This $550m yacht is so big it even has a room in its mast

sya-leadSailing Yacht A has been built for Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko.

Melnichencko made his fortune in fertiliser, coal and electricity, and likes to spend it on big things. He owns a Boeing 737 BBJ, a villa in Antibes, an estate in Berkshire, and Motor Yacht A – a $400 million luxury motor yacht.

Motor Yacht A is currently the 21st biggest motor yacht in the world, and clearly, that doesn’t cut it for Melnichenko, so he’s put it up for sale.

Sailing Yacht A will put him at the head of the list by some margin. It’s 142.1m long, more than 30m longer than the nearest rival, Sea Cloud.
