Blast From The Past | Yacht Shaped Like A UFO Controlled By iPad
There are some super yachts in the world and then there are some UFO looking super yachts that actually feel more like an Alien spaceship than luxury on the high seas! This is a multi million dollar super yacht that is out of this world. Fill it up once and you can travel the world from America to Europe. It's insanely good, it's insanely expensive and it's got state of the art everything on this wonder of the yacht world.
Here's one from the past, how long ago do you think this concept "spaceship yacht Adastra" was unveiled? Seriously, it was way back in 2012.
So it's already 7 and a half years old and I bet you that you've forgotten that you knew about this? It looks like a UFO or a USO, flying over the waters surface.
Looking at cool concept designs for super yachts may be fun, but nothing beats the real thing.
It took five years and $15 million dollars, but the ultimate seafaring vessel that looks like a spacecraft is finally here.
This is what it said when this was first show to the world way back then.
The Adastra superyacht is 140 feet long, weighs 52 tons, and can travel 4,000 nautical miles at 17 knots, enough to get you from the U.S. to Europe.
Designed by John Shuttleworth (links are all below) and constructed in China by McConaghy Boats, the Adastra can fit up to nine guests along with its six crew members or Aliens if need be.
All that and you can control the vessel from your iPad.
You can see more of the Cylon Raider of the sea in the images below.
Her owner, shipping magnate Antony Marden - who goes by ‘Anto’ - commissioned the boat from his friend John Shuttleworth and has been world - cruising on her ever since.
His experience abroad Adastra has been out of this world.
The next thing is fuel economy:
We can go across the Atlantic twice without refuelling, which is always good.
You go into the Mediterranean, you fill up with 30,000 litres of diesel in Gibraltar, and that’s pretty much done for the season.
Naturally, she is also a super - head - turner. Everybody, literally everybody takes a photograph.
It’s like living in a fishbowl.
In Italy, they’re a bit insistent, but you can always disappear down below.
