World is not Enough

World is not Enough was built by Millenium Super Yachts, a company set up by American businessmen John Staluppi and John Rosatti in 1998 to build the fastest and most beautiful yachts in the world. Designed by Dutch naval architect Frank Mulder, World Is Not Enough is the only yacht to have reached 70 knots. She is propelled by two Paxman diesel engines and two Lycoming gas turbines, producing a staggering 20,600hp. But she is not just about speed - her interior, designed by Evan K.

Alamshar 65 knots | 2008 Great Britain

Alamshar

This yacht has been kept a closely guarded secret but we understand that she has been developed to include the very latest gas turbines. This unique propulsion system which so far has not been employed on any other yachts is to give the yacht exceptional performance, providing the capability of speeds up to 65 knots. With no less than 6 gas turbines and 3 water jets she must be one of the most advanced superyachts ever produced. Due to this new technology she has undergone an extended development programme with several sea trials, which is why, despite the secrecy, she has been spotted several times before disappearing into the covered facilities in the yard.

  • Builder: Devonport (now managed by Babcock Marine)
  • Length Overall: 50m

Gentry Eagle 64 knots Great Britain

Gentry Eagle

Gentry Eagle was built by the late Tom Gentry, who set nearly every powerboat speed record in existence.

In 1989, he and a crew of five including his son, Norman Gentry, set a record time of 62 hours & 7 minutes beating Richard Branson's previous record by an astonishing 23%. Gentry Eagle was relaunched as a yacht in 1992.

The 118 WallyPower's sleek design is the result of an extensive R&D program that included water tank testing at the SSPA facility in Goteborg, Sweden, and wind tunnel testing at the Ferrari facility in Maranello, Italy. The iconic yacht 118 WallyPower is driven by three Vericor TF50 gas turbines, each driving a Rolls-Royce Kamewa water jet. The exhaust system is made of titanium that saves weight while being very resistant to the high temperatures generated by the gas turbines.
