Drone footage of Sailing Yacht A on sea trials


Incredible drone footage displaying the 142.8m Sailing Yacht A underway in the waters surrounding Kiel in Germany have surfaced, revealing the giant sail-assisted motor yacht making its way under power while being closely watched by a following tug boat.

The yacht is still spending her time at the Nobiskrug shipyard with brief voyages out into the protected waters outside Kiel for regular tests. The yacht is yet to set sail and cruise as a sail-assisted motor yacht, having so far only made use of her mechanical propulsion systems.

It has been over a month since it was confirmed that Sailing Yacht A has been built for Russian yachtsman Andrey Melnichenko, owner of the iconic motor yacht A. Read all about Sailing Yacht A’s known details here.
