The 142.8m S/Y A, largest private sailing yacht in the world, had been arrested in Gibraltar following a €15,3 million claim filled by Nobiskrug, the shipyard it was built at, late last week. According to our sources the judge approved the order to release the yacht and it will leave Gibraltar soon.This unfortunate incident concerning Sailing Yacht A is now resolved. The yacht will now be handed over to the owner’s project team and will leave Gibraltar shortlySpokesman for the ownerOn February 5th, the sailing yacht left Kiel to undergo further fit out works and sea trials in Spain, and arrived in Gibraltar a few days ago. The vessel is scheduled to be handed over to Mr Melnichenko in late Spring 2017.However, lawyers acting for Nobiskrug have filed a claim against the yacht for a breach of contract. The claim indicated that the final €9,8 million installment was not paid by Valla Yachts Limited, the company that owns S/Y A, despite its January 27th deadline stated in the shipbuilding contract according to their lawyers. This sum is however now in arbitration.A further €2,6 million and €2,9 million were being claimed and are currently disputed costs also under arbitration. Nobiskrug's total allegations therefore amounted to near €15,3 million plus interest. Two days ago S/Y A was moored in the Bay of Gibraltar under the custody of admiralty marshals.With masts taller than Big Ben at nearly 100 meters in height, S/Y A had managed to provide a top speed of 20 knots without using her sails during her first sea trials. The yacht is projected to have a cruising speed of 16 knots powered by twin MTU engines of 4,827hp each which will give her a transatlantic range of 5,320 nautical miles.S/Y A also boasts a digital control system that has a touch sensitive sheet of black glass, allowing the crew to raise and lower sails and the anchor with a simple swipe according to the Daily Mail. Amongst the yacht's key features is also an underwater observation pod and a large swimming pool with a retractable roof located towards the bow of the yacht.Philippe Starck, who had also worked on M/Y A, is responsible for the design, whilst the rig and keel were done by Dutch-based Dykstra Naval Architects, with the masts constructed by British firm Magma Structures and the sails by Doyle Sails in the United States. The yacht boasts eight decks and her keel incorporates one of the largest single pieces of curved glass ever made at 193 square feet and weighs a whopping 1.8 tons. S/Y A is expected to be operated by a crew of 54.When the project for S/Y A was first announced in August 2015, she was first referred to as a sail-assisted motor yacht and can in fact reach up to 20 knots without using her sails as became known during her sea trials. Stretching across a beam of 24.8 meters at her widest point, she comes in at just 3,100GT less than Dilbar, the largest yacht in the world by interior volume.Photos by Nicolas Canepa

Oceanco's highly confidential 88.5m superyacht Barbara (Y715), has been lowered into the water in Keppel Veroime more than 3 months ago. Since then we have received the photos of the superyacht undergoing her first sea trials and returning to the Dutch yard's facility in Alblasserdam afterwards. Having left Holland last week, Barbara stopped at the Port of Gibraltar on the way to Falmouth, the UK.Launched at the end of October, she has a beam of 14.5m and a draft of 3.95m. Exterior styling and interior design are by Sam Sorgiovanni Designs. The yacht presents a modern sporty look with a dark blue hull which is generously offset with a contrasting white superstructure. With no sharp edges, she has a very organic form with large elliptical-shaped hull windows that complement Y715’s curvilinear profile. The superyacht has also been spotted in Zwijndrecht, the Netherlands and at the Dutch shipyard moored next to the 106m sailing yacht Y712.Photos by @Superyachts_gibraltar

Hakvoort largest superyacht to date, the 61m Just J's, has been spotted in Miami. Launched in November 2015, she has been styled by Sinot Yacht Design, with naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design.Constructed with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, Just J's most alluring characteristics are the large windows, especially in the guest cabins on the main deck forward and the lines of the hull. Thanks to her elongated silhouette, partially closed foredeck and balance between the superstructure and the hull, she looks substantially longer than her 61 metres on the water. Another notable feature is the eye-catching three metre contraflow swimming pool on the sun deck, which is covered in mosaics inspired by the Caribbean Sea. She also carries a nine metre tender and four jet ski's in the tender garage, all of which can be launched from large gullwing doors on either side. Other amenities on board include a well equipped gym, a cinema room on the bridge deck, as well as a tender and four jetskis which are launched from large gullwing doors on either side.Just J's can provide accommodation for up to 14 guests in seven cabins, as well as a crew of 16. The master stateroom, located on the dedicated owners deck above the main deck, is decorated in light colours with contrasting accents. There is a large glass dome above the bed and a private outdoor area with a hot tub forward. Performance wise, Just J's reaches a top speed of 15,5 knots, comfortably cruises at 13 knots, and has a range of some 4,000 nautical miles. An even larger project named Something Cool is under construction at the shipyard. It is scheduled for delivery in 2017.Photos by Ron Raffety
