Just been running through my snaps  ;D

And found this , it's just called "A" and owned by a Russian Billionaire.

And to feel for the size if you look at the van sitting beside it .. :woot:




Quote


Introducing A the most recent member of the giga-yacht club, and to put things in perspective, the fuel tank is 757,000 liters. Diesel fuel costs around 1.40 per liter currently, so it would cost just over 1 million to fill the fuel tank. $1.4 million US just to fill the tank. That amount of fuel will last 15.5 days at cruising speed. So the cost of building the ship becomes a little academic when the running costs are taken into consideration. I am exaggerating slightly as I have no doubt they are not paying retail for the fuel, but you get the idea. Seeing as the owner also owns one of the largest coal companies in the world, I very much doubt the cost of fuel is an issue



A's strange science fiction submarine-like structure holds a crew of 42, who can all cruise along at nearly 24 knots on A's two huge diesel engines (9,000-kw MANs). The yacht has enormous fuel tanks for extended cruising, and she needs them to power those big engines. It has been reported that the mega yacht A burns up to 700 gallons per hour while cruising, and that a fill-up can run nearly half a million US dollars. Talk about A-hole in the water to pour money into!



There are six guest suites on the yacht, but movable leather-covered walls make it possible to create four larger suites, in case the guests need some more elbow room. The master bedroom on A is located at the top of that odd looking conning-tower/superstructure, where from up on high, Andrey Melnichenko and his wife Alexandra Kokotovich's can watch the world go by from an enormous bed which rotates like a turntable, offering a panoramic view out all the windows. For added privacy, it's said the couple had a special hidden nookie room designed for "doing it" in the A.
 


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.
