Launched in 2008 by German shipyard, Blohm+Voss, the Motor Yacht A was commissioned by Russian owner Andrey Melnichencko. Starck spent four years working on the project, creating the interior and exterior design, as well as the design for the custom tenders. Martin Francis was responsible for the naval architecture.
