Default "A" was hanging out in Malibu!!!!! (Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko)

Big yachts generally don't hang out in that area......

Yacht's name is "A". Very futuristic, not many on yachtforums.com like the styling but that's the way he wanted it...The reverse rake of the bow was designed to cut through the waves instead of pounding down on top of them.

And oh yeah who wouldn't like a "nookie room"!!

I heard this thing bankrupted a few of the companies involved in the construction.

She just left San Diego last week. You should have seen the likes of all the tractor trailers for provisioning. One after another...

Amazing -
