NOBISKRUG | 143m “Sailing Yacht A” delivered

NOBISKRUG has today announced the delivery of the most advanced sail-assisted superyacht ever built: “Sailing Yacht A”. Measuring almost 143 meters (468ft) and a gross tonnage of about 12,600 GT, and thanks to her striking looks and innovative technology, “Sailing Yacht A” is among the most anticipated deliveries of 2017 and she will definitely change the future landscape of the NOBISKRUG fleet as well as the future of supersail. She will also become one of the greatest PYC superyachts in the world in terms of design and technology.

Working with the Owners Project Director, Dirk Kloosterman and his dedicated team, NOBISKRUG engineered and constructed a masterpiece. “Sailing Yacht A” leads the way with her revolutionary engineering and design. She is one of the world’s largest and the most advanced superyacht with unique features such as underwater observation pod, hybrid diesel-electric propulsion system and stateof-the-art navigation systems. The three masts are the tallest and most highlyloaded freestanding composite structures in the world. The mainmast towers 100 meters above the waterline.

World-renowned Philippe Starck created the unconventional design, which challenges the expectations of conventional aesthetics as he did for Motor Yacht A.

NOBISKRUG high-tech building technology made this fascinating design possible. Steel hull and steel superstructure with high-tech composite fashion plates that can be formed into any shape or size, a technology NOBISKRUG has developed during the past 15 years in co-operation with classification societies and special subcontractors.

“Born from the desire of the owner to ‘push the boundaries of engineering and challenge the status quo of the industry’, “Sailing Yacht A” is undoubtedly one of the most visionary projects NOBISKRUG has ever been involved in”, says Managing Director, Holger Kahl.
