Andrew Melnichenko's $580 million yacht has not been found. It had rotating beds and Baccarat crystal tables.

A Superyacht is considered the most effective tool for the ultra-rich to show off their wealth and status.  

Among the world's wealthiest people, the majestic Motor Yacht A defines the pecking order. 

The unique design of the yacht, owned by Russian tycoon Andrey Melnichenko, made it a star in the world of yachts. 

There is speculation that the 119-meter superyacht was named "A" so that it would appear first in shipping registers 

but also so that nothing would precede it on a list of the greatest vessels in the world 

As a result of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, a conspicuous superyacht that enjoyed its spotlight is desperately trying to stay hidden. 

In order to avoid being seized, Melnichenko's Motor Yacht A has gone "dark" to avoid being confiscated.

According to public marine traffic data, Motor Yacht A was detected in the Indian Ocean near Male 

Maldives during the first week of March.
