One of the newest modes of luxury travel that has found the fancy of the rich and wealthy is travelling by water and ultra opulent yachts. Although things like private jets and luxurious cars have, for long, been the reserve of millionaires across the world, the newest avenue of luxury open to the high and mighty has caused a flurry of new and astounding water boats and yachts being created for the fancy of the wealthy.
Billed as one of the world’s most expensive super yachts, the luxury yacht Adastra, commissioned by a Chinese couple was unveiled recently. It took a painstaking five years to build by the famous designer John Shuttleworth and is worth a whopping 14.5 million dollars. Known for its luxury and magnificence, the yacht is also very futuristic in terms of its design and functionality.
The yacht is forty two meters long and has already become an icon of luxury travel; apart from its aesthetic beauty, it is also a very responsible machine, with a progressive design structure that contains carbon fiber nomex honeycomb structuring and Kevlar and glass foam. All the coating and the fancy materials have succeeded in making this one of the fastest and lightest yachts in the world.
The interiors of the yacht are plush with plenty of open space for soaking in the gorgeous sunshine and dining with the spectacular view of the ocean as the backdrop. What adds to the WOW factor is the fact that the functions of the yacht can be controlled via an iPad within 50 feet.
