The largest sailing ship in the world, that in Gibraltar the chain was in place because of the disagreement about the payment, is released again.

The buyer, a Russian billionaire, and the German shipyard where the ship was built have their financial litigation, according to German media Tuesday.

Monday, it was announced that the famous Frenchman Philippe Starck-designed yacht in Gibraltar on the necklace was made because a account of 15 million euros would open in the builder, the shipyard Nobiskrug in Kiel. The ship was on the way to Spain for the official transfer to the Russian billionaire Andrei Melnitsjenko.

For a court in Gibraltar, the parties ultimately reached an agreement.

The ship, currently Sailing a Yacht named A, is 143 meters long and the mast is 90 metres high. The sail area is more than 3.700 square meters, or half a football pitch.

There is mention of a purchase price of approximately 400 million euros. The ability of Melnitsjenko is estimated at 8 billion.
