Super yacht Adastra: a $42.5m Power Trimaran

Described by Boat International as “one of the world’s most amazing super yachts, that could spell the future for efficient long range cruising”, the striking 42.5m Trimaran Adastra is currently under construction at McConaghy Boats in China. This one-off trimaran designed by John Shuttleworth is being built for Hong Kong clients Anto and Elaine Marden for the small fee of $42,500,000.  A real bargain!

"Adastra" is the result of more than 5 years of design and discussion with the owners, to build a yacht that meets the needs of a very experienced ocean voyaging couple and their family, and to provide the level of comfort and style that would be expected in a yacht of this class and size. No effort has been spared in the challenge to produce a beautiful yacht that will have low fuel consumption and yet provide excellent sea keeping qualities and luxurious accommodation.
