New super yacht "Adastra" has a range of 4,000 miles; enough to sail from the UK to New York in a single trip without refuelling. The 42m yacht has a maximum speed of 22.5knots.
It has been described as one of the world’s most amazing super yachts ever to set sail. The £42m luxury trimaran yacht certainly turned a few heads at its launching ceremony in China earlier this month. Commissioned by Hong Kong clients Anto and Elaine Marden, it is the result of years of design, planning and construction.
The latest breakthrough technology has been incorporated in to the mechanism of the yacht. It features an integrated ship monitoring system and can even be controlled with an Apple iPad within a certain range. It can host up to nine guests and has room for 5-6 crews. Adastra’s 16 metre beam features a saloon area on the main deck with a lounge area, dining table and bar.
The super yacht is powered by one Caterpillar C18 engine of 1150hp at 2300 rpm and has 2 Yanmar 110hp at 3200 rpm outrigger engines.
