Hinckley Dasher Lets You Party On Open Waters Silently And ‘Greenly’

There are a lot of buzz in the area of electric automobiles, but boats? Not so much and we have absolutely no idea why. Having said that, in case you are in the market for one silent, eco-friendly seafarer, then you may want to check out the Hinckley Dasher Electric Yacht. Man. Let me tell you, folks. This thing is a looker! And it is, of course, fully electric – in fact, it is the world’s first fully electric luxury yacht, as the long-time yacht builder have claimed.

This Green Lamborghini Aventador Comes With A Matching Speedboat

An aircraft can go anywhere, but you can’t say the same for a car – even for an exotic, super fast car like the Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster. However, that’s only partially true if we are talking about the “run-of-the-mill” Aventador, not if you have the so-called Lamborghini Lovers “Ultimate SV Package,” currently on sale on James Edition. With the Lamborghini Lovers “Ultimate SV Package,” you’d be bagging yourself a highly customized 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster that only has 700 miles (1,127 kilometers) on the clock and in special order color of Verde Singh, but you will also be scoring a matching color and coordinated trim 2017 Marine Technologies “Mei” 52’ G6 speedboat, so your need for speed can continue even when the land ends.

Tirrenia Launches DC Superheroes-themed Ships, Starting With Batman

It is unlikely that Batman will announce his presence on a mass transportation system such as a ship and surely, billionaire Bruce Wayne won’t either, but for fans of this fictional crimefighting cape superhero/brilliant detective, it will be perfectly fine to be cruising on a classic Batman themed big-ass ferry like the Italy-based Tirrenia ship’s Sharden. In a partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and obviously, DC Entertainment, Tirrenia has begun decorating the sides of DC superheroes-themed Tirrenia ships. Work started earlier this year when Tirrenia’s ship, Sharden, had its sides painted with the classic Batman graphics.

This Powered Kayak Has Retractable Stabilizer So You Can Fish Standing

Standing fishing and kayak don’t mix for obvious reason, but when professional competition kayaks maker Fissot introduced the MFK003 Modular Standing Fishing Kayak last year, the game changes. For the first time, you can fish standing without worrying about unwillingly taking a dive. Balance has always been an issue with kayak if you try standing on it, but with the MFK003 Modular Standing Fishing Kayak’s ingenious design, fish standing is what you want to do – thanks to a pair of retractable stabilizers that can be deployed give the boat extra balance. Continue reading This Powered Kayak Has Retractable Stabilizer So You Can Fish Standing

MSC Cruises Unveiled Concept Image Of World’s Biggest Capacity Cruise Ship

We totally feel we should mention this big-ass cruise ship because, it is huge. Not super huge by shear size, though, but massive by capacity. The planned MSC Cruises’s new vessel will be able to pack 6,850 passengers across 2,760 cabins – 70 over current record-holder, Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas. Also, it looks absolutely futuristic too – thanks the “Y” shape superstructure that stretches the entire length of the ship. With this design, it does not have an open deck at the bow and so, sorry, no more iconic “I’m flying” Jack and Rose pose, folks.

This Sci-fi-ish Speedboat-Submarine Hybrid Piques The Marines Interest

Remember Hyper-Sub which briefly mentioned in a post couple of days ago? Yea. That’s the other speedboat/submarine hybrid that may have piqued the U.S.M.C’s interest. However, unlike the obvious made-for-military aesthetic of the SEAL Carrier, Hyper-Sub looks very much like a futuristic ride you would expect from a August Power or James Bond movie. It looks totally non-military and non-conventional as far as sub goes. However, what it has to offer probably begs to differ. Anywho, Hyper-Sub, along with many defense contractors, showed off its ware at the simulated amphibious maneuver at Camp Pendleton, dressed in tactical-approved black paint, back in April this year (read more HERE). Anyways, to cut long story short, Hyper-Sub is a ship-to-shore capable vessel that can travel undetected beneath the surface of the water in between.

This Speedboat Is Capable Of 30 Knots And It Is Also A 15 nm Submarine Too

In the recent IMDEX Asia 2017 in Singapore, defence contractors were again eagerly showing off their latest military hardware to entice governments from the world over. It seems like in this year’s show, marine-related technologies were in abundance (probably due to the maritime tension in this region) and among the sea of dark and light gray hardware, the JFD SEAL Carrier Swimmer Delivery Vehicle had most of our attention and for good reasons. As the product name implies, this dark, tube-like sea vehicle is designed with special operations in mind, but what the product did not explicitly point out is, it is actually a submarine/speedboat hybrid. Continue reading This Speedboat Is Capable Of 30 Knots And It Is Also A 15 nm Submarine Too

This Full-size Kayak Is Foldable And Weighs Less Than A Chihuahua

Imagine this: you are out exploring the great outdoor and you stumble upon a beautiful body that stands between you and the unexplored area. At this point, you probably wish you have a kayak with you. Then again, that’s just wishful thinking because if you had a kayak, you probably won’t make it this far. Life’s just so. It was never fair. It is either you have this or that, never both. Well, the good news is, that won’t be the case if you have the Justin Case Lightweight Foldable Kayak. Measuring no more than 30 x 4 x 4 inches (76.2 x 10.2 x 10.2 cm) and weighing no more than a Chihuahua at under 6 lbs (2.7 kg), it is probably the most portable kayak money can buy to date.

Ultraskiff 360 Proves That Round Boats Can Be As Adept As Regular Boats

If you recall, we made an editorial about a revolutionary, flying saucer-like boat from the 50s two years ago. In the post, we believed that the notion of a round boat was preposterous, simply because it defies hydrodynamic principles, or so we thought. We didn’t believe anyone would ever attempt to make a boat round, but as it turns out, we couldn’t be more wrong; a Florida-based company called Ultra Skiff Inc. actually did. So, yes, Ultra Skiff actually designed and produces circular watercraft, which it calls UltraSkiff 360 Personal Watercraft. Continue reading Ultraskiff 360 Proves That Round Boats Can Be As Adept As Regular Boats

Twin V8 Powered Seafaring Lexus Is Pretty But, Sadly, Won’t Be Produced

The Lexus Sport Yacht Concept you see here may not be as wild as the spacecraft the Japanese luxury automaker dreamed up for Luc Besson’s sci-fi movie, Valerian and City of a Thousand Planets, it is at least, more down to earth. Nearly two years in the development, Lexus Sport Yacht Concept is the brainchild of Lexus Marine Department and it was a bespoke one-off project with no production intent. This particular example, a running proof-of-concept, was unveiled at Di Lido Island on Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach, Florida, last week.
