One of the world's most amazing super yachts, that could spell the future for efficient long range cruising"
Boat International.The Adastra is so hi-tech that you can even control it with your Apple iPad within a 50 metre range.Its range is 4,000 miles, enough to go from the UK to New York in a single trip without refueling. With a length of 42m, it has a maximum speed of 22.5 knots, weighs in at 52 tonnes and has the capacity to host nine guests with room for up to six crew members. With her shiny body and smooth curves, this £15-million superyacht is a real wealth symbol.
Extensive structural analysis of all parts of the yacht has been carried out, initially by White Young and Green and later by ASTA. This was the only viable way to analyse a shape and structure as complex as this. Simulations of loadings from side slamming, wave impact, and torsional effects of the outrigger riding through waves, were all applied to the computer model.
