Aboard Russian Billionaire Andrey Melnichencko's $300 Million Yacht (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The interior of Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichencko's 394-foot yacht has never before been viewed by the public -- until now. The Wall Street Journal gained unprecedented access to tour the ship, called the 'A,' which reportedly costs more than $300 million.

Designed by the legendary French designer, Phillipe Starck, the "A" features luxuries most of us can hardly dream up, like a glass-bottomed pool built atop a disco or a plush room with walls covered in stingray hides.

Among other absurdities, the ship has a $60,000 bannister, a master bedroom that opens only to a fingerprint and a secret room designated specifically for "nookie," which any owner of a ship like this surely has no shortage of.

Check out the Wall Street Journal's exclusive tour of Andrey Melnichencko's famous yacht below:
