Not much is known about the interior of the sailing yacht. And no official interior photos have been released. But these photos give a glimpse of her interior. Some of the photos above are from Melnichenko’s Motor Yacht A. Her interior is also by the design of Philippe Stark.
She is rumored to have an underwater observation pod. She accommodates 20 guests and a crew of 54.
We now know that the interior of SY A is very different from the interior of MY A. Where MY A has a lot of white, silver and mirrors, SY A has a more traditional and dark interior. There is a lot of dark wood, copper, and warm carpets with lots of patterns. The yacht’s main salon is a two-deck, has several cozy seatings and integrated bookshelves. Oval windows bring some light.
A 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 the sailing yacht 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.
