World's largest sail-assisted motor yacht leaves Douglas bay

Sailing Yacht A departs after five-night stay

The world's largest sail-assisted motor yacht, which had been anchored in Douglas bay, has now moved on.

Sailing Yacht A is owned by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko, and had been here since Sunday.

The 142-metre vessel launched in 2017 and reportedly costs around £360 million.

It's now left Manx shores after its five-night stay, during which time a crew member was granted permission to come ashore, for emergency medical treatment.
