Meet Adastra – The World’s Most Beautiful Yacht

We present you the latest project of John Shuttleworth Yacht Designs. They named their latest piece of art Adastra. Adastra is actually a 140foot (42.5m) Trimaran. The boat was first revealed in China where it was built at McConaghy Boats Zhuhai Facility. There was a client for this boat before it was even sketched living in Hong Kong. He wanted a big boat for long range ocean cruises.

As you could see this is not just a boat, this is a real piece of art – specially designed for one family to meet their life style and to provide the necessary level of comfort. It seems that the client was a very experienced ocean voyager as the designer had to meet a lot of his needs. The initial planning and sketches took a lot of time but everyone wanted to create a unique yacht of such class and size.

We could only say – fantastic work. Before the real yacht was built there were a lot of radio controlled models tests. This way the designers made sure to analyse in deep details the stability and performance. The shape and height of the height were then revised in order to achieve better motion at sea and ncrease stability in waves and stormy weather.

The yacht is ultra light. At least the designers made everything possible to reduce the weight in order to achieve very low fuel consumption. When it comes to fuel consumption the vessel is equipped with Alfa Laval system for cleaning the fuel. The yacht comes with 6 men crew as it could get 9 guests on board. It could sail with 22.5 knots and could cover a 4000 miles range at 17 knots. If cruising at max speed the displacement is 5000 litres fuel – 64.8 tonnes.
