Re: Mega yacht "A"

"A"mazing to see in real life 3D. Pictures really don't convey the size, it's like an entity. We rode past it last season on our RIB just north of Olbia, Sardinia. It's not possible to get very close.

There's a RIB next to "A" in your picture, which is probably a forty or fifty ft dinghy.

Re: Mega yacht "A"

I'm sure it was amazing to see from the sea. I took the pic from the shore, a bit far, sadly.

Re: Mega yacht "A"

Andreï Melnichenko is the owner of another mega yacht named "A" as well (A as Alexandra, his wife), what is a futuristic sail boat 370' length.

Re: Mega yacht "A"

One Mega yacht you'd really enjoy is "Ace" and it's tender "Garçon." Garcon is essentially a two hundred foot giant toybox complete with helipad and several forty to fifty foot yachts on deck.

Re: Mega yacht "A"

Was close aboard to "A" in Grand Turk last year. It is amazing in every way. Powerboat and Water Toy hangers open make for wonderful insight.

Too bad we were far away to take the pic but I thought that would be interesting to show folks here.

Is the bow of that yacht in a different country than the stern?

Re: Mega yacht "A"

I came out of the companionway one morning after a night at anchor just outside of Portal Portals & found A laying to anchor just a couple of hundred yards away. She sure got our attention. That was just after she was commissioned. Since then we've seen her a few times--she is still one of my all-time favourite motor yachts.

Re: Mega yacht "A"

I'd read he'd named her A so she'd be at the top of the (alphabetical) list of megayachts.

Re: Mega yacht "A"

One thing is for sure, these Russian Oligarchs are not short on ego so you could well be right!
