Default The two megayachts A together, face to face

Certainly a special occasion to see these two original megayacht designs together to appreciate their differences.

I like the one of the right. The styling is pretty cool. If I could afford a mega, the last thing I would want is something that looks like a small cruise ship. I would want to be different. The one of the left appears to have much more space in it though. I wonder what the performace is while using the sails.

Charter no matter what. Stupid expensive especially when some people on this planet don't even have clean drinking water.

If they were giving them away, I guess I'd take one. Maybe the white one would do most damage to a containership if rammed below the water line?

Your boat could make a significant difference in someone's life. Lead by example.

Pretty cool to see, thanks for posting!

I think I remember reading about the motoryacht A that the top floor of the superstructure was the owner's suite.

one on left..isn't that the one owned by a russian billionaire? Doesn't appear to have any windows? Fark that,,,I gotta have windows....or ports..whatever they call them on a yacht. The one on the right looks like one of those new Navy stealth ships.

Default Yachts

We were in Monte Carlo in May, he had both of them there. Why take one yacht when you can take too? Unreal. Crew of 53 on one and crew of 45 on the other. Not bad for a Russian guy in the " fertilizer business"

I was in Positano Italy in May. On our way to the island of Capri, we passed within 50feet of that ugly sailboat and believe me, it's not as impressive up close as it is in these pictures.

For what it's worth, the white one was anchored offshore of Staniel Cay 4 years ago while I visited a friend and his wife. He has "upgraded" to a larger toy now..... all for a cool $1.5B

That is the ugliest sail boat I've ever seen.
