Owner sues over paint job

ADVERTISEMENT

Russian yacht owner Andrey Melnichenko, owner of the 390-foot (119m) M/Y A built by Blohm + Voss, has sued Akzo Nobel for $100 million over an unsatisfactory paint job.

The paint company repainted the vessel at its own expense, but Melnichenko was still not satisfied and filed suit in a New Jersey court.

His claim includes $24 million to cover the cost of repainting the vessel, alongside a monthly sum of $4 million to pay for a replacement yacht during the 18 months it will take to repaint M/Y A.
