Why Adastra is the Coolest Yacht on the Market

A striking design

With a striking silver exterior and an unusual trio of hulls, Adastra turns heads wherever she goes. Her eye-catching design made her a show favourite at this year's Cannes Yachting Festival and she's set to cause quite a buzz at the Monaco Yacht Show too. Now listed exclusively for sale with Burgess, this intrepid explorer is looking for an adventurous new owner to take the helm. Here’s why Adastra is the coolest yacht on the market...

Part superyacht, part spaceship, the 42.6 metre Adastra was custom-built by McConaghy Boats and delivered in 2012. This futuristic trimaran came from the drawing boards of British designer John Shuttleworth and went on to win a coveted Neptune for the most innovative yacht at the World Superyacht Awards in 2013. Her owner had four key requirements for the build: offshore seaworthiness, comfort, economy of operation and a shallow draft.

An intrepid explorer

While she may not look like your typical explorer, Adastra was made for adventure. She boasts an impressive range of 10,000 nautical miles and can cross the Atlantic twice before needing to refuel. Perfect for island hopping, a shallow 1.2 metre draft allows her to access hard to reach anchorages and shallow bays too.

Adastra is also incredibly lightweight. Her three hulls are constructed from an e-glass and Kevlar foam sandwich, while her deck and superstructure are made from carbon fibre with a Nomex honeycomb core. This makes her super efficient when cruising, so you can spend more time exploring and less time refuelling.

Power comes from a single Caterpillar C18 1150hp main engine and two Yanmar 110hp outrigger engines, for a top speed of 22 knots.

A city loft-style interior

Adastra's Scandinavia-meets-Asia interiors were penned by Jepsen Designs and resemble a city loft apartment, with white woven fabrics and beachy blue and white soft furnishings. Light honey oak and a semi-gloss white paint maximise light throughout the yacht, while an occasional brushed stainless-steel trim reflects her silvery exterior.

Her 16 metre beam makes for a more comfortable and stable crossing, so guests on board can enjoy the open-plan living spaces to the fullest. The main saloon benefits from large wrap-around windows with skylights over head, while below, extra space has been created by flaring the central hull above the waterline. She can sleep up to nine guests in three cabins, comprising a full-beam master cabin aft and two doubles, with further accommodation forward for up to six crewmembers.

Outdoor living

There are two key spaces for soaking up the sun on board. The foredeck is accessed through the main saloon and features a large sun bed that can be shaded with an awning suspended from carbon-fibre poles set into the deck. In the evenings, guests can retreat to the aft deck and dine al fresco, come rain or shine, thanks to a hard top bimini and a set of sliding covers.

Further aft, there's stowage for a 4.8 metre tender, with room for a second tender on deck.

This unique offering is perfect for prospective owners looking for something a little out of the ordinary. Her name comes from the Latin 'Ad Astra' meaning "to the stars" which seems fitting for a superyacht that is truly out of this world.

Exclusively for sale with Burgess, Adastra is asking asking $12,000,000.
