'A' - or a $300 million yacht

Of course the owner of this impressive yacht is a Ruassian, Andrey Melnichenko. Its yacht features a radical shape and was designed by Philippe Starck. Completed in 2008 the yacht is estimated at $300 million.

Called ’A’, the yacht features is secured by a fingerprint security system, with only four people in the world having access to it. And after you get inside there is an all-white, 2,583-square-foot master suite wrapped n bomb-proof, 44-millimeter glass. The combination of the rotating bed and the rotating platter allows limitless angles for watching the sunset, sunrise or the 60-inch plasma TV, which retracts from the ceiling.

Instead of regular couches and mahogany walls, there are Baccarat-crystal tables, shiny white finishes and polished silver, a kind of Manhattan-loft-meets-Vegas aesthetic. Many of the rooms have floor-to-ceiling mirrors, which Mr. Starck says have a built-in "mathematical beauty" that also refer to the "mathematical genius" of Mr. Melnichenko. The walls of one room are covered in white sting-ray hides, while another is covered in hand-stitched calf’s leather. The main deck features two Michel Haillard chairs made from alligator hides and Kudo horns.
