High tech luxury yacht Adastra

High tech luxury yacht Adastra

The Adastra, unveiled in China earlier this year, is the new floating pleasure palace of billionaire businessman Anto Marden who commissioned its construction five years ago.
Designed by Sussex-based yacht designer John Shuttleworth, the Adastra is so high-tech, it can be controlled remotely at the touch of an iPad… as long as you don’t get any further away than 50 metres.

The yacht has a futuristic look with a glass & Kevlar foam hull with carbon fiber composing the rest of the super yacht to make it lightweight.  The carbon fiber continues to the boat hatches, portlights, ladders and hinges and for fuel efficiency, a fully automated fuel management system has been installed for fuel cleaning and lowered consumption.

ADASTRA yacht is a beautiful trimaran yacht with excellent sea keeping qualities, luxurious accommodation complimented by low fuel consumption. The superstructure of Adastra is carbon fibre with Nomex honeycomb core, whereas the hull is Glass/Kevlar foam sandwich. The cabinetry in the interior is light weight oak using honeycomb panels. Virtually every aspect of the boat is custom built, including the carbon fibre hatches, portlights, ladders and even hinges, which are all built specifically for the vessel.

A SiMON2 integrated ship monitoring system monitors fuel, security, pump sensors, electrical, lights, etc. Motor Yacht Adastra has a fully automated fuel management system, including an Alfa Laval system for cleaning the fuel.

Superyacht Adastra also features a unique anchoring system with three anchors driven by carbon fibre winches run by hydraulics. The primary is a custom 130kg Bruce style anchor that deploys out of the startboard wing. The second anchor of 80 kg deploys out of the bow with a carbon fibre arm. A 60 kg third anchor deploys out of the port wing and is used as a stern anchor.

John Shuttleworth designed Yacht ADASTRA offers accommodation to 9 guests in total and has a crew of 5-6 professionals.

She has a 4.9 metre tender stored on the aft deck and a 3.1 m tender stored in the garage. Adastra motoryacht is powered by one main Caterpillar C18 1150ho @2300 rpm engine and twin Yanmar 110hp @ 3200 rpm outrigger engines. Her maximum speed is 22.5 knots and she has a 4000 nautical miles range at a lower speed of 17 knots.
