A anchored off St Barth
A, designed by Philippe Starck, is without doubt the most eye-catching superyacht ever launched. A, 119m long, is powered by twin 6.035hp MAN RK280 Diesels, providing speeds up to 23 knots. At her top speed, she has a range of 4250nm. Her cruising speed of 19.5 knots, gives her a range of 6500nm. Special features on A, are her stern and side hatches. Through innovative engineering and design, the stern hatch opens up as a huge swim platform over the sea, whilst several side garages host tenders, including the 11m main guest tender, designed by Starck.
