She's here.

A yacht worth $300 million sailed under the Golden Gate sometime Wednesday morning.

If you haven't heard about it before, here's a quick review.

A 390-foot super yacht, known as "A," which is the aquatic toy of Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko has been making port-stops up the coast of California for a couple weeks.

She was docked in San Diego at the first of the month.  Then was spotted off Malibu about a week ago.  Now she is sitting just outside Sausalito

The helicopter video shows the huge yacht dwarfing tiny homes along the hills of Marin.   The photo at the top was sent to us by Frank Bumbalo, who got an up close look at "A."

With a $300 million price tag, the boat isn't short on perks. According to a profile in the Wall Street Journal, she has 23,600 square feet of living space, three swimming pools that can go from fresh water to salt with the flip of a switch, and a 24,000 horse power engine. She also comes with some high security features such as bomb-proofed glass and a fingerprint security system.

Here's a link to a slideshow with photos of more of the world's biggest yachts.
