ONE of the most eye-catching and expensive superyachts ever seen in the capital sailed down the river yesterday morning.
After a week of turning heads with its distinctive lines, Motor Yacht "A" departed under Tower Bridge at 0730 on Saturday morning.
Reported to be on the market for about $300 million, the 119 metre long vessel was designed by Philippe Starck for the Russian billionaire, Andrey Melnichenko.
M/Y A was assisted backwards under Tower Bridge by Walsh's SWS Breda on a day which was as grey and wet as the one on which she arrived last week.
The yacht sailed down river and headed out to a mooring just off Margate where she spent Saturday night.
