Floating houses are symbols of tranquil and peaceful lifestyle on the water. Superyachts, the play-toy of the mega rich, are the ultimate symbol of material success.

The superyacht Adastra is a new floating home built in Hong Kong.

Controlled by iPad and iPhone, life support systems and all your tasks are managed with the contemporary technology.

Adastra is a huge trimaran created by designer John Shuttleworth built for Anto and Helen Marden. The length is 42 meters, the width is 16m, and the weight is limited to 52 tons, which creates an elegant contemporary yacht. The maximum speed is 22,5 knots (about 42 km per hour), and the fuel in the tanks allows to cover 4,000 miles (6,500 kilometers), enough to crass the Atlantic ocean.
