What would you do with $300 million? Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko bought a yacht designed according to his specific needs and whims. Despite the hefty price tag, the boat is neither the most expensive nor the biggest but it is considered elegant and futuristic. The mega yacht is simply named, “A” for Melnichenko’s first name as well as his wife Aleksandra. What makes this vessel stand out from all the others are the features one would probably see in a James Bond movie. The boat has 44 motion-detection security cameras with night vision infrared system, fingerprint recognition door accessibility and bomb proof glass in the master suite. Now to put things in perspective, it is estimated that it costs $20 million annually to maintain this beauty and each fuel tank costs about $500,000 to fill. These numbers are astronomical for all of us but mere pocket change for Melnichenko whose personal wealth is estimated around $11.4 Billion.
