Motor Yacht A
A few years ago, we were told that Japanese billionaire Masayoshi Son had purchased the yacht. But a representative of Mr Melnichenko denied this.
But there are some persistent rumors that MY A was indeed sold. And since that moment she spends most of her time in Asian waters.

Mashayoshi Son house
Son lives in a large mansion in Tokyo, but he also bought a large house in Woodside, California.
He was the owner of a Gulfstream G650 private jet with registration N251TD and a G550 with registration N251GV. Both aircraft had the same livery. Bot jets have been sold. Do you know which jet is owned by Mr. Son? Please do send us a message.
UPDATE: He is the owner of a Gulfstream G650ER with registration N302TR. The aircraft was built in 2017. She is legally owned by WILMINGTON TRUST CO TRUSTEE. But Son has given a guarantee for the jet through his personal holding company Son Asset Management.
All three aircraft have – more or less – the same livery.
