Adastra - Jonno Oakey
The 42.5m Adastra is a three-hulled made-to-order vessel styled by UK yacht designer John Shuttleworth. He was tasked with combining "offshore seaworthiness, comfort, economy of operation and shallow draught". Equipped with the latest and most advanced technology, the superyacht belongs to Hong Kong shipping magnate Anto Marden. Adastra's shape has been specially developed to cut through waves as it glides across the high seas. She can even be controlled remotely at the touch of an Ipad as long as you are not further away than 50 m.

Spaces of the yacht were created to be the closest to the sea and what she can offer, without any hindrance. For the exterior design, A Group has worked on a dynamic and the beautiful silhouette without any compromise.The green technologies are also an important part of the project. The creators were closely monitoring the development of hydrogen fuel cells for the project. In addition to batteries for peak shaving and waste heat-recovery systems (for heating the swimming pool and hot water), which are already proven, the yacht can have an all-around efficient energy production and storage system.Her well-engineered hull form and sleek design made of lightweight materials (to reduce propulsion requirements) remain the most effective way to control the environmental footprint of the yacht.The hybrid solution for reduced consumption also makes it possible to redistribute space on the boat, offering the best place of the boat for guests.Comète can accommodate fourteen guests in seven cabins. Her top speed is 16 knots. Credits: A Group

At the La Spezia shipyard, Sanlorenzo is starting construction on the first unit of the superyacht 57Steel, which aims to be one of the new stars of the Sanlorenzo range; she will be equipped with a hybrid diesel/electric engine system. A sophisticated superyacht with an extreme cleanliness of form (something all Sanlorenzo ranges have), she is distinguished by a straight bow, providing an image of importance and decisiveness. The new 57Steel is an ambitious project, the result of intense typological experimentation carried out by the shipyard together with Studio Zuccon International Project, which has led to the creation of a 56.70-meter-long yacht with five decks and a tonnage of 1000 GT.The volumes doubled compared to the 52Steel, which have made it possible to offer indoor and outdoor spaces that are decidedly out of the ordinary for a model of this size and with unprecedented functional content.The innovative layout alters the traditional balance on board: the wheelhouse area, normally forward of the upper deck, has been relocated to an additional deck – a real bridge deck, as on larger yachts – thus making it possible to use the upper deck from a different perspective. This is where the owner's cabin is located, a 54-square-metre space overlooking the very large owner's deck, a private deck from which to enjoy an exclusive view over the infinite sea.The new layout has also made it possible to create a spacious full-beam VIP cabin forward of the main deck that can be used as a second owner's cabin. "The versatility of use that distinguishes the spaces on board is a key element of the 57Steel, which makes it possible to satisfy the many requests of a diverse and multicultural market like that of superyachts,” says Bernardo Zuccon. “A model in which there is no ostentation of the brand and whose external lines are defined and extremely fluid, transparent and clear, in which the language of the shipyard shines through. We can define the 57 Steel as a skilful balancing act between content and container.”The swimming pool, with its transparent floor, allows the passage of light into the environment below; the beach area is 110 square meters. The garage is placed at the bow and can accommodate tenders of up to 7.5 m and numerous toys.Sanlorenzo was founded in 1985 in Viareggio by yacht builder Gionvanni Jannetti. In 2005, Massimo Perrotti became the majority shareholder in the shipyard. Sanlorenzo builds yachts ranging from 28.60 to 62m in length. Credits: Sanlorenzo

The owner is now ready to cruise the Mediterranean.Morning Glory is the first of six Perini Navi boats to be launched this season. The remaining five are currently undergoing refits at the Lusben facilities in Livorno and Viareggio, planned for delivery to their owners in the coming weeks.Lusben, with over 60 years of experience in the yacht refit sector, boasts facilities at which know-how, organization, attention to detail, and hospitality make up the foundation for the company philosophy.

"In the case of the Sea Coral 2, we enriched our experience working closely with the designer chosen by the owner and the professional support of Hot Lab design studio," he adds."Having carried out many prestigious projects in some of the most beautiful places in the world, such as Saint-Tropez, Paris, Formentera, Val d'Isère, Casa de Campo, etc. I had no doubts about accepting the task of working on board an Arcadia A105," says Alain Perrier, the owner's designer. “If there is one yacht that makes a difference, it is this one: low on the water, with a sleek profile and a modern design. The Arcadia A105 represents the art of experiencing relaxation, comfort and safety on board an exceptional yacht. That's why I wanted to preserve the spirit and concept of the shipyard, while adding the owner's personality through the decor."The open aft cockpit on the main deck is openThe living hall on the upper deckThe inner bow area of the main deck could be used either as an office or as a second VIP cabinThe large living area at the centre of the main deckAnother view of the main living area on the main deckOne of the twin guest cabins on the lower deck, where the entire sleeping area is locatedThe full-beam owner's cabinThe reverse view of the owner's cabin highlights the TV’s central position: the owner’s access to the bathroom is to the right, while the door to the left leads to the walk-in wardrobeAfter the first few months cruising in the Mediterranean Sea, Sea Coral 2 has crossed the ocean and is now in the Caribbean.
