Audi yacht

Audi ultra lightweight supermaxi yacht from Audi Singapore, which will sail into Marina Bay, in Singapore, next month as part of the publicity blitz for its new Audi A6.

This marks the first time a yacht of this class and size will be anchored here, and Singaporeans will get a chance to see it from the plaza of Marina Bay Sands from end-August till September, before it is moored at the posh One Degree 15 Marina Club.

Measuring 30m long and 40m tall – that would be about 14 storeys in height – with a sail nearly the size of five tennis courts, the Audi ultra lightweight is a game-changer in the world of competitive sailboats. One of only seven supermaxi yachts in the world, it utilises cutting-edge design and construction tech that allows it to be extremely light – just like the new Audi A6.

The nautical behemoth, which holds several world records and has already won two Maxi World Championships, boasts a speed 33 knots (61km/h) or 17m per second, making it one of the fastest sailboats in the world.
