The 142.8-metre Sailing Yacht A has returned to the waters of the Caribbean this winter season after spending the summer months in the Mediterranean Sea. In this video, taken during the annual St Barths Bucket, the impressive vessel’s design features and exterior deck spaces are highlighted in a symphony of aerial scenes as she spends time in arguably the Caribbean’s most jet-set setting.

Delivered by Nobiskrug in 2017 and classified as a sail-assisted motor yacht, Sailing Yacht A blends elements of both the sailing yacht and motor yacht segments. In addition to those imposing 100-metre-high carbon fibre masts, Sailing Yacht A is fitted with an advanced diesel-electric propulsion system that can deliver a top speed of 21 knots, relying on the power of her twin MTU 20V 4000 ML73 engines in engine mode only.Sailing Yacht A yacht anchored off St. BarthsPhoto: SuperYacht TimesSailing Yacht A yacht anchored off St. BarthsPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times

Sailing Yacht A is the design work of Philippe Starck while Dykstra Naval Architects are behind the naval platform and rig design of the vessel which is said to be able to withstand wind speeds up to 90 knots.Sailing Yacht A yacht anchored off St. BarthsPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesSailing Yacht A in GustaviaPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times
