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.
