With reference to Brian Stone’s letter in the June 2013 issue of Sea Breezes, the yacht photographed departing Lisbon is what is being called a Mega yacht and named simply “A”.
She arrived in Auckland on Monday 23 Sept 2013 and according to an article and photo in the New Zealand Herald of 24th, is owned by a Russian billionaire named Andrey Melnichenko.
The vessel is in Auckland for maintenance before the owner joins to cruise around New Zealand this summer.
