The luxury streamlined 42-metre trimaran Adastra caught the attention of the world’s press when it was unveiled in China by John Shuttleworth Yacht Designs Ltd.

It took five years for Adastra to be delivered to Hong Kong couple Anto and Elaine Marden, who commissioned a superyacht that could meet their desire for ocean voyaging with 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,” said Orion Shuttleworth, who collaborated on the exterior designs with John Shuttleworth.

Adastra takes the power trimaran concept further than has ever been attempted before.”

Weighing in at 52 tons, the vessel  has a maximum speed of 22.5 knots and a range of 4000 nautical miles. She can also be controlled form an iPad within a 50-metre range.

The trimaran was built by McConaghy Boats in Zhu Ha, China and the interiors were crafted by Jepsen Design.
