Sailing Yacht A Pushes the Boundaries of Engineering and Design

Sailing Yacht A takes the award for Best Sail-Assisted Motor Yacht in the World Superyacht Awards 2018. Offering the best in design and technology, Super Yacht A comes equipped with a hybrid diesel-electric propulsion system and an innovative navigation system sure to make all other yachts jealous. Designer Philippe Starck pulled out all the stops in Germany during the construction of the mega yacht. The three masts are the tallest, most highly loaded freestanding structures in the world, with the mainmast hovering at 100 meters above the waterline, towering over even Big Ben. She also features an on-deck jacuzzi, elevator, touch-and-go helipad, and a unique underwater observation-pod, luxury being first and foremost.

China’s Largest Superyacht Finally Able to Traverse the Seas

Chinese yard Pride Mega Yachts announced 11 years ago that it would be constructing the superyacht Illusion Plus, the largest superyacht to ever sail out of China. However, it was delayed due to the world economic crisis. Now, after an April launch, the Illusion Plus has successfully finished up the sea trials and is ready to brave the seven seas. British studio Rainsford Saunders Design incorporated a gently sloping transom and straight vertical bows, to mirror those of a Rolls-Royce. Her guests will be able to enjoy the spa with sauna, steam, and massage room and the helipad for a quick means of travel. She joins the prestigious ranks of the 100 largest superyachts in the world.
