Megayacht "A", reportedly belonging to Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko and designed by Philipp Stark, made a grand entrance and docked in Oslo. Stealing the attention in Oslo's bustling fjord is no small task, but A did indeed, as hundreds migrated to the vessel to catch a closer glimpse.According to www.yacht-sea.net, A features 2x MAN RK280 diesel engines and a crew of 42.

U.S. Navy  test vessel, A reportedly makes almost no splash at 24 knots.
