The sailing yacht A (known until recently as project White Pearl) is currently under construction at Nobiskrug. She will be the world?s largest sailing yacht and is built for Andrey Melnichenko.
Sailing yacht A is very large - around 144 meters or 468 ft - with 3 masts (300ft. high) and is rumored to cost more than US$ 400 million. She will have 8 decks and will feature a glass underwater observation area.
Like the Motor Yacht A, the Sailing Yacht A is designed by Philippe Starck, and some of her design features are similar to the current A. Her composite masts will be the largest in the world.
She will be powered by a hybrid diesel-electric package with controllable pitch propellers. She will accommodate 20 guests and a crew of 54.
