Baccarat Meets Bomb-Proof Glass on the High Seas

The interior of Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichencko’s 394-foot yacht has never before been viewed by the public — until now. The Wall Street Journal gained unprecedented access to tour the ship, called the ‘A,’ which reportedly costs more than $300 million.

Designed by the legendary French designer, Phillipe Starck, the “A” features luxuries most of us can hardly dream up, like a glass-bottomed pool built atop a disco or a plush room with walls covered in stingray hides.  Among other absurdities, the ship has a $60,000 bannister, a master bedroom that opens only to a fingerprint and a secret room designated specifically for “nookie,” which any owner of a ship like this surely has no shortage of.
