There are yachts, and then there's the $300 million yacht spotted off the coast of Malibu on Wednesday afternoon.
The 390-foot super yacht, known as "A," is the aquatic toy of Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko.
With a $300 million price tag, the boat isn't short on perks. According to a profile in the Wall Street Journal, the vessel has 23,600 square feet of living space, bomb-proofed glass, a fingerprint security system and is filled with floor-ceiling mirrors.
We'll let boating blog "Yacht Pals" highlight some of the other amenities:
To accommodate other pastimes, Mega yacht A has three swimming pools, a helipad, and three 30' speedboats. In addition, it has all the latest entertainment systems, blinking lights, bells and whistles one would expect on a billionaire's mega yacht. Unlike most yachts, however, which usually sport several spacious decks for lounging in the sun and taking in the sea air (or allowing throngs of nude "models" to do same), A's streamlined design is almost entirely enclosed, which suits her reportedly paranoid (but maybe only A-goraphobic?) owner quite well.
