During the past days Monaco had an interesting sea view featuring the Sailing Yacht A and Motor Yacht A with a combined value of about 710 million Euro.
The Sailing Yacht A is owned by the billionaire Russian oligarch Andrey Melnichenko and its estimated worth is around 425 Million Euro. As today morning the Sailing Yacht A left the harbour of Monaco, it was the first time seen with its enormous sails up.
The staggering Sailing Yacht A is a 468ft-long vessel offers eight floors – with a helicopter pad on one of the decks – and an underwater observation room. It is powered by a ‘hybrid diesel-electric package with controllable pitch propellers,’ and is designed to accommodate 20 guests and a crew of 54.
Project Director Dirk Kloosterman said:
‘This has been the most challenging assignment of my career. I am confident Sailing Yacht A will be the world’s greatest yacht in terms of design and technology for the years ahead.’
