The masts can withstand 90 knots of wind with full sail up (equivalent to a Category 2 hurricane).

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.
