The title of fastest superyacht in the world is a hotly contested one, with yards and owners going to extraordinary lengths to outdo each other.

Astro by Baia Yachts is the first name on our list and her power is immediately recognisable, even when moored up, thanks to a sporty decal on the transom which depicts her triple 2,430hp MTU engines. Refitted in 2015, Astro now features interiors by Milan-based studio Hot Lab.

Builder:Baia
Length Overall: 31m
Propulsion: Triple diesel engines
Maximum Horsepower: 7,290hp

Adler II has been shrouded in secrecy since her launch in 2005. Her predecessor was a 36 metre Baglietto built in 1987 and capable of reaching 40 knots with her central gas turbine.

This new Adler is some five metres larger with a composite construction by Vector Marine. Her two Paxman engines work with her twin waterjets to generate a combined output of 10,500hp, pushing her to a top speed of 50 knots. Her highly aerodynamic, futuristic design is by Gary Grant.

Length Overall: 41.45m
Propulsion: Twin Waterjets
