Behold: the Sinot Aqua – an ultra luxury conceptual super yacht with a nod to environmental responsibility. Powered by PEM fuel cells fed by liquid hydrogen, the only by product of propulsion is water.
Stealthy, on account of its electric drive, the ship has a 3,750 nautical mile range at a speed of 17 knots.
The impressive 112m length provides for a wide beam pavilion on the upper level, beach deck, VIP staterooms, a large pool and the usual slew of sunpads, ‘wellness zones’ and outdoor dining areas.
No, it wouldn’t fit in Bray harbour or hook up nice behind a 1998 Subaru Forester.
Behold: tennis superstar Rafael Nadal’s recently commissioned 80 Sunreef Power luxury catamaran.
Fully customised with a high grade adjustable teak deck, bar, open kitchen, six cabins and garage filled with jet skis and other water toys, Nadal will take delivery sometime next year.
Ah, but will it make him happy though?
Behold: the LOV38 – a concept named after the collaboration between Lynx Yachts, Omega Architects and Van Oossanen Naval Architects. But you knew that.
Fancy a luxury cruiser with an ultra stable fast-displacement hull, twin 2,000 MTU diesel engines, a top speed of 21.7 knots, two exterior dining areas, a full beam master suite, up to six guest rooms, and a spacious ‘beach club’ area? Thought so.
Price on application.
Behold the Vripack Rock Explorer Yacht – a luxury cruiser described by its Dutch designer as ‘the SUV of the sea’.
With three guest cabins, a generous master suite and sundeck complete with hot tub, the 25m long vessel is powered by two 1000bhp V12 Caterpillar engines with a top speed of 16 knots and a range of 4800km.
Behold: the SX76 yacht from Italian yard San Lorenzo – part flybridge cruiser, part recreational explorer.
Powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS 1050s with a top speed of 22 knots, theSX76’s open top deck allows guests to move freely from kitchen, dining and living area out to the aft seating and an 18m² beach deck doubling as space for tender and jet ski.
Below deck, bespoke Lissoni interiors continue through a master suite, two twin berths and a forward VIP room.
Price on application but don’t expect much change from €4,000,000.
Behold: the SolarImpact Electric Yacht – a 25m twin-hulled cruiser powered by two 500kW engines fed entirely by roof mounted solar panels and a battery array.
Capable of 22 knots with AI guidance systems that allow the vessel to be controlled by a single person. Possibly you.
Price on application but if you’re asking, you’re not buying.
The World, the largest privately owned residential yacht where people from 45 countries live and work all year round, moored in Dublin quays..
Behold: the LY 650 – a 20m yacht from Toyota’s luxury division, echoing the curves and styling cues of various Lexus models.
The vessels – powered by twin marine versions of the 5.0l V8 Lexus engine – will be built, sold and serviced by Marquis-Larson Group from 2019
Pricing and full specs to be announced.
Behold the Numarine 26XP – the GTi of expedition yachts or, perhaps, the Z4 of recreational trawlers: it’s hard to say. 26 meters long and powered by two 1550hp diesel engines, it can reach a top speed of 28 knots (cruising at 18) and is designed to berth at harbours too small to accommodate the bulkier barques of fellow plutocrats.
A luxurious interior includes 4 guest cabins (2 VIP), a master suite, various lounging and dining areas and a ‘wet bar’ beneath the enormous flying bridge.
Behold: the the 377-foot Oceanco Tuhura superyacht – inspired by the design of hollowed-out Polynesian canoes but fitted out in luxurious teak, gunmetal, and bronze with a hybrid Azipod CRP propulsion system capable of 18 knots.
Price on application.
