Motor Yacht A

The Amazing Motor Yacht A

Motor Yacht A is an astonishing luxury yacht built by Blohm and Voss and designed by Philippe Starck and Martin Francis. It was delivered to Andrey Melnichenko at a reported USD 300 million cost price.

The Name A: to Appear first in the Registers

Some sources mention that the name A is derived from the initials of its owner Andrey and his wife Aleksandra. However this seems to be just a co-incidence. The main reason for the name A, is the fact that the yacht will appear first in shipping registers.

Akzo Nobel sued over a Bad Paint Job

In 2013 Melnichenko’s company Hamilton Yachts Limited (which formally owns A) sued Dutch paint producer Akzo Nobel for USD 100 million over a bad paint job. Read the court documents about the paint problem here.

She Travels all over the World

In May 2014 the yacht A was spotted in Honolulu, Hawai and in February 2015 she visited Porto Rico. SuperYachtFan spotted her near Antibes, France in the summer of 2015. In December 2015 the yacht A was at Palumbo Shipyard in Malta for a repaint. And in May 2016 she was near Monaco for the 2016 Formula 1 race. The photo’s of the Yacht A at this page are used with the permission of Tom Gulbrandsen. See more of luxury yacht A here.

Put for Sale Asking EUR 250 Million

The yacht A is not available for charter. But enquire now, for your ultimate charter experience on other yachts! Update: The motor yacht A was put for sale with an asking price of EUR 250 million or USD 300 million.

Sailing Yacht A

The Enormous Sailing Yacht A

The Sailing Yacht A (known until recently as project White Pearl) is currently under construction at Nobiskrug. She will be the world’s largest sailing yacht and is built for Andrey Melnichenko. Sailing yacht A is very large - 143 meters or 469 ft with a beam of 25 meters or 82 ft - and is rumored to cost more than US$ 400 million. She will have 8 decks and will feature a 1 ft thick glass underwater observation area, located in the keel.

Philippe Starck

Like the Motor Yacht A, the Sailing Yacht A is designed by Philippe Starck, and some of her design features are similar to the current A. Her composite masts will be the largest in the world. She will be powered by a hybrid diesel-electric package with controllable pitch propellers.

A crow’s net at 60 meters

She will accommodate 20 guests and a crew of 54. She has some remarkable features: her three masts tower up to 328 feet (100 meters) above the water level, with a crow’s nest at 60 meters, there are 24 shell doors in the hull, her decks are connected by several elevators and sailing yacht A will carry a submarine. Her total sail area will be more than 40.000 sq.ft, or more than 3,700m2. A will reach a top speed of 21 knots, with a cruise speed at 16 knots.

Andrey Melnichenko

Andrey Melnichenko Net Worth: US$ 10 billion

Andrey Melnichenko is one of the richest Russians, with a net worth of USD 10 billion (May 2016). He is is a Russian industrialist with businesses in the fields of fertilizers and coal.


He acquired the Siberian Coal Energy Company (SUEK) and the chemical company Eurochem. SUEK is Russia's largest coal producer, with a market share of 31%. Eurochem is Russia’s largest fertilizer producer. In 2012 Eurochem acquired the Belgium activities of BASF. Andrey Melnichenko was also one of the founders of TMK, a pipe and metallurgic company.  In 1993 Melnichenko cofounded MDM Bank, which turned into one of Russia’s largest private banks. But he has sold his shares many years ago and is not involved in banking anymore.

Married to a Serbian model

Melnichenko is married to Serbian model Aleksandra Nikolic. Aleksandra Nikolic started as a fashion model, and later became member of the Serbian pop group Models. Alexandra met Andrey in 2003, and they wedded in 2005. Both Christina Aquilera and Whitney Houston performed at their wedding.

A Boeing Business Jet and many residences all over the world

Properties of Andrey and Aleksandra Melnichenko include a Boeing Business jet with registration MY-BBJ (My Boeing Business Jet), a villa in Cap D’Antibes named Villa Altair, a US$ 12 million penthouse in New York and the US$ 40 million Harewood Estate in the UK. According to a 2008 building permit the Harewood Estate employs 14 gardening staff, 4 house keepers, 2 house managers and 3 security guards. Still it is not as expensive as Bill Gates’ house, which has an estimated value of USD 120 million.
