BEST OF LIFE
Luxury comes in all shapes and sizes, from supercars for revheads to hyperrealistic rings for queens of couture. Here are 12 options to consider when you’re feeling the urge to splurge
When the sea gets rough, eat saltines to settle your stomach, or so the old salts say. Better still, step aboard the Foiler from Enata Marine, a 9.5-metre hydrofoil that cuts through choppy water by skimming 1.5 metres above it at 40 knots (74km/h). This flying superyacht is anchored by four foils that keep her extremely stable and resistant to wave interference. Propulsion comes from two 320HP BMW engines hooked up to two generators and two electric motors. At cruising speed, the vessel’s 300-litre fuel tank gives her a range of 240 kilometres. The retractable foils are strong enough to support the weight of eight passengers in the boat as she flies above the water’s surface.With her sleek style and cutting-edge hull design, you don’t need to be an old salt to know she’s going to turn heads wherever she goes.
