Speaking about the design of Motor Yacht A, designer Philippe Starck says his intention was to make the yacht blend with the sea. He was focused on the way the yacht moved through the water, with barely a ripple, “like a whale”, he says.

Like the 142.81 metre sail-assisted motor yacht Sailing Yacht A, Motor Yacht A was designed by legendary designer Philippe Starck (pictured) and was built by Blohm & Voss. Both superyachts are owned by Andrey Melnichenko.
