Ever wondered what the world’s largest sailing superyacht looks like? Take a glimpse at the rendering below, showing the €400 million SAILING YACHT A, currently being built to a design by Philippe Starck for Russian billionaire, Andrey Melnichenko. To measure impressive 143m (468’) in length over all, SAILING YACHT A is expected to undergo her first sea trials later this year.
To represent one of the most advanced yachts of her kind, SAILING YACHT A is reported to build on the pioneering use of nautical engineering used in Melnichenko’s first MOTOR YACHT A. To span over eight generous decks, SAILING YACHT A will undoubtedly mix up ultimate luxury with the latest technology.
Andrey Igorevich Melnichenko, born 8 March 1972 in Gomel, Belarus, is a Russian businessman and billionaire. With an estimated personal wealth of $9.2 billion, in 2015 he ranked 97th in the Forbes World’s billionaires list.
