"A"

29 May 2010

A sleek mega yacht pulled alongside the town of St. George's this morning...

"A" is owned by Russian energy and banking magnate Andrei Melnichenko. Designed to resemble a submarine warship, the mega yacht is longer than a football field - stretching 394 feet.

The mega yacht's name, "A", is a tribute to Andrei and his wife Aleksandra Nikolic. "A" was built to be bigger and more expensive than Pelorus, the pride of Russian Billionaire Roman Abramovich, (owner of the Chelsea Football Club) who has since built a new mega yacht called Eclipse.

Update: The Wall Street Journal has a short video featuring the interior of "A".

PS: Thanks to an anonymous commenter for the pre-arrival tip last night, and to Ryan Hopkin for the location update this morning!

WOW!! and I was just sent a pic of Abramovich's new yacht in the shipyard a month ago (and it is a big boy) but at least traditional looking. can't say I like this one though. the big boys are having a pissing contest, I see. LOL

Dear Mr. Joshua,

You are god gifted. The most astonishing picture I have ever seen. You made my entire friend in US and India to love Grenada. They always ask is it where you live. It is paradise on earth. And this is just because of you.

I would request you to please upload pictures of Indian dance troupe’s performance at SGU and other.

Best wishes

Anurag
