After first appearing to the world as a rendered prototype years ago, the Adastra Superyacht now cruises the open seas. This 140-foot trimaran yacht features an aerodynamic shape and a pair of water-anchored flying wings to cruise smoothly and efficiently.
At its economically-optimal cruising speed of 10.5 knots, the Adastra can consume as little as 4.4 gallons of fuel per hour. For a 15 passenger vessel (6 crew, 9 guest), that’s an incredible level of efficiency and it is all thanks to its futuristic aero/hydrodynamic design.
John Shuttleworth Yacht Designs pushed the envelope in the ship’s architecture, interior and performance, creating one of the most remarkable leisure vessels built in recent years. For its beauty and its efficient performance, we strongly salute their hard work.
Adastra is the result of meticulous attention to detail and innovative design to create 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 expected in a yacht of this class and size.
