Philippe Starck designed Motor Yacht “A” with Martin Francis for Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko. Built by Blohm+ Voss, Motor Yacht A is 119 meters long and weighs approximately 5500 tonnes. Reminiscent of a submarine warship the mega yacht’s name is a tribute to Andrey Melnichenko and his wife Serbian fashion model Aleksandra Nikolic. Current value: $300 million. Think about that, Mr. Briatore.
Starck also designed Tenders to move in and out from the giant yacht, inspired by the 1997 Vaudrey Miller’s (Australian brand for the best tenders you can imagine), 11m Limousine is coupled with a 11m Open, for servicing only.
