Luxury Yacht at our Door

Doug and I went for a little run Friday morning and when we returned home, this is the breathtaking view that greeted us.  When a ship like this is parked a stones throw away from the front of your house, it's only natural to go straight to google.
This luxury yacht was delivered to owner by Audrey Milnichenk in 2008.  The name of this interesting vessel is A, which stands for the owners name and Alexsandra, his wife. The A is was designed by Philippe Starck and built by Blohm and Voss.  The purchase price was rumored to be 300 million dollars.  It is a speedy vessel, with a maximum speed of 23 knots and cruising speed of 19 knots.  It also uses lots of fuel.  The fuel tank holds 200,000 gallons.  It uses about 27 gallons of fuel per hour. 
The submarine shaped ship is 390 feet long. There are about 24,000 square feet of interior living space.  The master suite is 2,500 square feet.  The windows have 1.7" thick bomb proof glass and there are over 40 CCTV cameras and motion sensors.
You will find a helipad and a swimming pool on the bow.
The stern has 2 swimming pools, one with a glass bottom, a window to the disco below.  This large opening below the aft deck and pool is for the motor boats and watercraft that transport people here and there.

  1. Holy Toledo Kathi! I've never seen a ship like that.
    Hmmm.... I wonder if it has a sewing room and walk in fabric closet? LOL
    Better than the boat: your view is stunning!

    1. I know...what we could do with that kind of space for a sewing room! Thank you!
