The 142.8-metre sailing yacht A and the 119-metre motor yacht A with the lights on were filmed in the port of Monaco. The two megayachts, owned by Russian oligarch Andrey Melnichenko, met at the end of the long maiden voyage of sailing yacht A, which left the Nobiskrug docks in Kiel to undergo a final round of tests at the Navantia yard in southern Spain before being handed over to her owner. During the tests it turned out that with two MTU 4,827 hp engines, the largest motor sailer in the world, with a gross tonnage of 12,600 BRT, can reach a top speed of 20 knots. At 16 knots, the yacht can travel 5,320 miles without refuelling.
