Fiercest Super Yacht in the World


What a sleek-looking yacht! Adastra was born after five years of design and discussion between a Hong Kong couple and West Sussex-based John Shuttleworth Yacht Designs. Very experienced at voyaging the ocean, the couple wanted to create a trimaran that was designed for efficient long range cruising. The super yacht boasts a maximum speed of 22.5 knots and can cover 4000 miles at a range of 17 knots. It also provides a level of comfort and style that would be expected in a yacht of this class and size.

Every part of the boat is custom built to make it light weight. The superstructure is made of carbon fiber and the hull from Glass/Kevlar foam. The vessel has a fully automated fuel management system, including an Alfa Laval system that cleans the fuel for efficient performance.

A saloon area is located on the main deck, which offers superb panoramic views and accommodates a lounge area, dining table and navigation station. The master's cabin is located toward the stern, while two guest cabins, and accommodation for the crew are located below the deck. Adastra offers comfortable accommodation for nine guests and up to six crew members.
