Touch Sensitive Black Glass.The windows, which are all oval, look small from a distance, but all have a magnifying effect, making them seem huge from the inside.One-way film to cover the exterior of the glass for privacy and to blend them into the custom metallic paint finish by Alexseal.

8 decks

Multiple elevators and free-floating spiral staircases

Garages for 4 tenders and 1 submarine

Touch-and-go helipad on the bow.

The mainmast towers 100 metres above the waterline The masts are curved.
The masts can withstand 90 knots of wind with full sail up (equivalent to a Category 2 hurricane).

Total sail area of 3,747 m2 is equal to the size of half a football pitch.

The sails, by Doyle Sailmakers of the US, are a combination of carbon and Technora fibres and covered with taffeta to protect them from UV.

Andrey Melnichenko, the Russian billionaire and businessman, is set to rule the seas after building the world’s largest luxury sailing yacht.

The vessel, which cost Mr Melnichenko €400 million (£292 million or $451 million) to build, is one of the most advanced yachts of its kind.

Mr Melnichenko, however, is expected to recover some of the costs by licensing the technology developed for the vessel for commercial applications.
