    The Adastra yacht features a streamlined, lightweight design and low fuel consumption.

    English based boat designer, John Shuttleworth Yacht Designs, has come up with a stunning yacht that can be remote-controlled by an iPad.

    Named, Adastra, the designer stated “No effort has been spared in the challenge to produce a beautiful yacht that has exceptionally low fuel consumption and yet provides excellent sea keeping qualities and luxurious accommodation.”

    The ship launched in April of 2012 and it was created for Hong Kong clients. The streamlined design and slender hulls allow it to travel faster in open ocean waters.

    The yacht’s structure is extremely lightweight, mostly comprised of carbon fiber with Nomex honeycomb core. Every detail inside of the ship was custom crafted to reduce to load. Portlights, ladders and toilets were created by carbon fiber to reduce the weight.

    A 16 meter beam allows for a viewing area on the main deck, complete with a panoramic window. There are accommodation areas for the yacht crew along with three cabins onboard.
