Motor Yacht A | 119m | Blohm + Voss | 2009

Not many have seen close up shots of motor yacht A, neither know the exact details of her interior design. However, we all know that Motor Yacht A is a unique vessel, with a head-spinning exterior created by Philippe Starck. The futuristic, extraterrestrial, dazzling, beautiful or unusual (call it what want) exterior looks particularly interesting from the aft. Unlike other mega yachts, Blohm + Voss Motor Yacht A does not show off her sunbathing spaces, large swimming pools and alfresco dining areas. If you look at her sister ship Sailing Yacht A, it seems that their owner Andrey Melnichenko appreciates privacy.
