Yacht To Pick Up Some Monet

Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko’s long-awaited yacht is getting some pricey decoration. The wildly distinctive yacht, known simply as “A” named after Melnichenko’s wife Aleksandra, was designed by Philippe Starck. The Times Online reports that the $400 million megayacht recently motored to Norway to pick up three Monet paintings. It is believed that Melnichenko chose Norway to avoid EU import taxes.

The 390-foot ship was built by Blohm & Voss and features details including a glass roof looking up into one of the two swimming pools. It has six guest cabins but room for 42 staff members.
