During a recent sea trial over the past weekend, the 142.8-metre Sailing Yacht A conducted her first test at sea with one of her sails, delivered by Doyle Sailmakers, hoisted. The sail-assisted motor yacht is currently in her final stages of testing and outfitting ahead of her expected delivery early next year. Designed by Philippe Starck, Sailing Yacht A was commissioned by Russian yachtsman and owner of the 119-metre M/Y A, Andrey Melnichenko.
