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.

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 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.

Foldable Canoe Turns Into A Rolling Suitcase For Traveling The World

With 70 percent of the Earth’s surface covered in water, it is safe to say that most places you travel to, there will be some sort of waterbody and that’s good news if you love canoeing. Well, actually it is not entirely good news because you can’t possibly lug along 16 feet of fiberglass or thermoformed or whatever it is made of, wherever you go – not unless you have the ONAK Origami Foldable Canoe. ONAK Origami Foldable Canoe is exactly what it sounds like – a canoe that folds down to a manageable size suited for traveling so that it can go wherever you go.

Earthrace’s New Conservation Vessel Is Part Frigate, Part Batboat

Earthrace is a conservation outfit that has been going around the world to stop illegal fishing, hunting and wildlife trading, and it uses a boat, trimaran boat aptly called Earthrace, as its base of operations since 2006. But the original vessel is outdated and besides, an unfortunate crash with a Japanese whaling ship back in 2010 leaves them with vessel. So, in order to keep doing what they do best, they need a new and updated ship and this is where Earthrace-2 Conservation Vessel comes in. Hearing the word ‘vessel’ may bring about the impression of it being a research vessel lookalike, however, as you can see, the Earthrace-2 Conservation Vessel is anything but. Continue reading Earthrace’s New Conservation Vessel Is Part Frigate, Part Batboat

Aston Martin Unveils The Company’s First Powerboat At Milan Design Week

Don’t ask why a luxury sports car maker like Aston Martin wants to make a powerboat. I guess the answer will be just, because they can. Teaming up with The Netherlands-based yacht designer Quintessence Yachts, the AM37 is the result of “years of research and development” which challenges “the status quo of the nautical world.” Well, we have seen the craziest boat ideas, so a boat that this beautiful is not uncommon – unless it is one that is both a boat and a car. But hey, it is an Aston Martin after all and you know what Aston Martin is all about? Continue reading Aston Martin Unveils The Company’s First Powerboat At Milan Design Week

This Massive Transporter Is 55 Times More Powerful Than A Bugatti Veyron

If you want to draw attention to your ferrying service, what’s better than pitting your ferries’ hard specs with a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, right? Well, that’s exactly what ferry and freight service provider Brittanny Ferries did. With a headline such as “55 times more oomph than a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse,” it will definitely some raise eyebrows. While the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse’s power plant has 16 cylinders, a typical Brittanny Ferries’ ferry has ’just’ 12 cylinders… but it has four of those 12s which puts out a grand 65,000 horsepower. Brittanny Ferries can’t help but to awe by its own ship, saying it has 64,850 more horses than an average car and “55 times more than of the most powerful production cars on the road today.” Continue reading This Massive Transporter Is 55 Times More Powerful Than A Bugatti Veyron

Mercedes-AMG And Cigarette Racing’s Latest Collaboration Has 1,100HP

Another year, another collaboration between luxury performance car tuner Mercedes-AMG and performance boat maker Cigarette Racing Team. Unveiled at the Miami International Boat Show over the weekend, the Cigarette Racing Team 41’ SD GT3 is inspired by Mercedes-AMG GT3 race car and is touted as the “most power ‘open performance’ boat to ever come out of Cigarette Racing Team’s yard. As before, this water-going GT3 borrows several elements from the land-going GT3, including colorway, design, and fittings.

Australian Tycoon’s $400 Million Titanic Replica To Set Sail In 2018

While modern cruise ships are leveraging on technology to keep guests entertained, Australian tycoon Clive Palmer, owner of Blue Star Line, wants to go old-school by recreating the ill-fated ship Titanic. Yes. You heard that right. Titanic is setting sail again and in all its original glory, right down to the three classes of cabins and the interior decor. However, unlike the original, the Titanic II, as it is called, will be built with 21st century technology to meet modern safety and design requirements, including welded hull as opposed to riveted one, diesel-electric system instead of steam engines, stabilizers, high-tech navigational equipment, along with modern-day evacuation system and of course, enough lifeboats for everyone onboard.
