The Adastra, one of the most beautiful, and most expensive yachts in the world made her debut to the world on April 13, 2012 by independent journalist Matt Blake.
Boat International magazine said Adastra 'could spell the future for efficient long range cruising'.
The yacht has an integrated ship monitoring system, and can even be controlled with an Apple iPad within a 50-metre range.
Adastra is powered by one Caterpillar C18 engine of 1150hp at 2300 rpm and has 2 Yanmar 110hp @ 3200 rpm outrigger engines.
Adastra's 16-metre beam features a saloon area on the main deck with a lounge area, dining table, and navigation station.
The owner, Hong Kong-based shipping magnate Anto Marden, whose uses for her may include - among other things - gliding between the two tropical islands he already owns off the coast of Indonesia.
