Infographic: Sailing Yacht A in numbers

This infographic highlights some key statistics about Sailing Yacht A, and has been put together with information in our exclusive feature about the facts of Sailing Yacht A, from the November issue of Boat International.

Did you know that the design was commissioned seven years ago? Read on for more numbers about what is set to become the world's largest sailing yacht.

_To see the full Sailing Yacht A infographic, click here or on the image below. _

As the infographic illustrates, Sailing Yacht A has a total sail area of 3,747 metres, which is 67% bigger than Maltese Falcon’s. She’s also the owner of the world’s tallest carbon masts – her mainmast is 100 metres off water. You can find out more about Sailing Yacht A’s rig and sail plan on this website.

At 142.81 metres long, Sailing Yacht A can accommodate 54 crew. But it’s not just her size that is innovative – her owner Andrey Melnichenko is known for introducing new technologies to his yacht projects and there is truly some innovative work being done during the construction of Sailing Yacht A.

The underwater observation pod on Sailing Yacht A is another innovative design element, which is moulded into the keel and offers views below and on each side of the underwater wildlife.
