An imposing vessel at 394-feet in length and valued at $300 million dollars, the yacht was named “A” by Melnichenko in honor of his wife, Aleksandra. She was on board along with her husband and their little dog.

Take Tour: Mr. Melnichenko's 394-foot megayacht "A" has become the most talked-about yacht on the seas

After Naples and Capri the couple stopped in Ischia attracting much attention. The silhouette makes for a cross between a spaceship and a submarine with silver bulkheads that are, in effect, a sophisticated anti-pirate satellite alarm system. The fuel tanks are equipped with enough fuel to travel over 65,000 miles at a cost of approximately one million Euros. This, though, allows the yacht to travel a distance comfortably from London to Cape Town avoiding refueling stops.

The mega yacht is dotted with a landing pad for a full ocean helicopter, three convertible top swimming pools programmable with special wave effects, along with a garage capable of holding several motorboats which on occasion is transformed into a discotheque and aquarium.
