Sailing Yacht M5 - ex Mirabella V

The sailing yacht M5 is owned by Rodney Lewis.

Largest Single-Masted Yacht

M5 is a sloop-rigged super yacht launched in 2003. At an estimated cost of over USD 50 million, she is the largest single-masted yacht ever built. She was built as Mirabella V as part of a fleet of super-yachts initially owned by Joseph Vittoria and used for luxury private charters.


All the Mirabellas, including Mirabella V, were subsequently sold. Mirabella V was designed by Irish-based, New Zealand-born yacht-designer Ron Holland. Technical aspects of the composite construction of hull and rig were supervised by the Hamble-based firm High Modulus Europe Ltd.

Largest Mast, Largest Jib

Historically, yachts over about 25 metres long were typically built with more than one mast in order divide a vessel's sail area into smaller and more-easily handled units. Today's technologies have improved reliability of both larger sails and spars and simplified their handling, allowing Mirabella V to be constructed with the largest mast and largest jib of any sailing craft ever built.
