A on the Capri Coast
A, designed by Philippe Starck, 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. There is even a Jacuzzi inside the main saloon. Designer Starck also designed the interior, which he described as as "the elegance of intelligence". She was built at the Blohm & Voss yard, builders of some of the world's largest yachts, such as Savarona, Lady Moura, Palladium and Eclipse.
