Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichencko has not been the type to grant easy access of his private yacht in past, but recently the Wall Street Journal was surprisingly welcomed with open (and very rich) arms.

The yacht, simply named 'A' and reportedly costing $300 million, is a result of renowned French designer Phillipe Starck's handiwork. What makes it different from your average decked-out dingy?
