A highlight is the spacious flybridge, which offers al fresco dining and sunbathing backdropped by uninterrupted views. Additional al fresco lounge areas for enjoying cocktails outdoors while soaking up the sunshine are located on the aft deck and at the bow.
To up the ante, Fast and Furious offers Seabobs, Jet Skis and a 12 metre Seawater Smeralda chase boat for thrill-seeking guests to enjoy their time at sea.

Powered by three MTU engines boasting 2,600 horsepower each, Fast and Furious can reach a swift top speed of 42 knots for a thrilling experience at sea. Her cruising speed of 32 knots is also well above average for a yacht of her size – 21.72 knots above average in fact – making her the fastest charter yacht measuring over 40 metres on the market, according to her broker YPI.
With a nippy cruising speed and a shallow draft of just 1.3 metres, guests on board Fast and Furious will be able to make the most of their charter holiday by covering plenty of ground as they zip between the islands and coastlines of the western Med, able to anchor close to exclusive beaches, quiet coves and secluded reefs otherwise off limits to larger vessels.
