Sailing Yacht ‘A’ Sets Sail For First Time

Delivered by Doyle Sailmakers, the 142.80 metre (468’5” ft) superyacht Sailing Yacht A recently returned from the latest series of sea trials in Germany, showcasing her incredible size, impressive style, and intricately designed mainsail.


The sail-assisted motor yacht is currently in her final stages of testing and outfitting ahead of her expected delivery early next year.

The A Yacht

Designed by Philippe Starck, Sailing Yacht A was commissioned by Russian yachtsman and owner of the 119-metre Motor Yacht A, Andrey Melnichenko. Earlier this year, Melnichenko put Motor Yacht A on the market for $300 million.

Philippe Starck – the man responsible for the striking design of the 119 metre (390’5” ft) Motor Yacht A – worked with the vision of a revolutionary owner, before working in collaboration with the shipyard and sailing experts from across the world to create a truly remarkable project.


When Sailing Yacht A emerged from the Nobiskrug shed in 2015, the status quo of large yacht design and construction was called into question.


This sail-assisted motor yacht blends unconventional design with genuine expertise throughout, with an immediately distinguishable profile and incredible automated rotating masts; the main mast of which stands around 300ft.

Sailing Yacht A is scheduled to be delivered in 2017, and we greatly look forward to seeing her embark on a maiden voyage from Germany and straight into an already iconic career on the water.
