on the West Coast

A, designed by Philippe Starck, is currently on a tour of the US West Coast, and she is causing quite a stir as she goes along. The eye-catching superyacht A measures 119m long, and 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 long foredeck houses a large glass fronted rectangular swimming pool, and her aft deck features a second massive pool. A third and fourth Jacuzzi are located aft on her bridge deck, and on her topdeck.
