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. You can view the top 10 stunning photos of Sailing Yacht A here.
