A Russian billionaire’s $480 million superyacht has been spotted again, this time by Conor McGregor — and he’s … – Business Insider

The £360 million “Sailing Yacht A,” one of the largest private sailing yachts in the world owned by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko, was spotted sailing in the crystalline waters of Formentera again on Tuesday – this time by UFC star Conor McGregor.

Formentera is a tiny island off Ibiza, and a celebrity and billionaire hotspot. Its white sands and turquoise waters resemble the Caribbean.

McGregor has been living it up in Ibiza with family and friends after losing a fight to Floyd Mayweather just over a fortnight ago. He was enjoying life aboard boats and yachts himself when he spotted Sailing Yacht A.

His first post was captioned: “The 360 million dollar “sailing yacht A” pulls up out the back garden this morning. “Sailing yacht A” its called. That’s how you know the owner doesn’t need to give a bollox about anything. Sailing yacht A. Most expensive sailing yacht in the world. 360mill. Owned by a Russian billionaire. Google it. Crazy!”

First he admired it from afar in his Versace dressing gown, before deciding to get a closer look…

…So he got out a huge lens to zoom in, and posted: “Quick scope of it before I depart like a pirate towards it.”

He even took out a jet ski to get a closer look of what he calls a “super boat.” He said, “It’s like something out of a bond film. Can’t believe this just pull up.”

His photos show the sheer size of the 142.8-metre vessel, which boasts 300 ft masts that are taller than Big Ben, and counts eight decks (connected by a series of lifts), a free-floating spiral staircase, huge swimming pool, and underwater observation pod among its stunning features.

Finally, he posted a photo of himself and Melnichenko’s Sailing Yacht A in the background, which has been liked almost 1 million times so far.

That was a mad scene. I only posted “race to the next yacht” two days ago and then this one pulls up right out my back garden. The biggest one of all. This is an eye opening level of opulence to witness first hand. To me, it is truly motivating. I’m starting to think I don’t have a wealth belly just yet. I’m more just rich fat now. I must keep eating. I wonder if my lunch is ready. Happy Tuesday

McGregor, has been living it up in Ibiza on an impressive yacht himelf, joined by family and friends, since losing a fight to Floyd Mayweather a fortnight ago. They appeared to be enjoying the Balearic sunshine.
