Underwater lighting illuminates Sailing Yacht A's hull

Pictured in January 2017, shortly before her delivery, Sailing Yacht A is seen here illuminating the waters around the Nobiskrug yard with her underwater lighting. This stunning photo also shows her light-up nameplate, which matches the style of the nameplate on Melnichenko's Motor Yacht A.

Aft view of Sailing Yacht A

This photo of Sailing Yacht A gives a view of a parts of the yacht that was previously unseen — the aft deck. Much like Andrey Melnichenko's Motor Yacht A, the yacht looks as though there isn't much outdoor space, but seen from behind in this video of Motor Yacht A, the preconceived notion changes. The same can be said for her sailing counterpart. You can see that there are layers of decks that enjoy outdoor space, and the top deck is glassed in, giving a view to the indoor-outdoor lifestyle that might be enjoyed on Sailing Yacht A.

Drone video footage of Sailing Yacht A

One of the best photos of Sailing Yacht A to arise when she went out on sea trials was this shot taken from a drone video. From this angle, we get a great view of the foredeck of Sailing Yacht A and the outdoor living spaces here, which hadn't been seen before.

Masts stepped on Sailing Yacht A

It was big news when the masts were stepped on Sailing Yacht A and we got to see what this formidable vessel would look like for the first time. It also made for one of the best photos of Sailing Yacht A to finally see the giant masts get stepped atop the giant yacht. Dykstra Naval Architects designed the rig on the three-masted yacht, while Philippe Starck, who also designed Steve Jobs' Venus, worked on the yacht's design.
