mega yacht in the world. If you are 1 of them then I have good news – you can stop searching.
The most expensive yacht in the world is called “A”
Forget about the silly and luxurious names that all the vessels that have ever been considered as the most expensive yachts in the world have had.
The newest most expensive yacht in the world is simply called A. Yes, it is A – just the letter A. Nothing more since only the letter A can represent how luxurious, expensive and extraordinary the yacht is. The most expensive yacht doesn’t need a real name. After seeing the yacht there should be no doubt in your mind that it is the best in the world.
Most Expensive Yacht in the World Costs 350 million dollars
That’s right! The most expensive yacht in the world costs 350 million dollars (260 million euros). It is designed by the world wide renowned designer Philippe Starck.
Haven’t heard of him? That’s OK. All you really need to know is that he is the guy who does interior design for the French president and that he single-handedly designed the Eurostar trains that connect France to England.
Mr. Stark also single-handedly designed the most expensive and luxurious yacht in the world. This is the first time anyone is allowed to take a look inside the A. Check out the video below:
While not the largest yacht in the world, the 121 meter(398 feet) A is so over-packed with luxury in the inside that this makes it the most expensive yacht ever built.
To get a grasp how enormous the yacht is you should know that the fuel tank fits 757 000 litres (197 000 gallons) and just to fill it once takes about 1.4 million dollars. For that you will get 15 days of cruising until you need to refuel.
A also has an owner’s suite, 6 suites for guests and accommodations for 42 staff workers. In addition there is room for 5 personal servants for guests.
The owner of the most expensive yacht is Russian Billionaire Andrey Melnichenko
The owner of A is Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. In addition to owning the worlds most expensive yacht, he is also known for building and developing some of the most successful energy and banking companies in Russia.
Design of the most expensive yacht in the world
The design of A is something that is heavily debated over. Some think that the expensive yacht is one of the ugliest mega yachts in the world while others simply adore it. All we can say for certain is that A looks less than a traditional yacht and more like a submarine or a war ship.
