"A" Pulls into Oslo

Monday, June 15, 2009

Last week during the Norshipping 2009 event in Oslo, the unique 394-ft. 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. With its unique bow design, which is hauntingly familiar in look to the Advanced Electric Ship Demonstrator (AESD), Sea Jet, a 133-ft. U.S. Navy  test vessel, A reportedly makes almost no splash at 24 knots.
