White Pearl is announced to be the largest sailing yacht in the world with 147M. Built by Nobiskrug in Germany, the yacht was launched a few weeks ago. As the photos shows there is still a lot of work on the boat scheduled for delivery in 2016.
We recently had the spectacle of her extraordinaire masts being shipped. Each of this carbon built mast measure over 90M. They are designed to bend better than the wings of a Boeing plane, after Clive Johnson. As on the Maltese falcon the masts will be able to rotate. To support the sails (larger than a football pitch) the masts are equipped with optic fiber to relay any security issue and optimized the performance.
