Sailing Yacht A delivered

One of the world’s largest superyachts, Sailing Yacht A, has been delivered by Nobiskrug.

Having completed her final set of sea trials last month, the 142.8m sail-assisted motoryacht was originally commissioned by Russian yacht owner Andrey Melnichenko and was most recently pictured with new underwater lighting.

Speaking about her delivery, Holger Kahl, managing director of Nobiskrug commented, “Born from the desire of the owner to push the boundaries of engineering and challenge the status quo of the industry, Sailing Yacht A is undoubtedly one of the most visionary projects Nobiskrug has ever been involved in.”

Aerial images of Sailing Yacht A first emerged in March 2015, offering a glimpse of her vast size, and unique design. She was then technically launched in 2015, but since then very few details have been revealed.

Her rig and keel were designed by Dykstra Naval Architects, with Magma Structures building the carbon masts, which reach up to 100m above waterline. She is powered by two 4,827hp MTU diesel engines, able to reach a top speed of 21 knots, and a transatlantic range of 5,320nm when cruising at 16 knots.
