It is reported that the “A” burns up to 700 gallons per hour while cruising, and that a fill-up can run nearly half a million US dollars. It has three swimming pools, a helipad, and three 30′ speedboats. It also has 23,600 square feet of living space.
Heads up to the pirates down at the beach: the boat’s windows are made of bomb-proof glass and there are fingerprint scanners at every door. Forty-four security camera litter the boat’s interior and exterior, some equipped with night-vision infrared and motion-detection systems.
