Super Yacht A

By TheURL  
Just got back from a long weekend in Iceland, where I went to see the erupting volcano. You'll have to wait for that but in the meantime here is a photo of Andrey Melnichenko's new boat, which was in Reykjavik bay. It had stopped here to refuel. It has a 12" thick glass section in the keel, and cost 400M. The title is the actual name of the boat - not as inventive as its shape.

When you have too much money...

I read that the one being designed for Jeff Bezos will need a smaller one to travel beside it to accommodate his helicopter.

Yes I saw that - Abramovitch's boat had two helipads - I'm sure they could have found room on Bezos' boat for one. The wiki article for Melnichenko makes for interesting reading - largely a PR exercise I suspect. I doubt anyone could work hard enough to amass such a fortune in so few years without either winning some or stealing some. Good mod - thanks!

Try as an exercise to put in the right order: work, wife, divorce, superyacht.

I hope the helicopter tender / lighter is enclosed, the briny oggin does bad stuff in short time to metals of the types found on those machines. As above, what it is to have too much money.
This looks more like a military stealth vessel than yacht.
