Hong Kong Tatler - - Boats -

The “E” in the name stands for evo­lu­tion, be­cause this mem­ber of the award-win­ning Maxi Open Mangusta fleet has been ex­tended by a me­tre and given more ag­gres­sive styling at the di­rec­tion of its owner. Be­fit­ting a Bond bad­die, the boat is named Moon­raker.

The rocket as­so­ci­a­tion is apt when you con­sider the per­for­mance of this 50-me­tre triple-en­gined master­piece. It will hit 40 knots, mak­ing it the fastest ma­chine here.

The in­te­rior is sump­tu­ously con­tem­po­rary, with a grey-and-black colour theme, soft fur­nish­ings, 15 kinds of wood, 10 dif­fer­ent mar­bles, in­clud­ing the eye-wa­ter­ingly ex­pen­sive blue tiger eye, ex­otic leathers and other hand­some ma­te­ri­als.

The five sky­lights over the dining room ta­ble help make the yacht at home with its en­vi­ron­ment. The four state­rooms sleep eight guests, and Moon­raker can ac­com­mo­date a crew of nine. The gen­er­ous deck ar­eas in­clude an out­door bar, Jacuzzi and am­ple space for en­ter­tain­ing. There is also a range of wa­ter toys on board, in­clud­ing two jet skis, four sea scoot­ers and scuba gear—for when those 007 fan­tasies take hold.

Moon­raker is avail­able to char­ter from US$217,000 a week.
