Most Expensive Yacht in the World 2010

Most Expensive Yacht in the World 2010

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.

3 on board pools, 2 discotheques, a helipad, a swimming platform, a secret sex room and huge boat garage with 3 separate designer boats are just a few things you can find on board of A.

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.

After seeing the photos you probably have your own opinion whether the A is a beauty or not. Here is what the designer of A, Philippe Starck, said about the expensive mega yacht:

We worked for five years to avoid any small details like that which are common in yachts and we finally got a boat which looks like a computer rendering. Such a boat was our vision, the dream.

What do you think of the A? Is it a beauty or a beast?

I could totally see why some people may think it’s the ugliest yacht they’ve ever seen but it has a cool new look to it. A more modern twist you could say. Geez 1.4 million dollars for gas just to take it out on a trip? Some people don’t even make that in their lifetime not to mention spending that on gasoline for a little two-week cruise.

Yeah…. even if you’d somehow get the money to buy the yacht the running costs would literally be too high to handle…

Wow. Every day only the gas cost $100,000. It is crazy. Can I rent it?

I saw this mega monster in Monterey Bay this past weekend. Is incredibly huge in person. I must say we were in awe.

ignant August 30, 2010 at 10:30 pm

hey nasty, I saw it in Monterey as well. what an eye sore. they should have parked it in the water off pebble beach during the pro-am, or better yet it should have been part of the concurs d’elegance… not.

imagine all the wasted natural and unnatural resources used in this abortion. not to mention the carbon footprint it leaves in its wake.

imagine all this to justify an insecurity.

This is a nice yatch indeed, something new and modern from the old usuall watercrafts we have today. However this is not the worlds most expansive yatch as stated above, in fact extremely far, far from it. The worlds most expansive yatch is owned by russian billionaire and Chelsea soccer club owner Roman Abramovich and costs 1.2 billion dollars.
