Here she is again, the star of the superyacht media – Sailing Yacht A. This time, there is some big news to share: she has finally been delivered to her owner. Upon her delivery, the brand new video on the construction of Sailing Yacht A had been revealed by the American sail manufacturer Doyle. Not only that but also the first images of Sailing Yacht A and Motor Yacht A cruising together in Monaco have been released.
Sailing Yacht A belongs to the Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko, who is the owner of the other iconic superyacht, Motor Yacht A built by Blohm+Voss. Below are the first photos of the two mega yachts cruising together.
Sailing Yacht A’s sails were first seen during first see trails, which she was undergoing in Germany. Built by Nobiskrug, this 142.81-metre massive superyachts projects not only adds to the excellent reputation of the shipyard but also suggests that Germany is, perhaps, the leading country in terms of producing the largest and the most spectacular superyachts.
Sailing Yacht A is one of the most expensive in the world, estimated at US$400 million. The innovative design and the latest technology used in the construction and operation of this vessel, justify the costs. Thus, Sailing Yacht A boasts the tallest masts in the world, which can handle winds of 90 knots. Below is the video showcasing the head-spinning sails made by Doyle Sailmakers.
Both Sailing Yacht A and Motor Yacht A have futuristic, yet controversial exterior design. An enormous amount of criticism and admiration has been expressed concerning the looks of both yachts. Nevertheless, highly professional teams of the leading superyacht designers worked on the development of these mega yachts. Sailing Yacht A and Motor Yacht A were designed by Philippe Stark.
