German builder Blohm+Voss has launched some incredible custom yachts over the years. While the word unique is often a misnomer in yachting, the best Blohm+Voss superyachts are truly worthy of the term. With unusual exterior design, bold windows and completely unconventional lines, these yachts stand out while standing the test of time.
Case in point, the completely one of a kind superyacht A built for Russian yacht owner Andrey Melnichenko. Designed inside and out by Philippe Starck with naval architecture by Martin Francis, the 119 metre motor yacht A redefined preconceived notions of what a yacht could look like when she emerged in 2008. Though considered a bit of an oddity at the time, she has since gone on to serve as the golden example of what truly unique yacht design can be and is one of the most easily recognisable yachts in the world. Very few yachts have garnered as much attention since then until A's sistership, the boundary pushing Sailing Yacht A.
