Like something out of a James Bond movie, the Superyacht Adastra has been designed to get you where you’re going in 007 style. Thank you Ms Monneypenny.

The 42.5m trimaran can comfortably cross both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans at high speed with a range of 19,312 kilometres at 10.5 knots and 6437.4 kilometres at 17 knots. It might take you a smidge longer but a trans-ocean commute on the Adrasta beats a 16 hour long haul flight in cattle class any day.

The deck and superstructure is constructed from carbon fibre with Nomex honeycomb core, the hull is glass/kevlar foam sandwich and the interior is light weight oak cabinetry using honeycomb panels. To help reduce weight further, virtually every aspect of the boat is custom built. This includes carbon fibre hatches, portlights, ladders and even the old throne.

Inside, the vessel boasts a large lounge, dining room, spacious galley, sofa bar area, an expansive master cabin, two roomy guest cabins as well as accommodation for six peasants, I mean crew members. Down below is a garage that can fit a small car and the door or the garage folds out to create a large dive platform. Of course.

Will set you back: They won’t tell us.

Top speed: 23.2 knots / 42.9 kph

Great for: Conducting missions of international espionage on the weekends.
