Adastra boat

With a 16meter beam, a garage door, and a helm station, Adastra is a deluxe five-diamond hotel voyaging around the seas.

It won’t be wrong to say Adastra is a luxurious yacht meticulously designed for the affluent and well-heeled by the renowned multihull designer John Shuttleworth. The designer made sure of providing all the luxuries with low fuel and power consumption acing the idea of sustainability and it is seen in the designer’s way of stickling for accuracy.

Adastra takes the efficient power trimaran concept to a whole new level by stripping out the conventional vessels such as Earthrace.

3. Gibbs Aquada Amphibious

Gibbs Aquada

Ever since the advent of high-tech mechanization, amphibious cars have been a topic of debate, until the arrival of Gibbs Aquada. If we were to nominate the best car rowing gracefully on water, we would always choose Gibbs Aquada. 

You must remember the car floating on water in GTA San Andreas, flawlessly? Seems like Gibbs Aquada’s concept is inspired by the former video game. Besides, the Gibbs Aquada is fun to drive either on land or on water.

Gibbs Technologies takes pride to introduce the only successful amphibian car whose interior looks like a posh sports car, while the exterior paints the picture of an exotic boat.

This luxury boat is a blend of powerful features such as 15 whooping gallons of fuel capacity with dihedral trims and bilge pumps. However, Gibbs Aquada is designed with no doors to prevent leakage.

So if you can afford either a boat or a car, why not choose both and give Gibbs Aquada a go?

4. Aurora-6 Submarine

Aurora-6 submarine

Submarines are known as one of the marvelous discoveries of ancient times being used in wars, scientific research, and whatnot. Who would have thought of riding a submarine casually for adventures and other explorations?

With Aurora-6, riding in a submarine with the family minus the navy uniform is now a dream come true. Aurora-6, as the name suggests, accommodates 6 people (5 passengers + 1 pilot) covering the maximum depth of around 1000m and this is by far the coolest submarine boats in the world.

The view outside the submarine is enhanced and enchanted by diverging the excess hatch to a different compartment rather than the windows and it can tilt at the surface while boarding which makes it one of the unique boats. 

The Aurora-6 submarine is equipped with leather seats and cup holders to cater to the comfort of the passengers, offering a solid, straight back stern designed to dock to support yachts at the surface securely.

5. Scubacraft Convertible Boat

Scubacraft Submersible

In movies and action games, you must have witnessed an unusual boat diving deep in the sea and then emerging out rowing gracefully on the sea surface. Well, who would have thought they can own one in reality, as well?

A yellow watercraft, that too is submersible and reaches the depth of over 100 feet. What do you reckon of it? A submarine? No, it’s a scuba craft!

Scubacraft is an odd yet genius boat that qualifies as both; a submersible and a speed watercraft with an engine running at a speed of 160hp. However, like the actual submarine, the scuba craft is not pressurized and so the hull is not fully encased like that of the real submarine. Therefore, the people riding this awesome submersible boat must wear scuba gear.

Scubacraft is one of the most versatile and the least expensive submersible as compared to its other competitive submarines, having some kick-ass features such as multiple dive capability, underwater communication system, onboard GPS, etc.

6. Kormaran K7 Transforming Watercraft

Kormaran K7 Transforming Watercraft

Kormaran K7 is the unbeatable beast when it comes to enumerating the coolest boats in the world. A luxurious watercraft that can operate as a catamaran, trimaran, monohull and a hydrofoil making history in the marine industry.

One bizarre feature of Kormaran is its ability to transform into the sea, even in motion. So, if you’re stuck at point Nemo and up for some lazy sunbathing, transform your boat into an island in the middle of nowhere to enjoy basking in the sun with much comfort and ease.

Hot Tub Boat

Imagine hanging out with friends, sharing drinks and all smiles in a giant Hot Tub Boat. Sounds like a dream, right? Well, not anymore!

Hot Tub Boats are fancy and sturdy boats made for a terrific experience while you relax soaking up in the water. Powered by dynamic electric motors and steered by a simple joystick over the starboard side of the boat, these exotic boats are exquisitely crafted for the common, fun-loving people.

However, the concept of motor Hot Tub Boats is based on the contemporary inflatable tubs that float on water. Besides, these boats move faster than the inflatable ones with speeds of up to 6 knots. 

These boats can accommodate around 6-7 people with some awesome features such as built-in dry storage and a pair of coolers to keep your drinks cold.

8. PlanetSolar Solar-Powered Boat

PlanetSolar

With the rise of green technology, the world is yearning for sustainability and so is the watercraft industry. To serve this purpose, a Swiss eco-adventurer Raphael Domjan introduced one of the coolest boats in the world named PlanetSolar that works exclusively on solar energy.

PlanetSolar is undoubtedly Raphael Domjan’s biggest work, inspired by J.R.R Tolkien’s reference to the Sun’s immaculate energy and force in his famous novel “The Lord of the Rings”.

The 100 feet long, 50 feet wide and 25 feet high catamaran is the world’s largest solar-powered boat that depends solely on solar energy the whole time it stays in water with an estimated average of 20kW engine consumption and accommodates around 400 people on board.

The yacht proved out to be so powerful yet energy-efficient that it qualified for the Swiss foundation race for water, and it opened doors for further future inventions relying on renewable energy and resources.

9. MY Ady Gil (Earthrace) Yacht

MY Ady Gil

Owning a yacht doesn’t always have to be about sleek and stylish designs, MY Ady Gil, previously known as Earthrace, is one of the weirdest boats to date which outdid the traditional yacht designs.

With a speed of about 32 knots, a length of 78 feet, and a beam of 23 feet, the main aim of My Ady Gil’s designer was to ensure the superior speed of the yacht without compromising on its overall performance in the water.

MY Ady Gil is a trimaran (a triple hulled yacht), however, this strange boat is also doubled as a submarine enabling it to function even at the depth of 7 feet under the water surface without affecting the speed of the yacht.

The most noticeable factor of MY Ady Gil is its ability to function on two types of diesel; regular diesel and bio-diesel, therefore, the trimaran is powered by two 540 hp Cummins Mercruisers engines, one for each type of diesel.

10. Jet Capsule Mini Jet Yacht

Jet Capsule

What happens when you cross-breed a jet ski with a cool boat? Yes, you get a Jet Capsule.

The Jet Capsule is graced with photochromic windows to change their transparency with respect to light intensity and a fully customizable interior with a small kitchen to light the candles for your party, cozy beds on which you can sleep in comfort and a sundeck so you can bask in the sun!

The motor installed in the Zebra wooden boat is electrical and powered by the combustion engine or wind sails, and this provides a silent form of propulsion. So the Zebra electric boat is ideal for the silent sea riders.

12. Galaxy of Happiness Yacht

Galaxy of Happiness

Who said cruising around the seven seas has to be boring and tedious? Well, if you think it is, you probably didn’t notice the Galaxy of Happiness.

Galaxy of Happiness is the trimaran where you find grace and tranquility, both, and when it comes to efficiency, accessibility, and stability, the galaxy of happiness stays true to her name!

Keeping naval architecture and efficiency in mind, the designer of the mighty trimaran was truly inspired by Adastra which is evident from the space-craft exterior of both the trimarans. Of course, there’s much more in store for the Galaxy of Happiness than for Adastra such as the efficiency and the majestic interior.

The Galaxy of Happiness is a hybrid-powered trimaran, outfitted with electric engines that can be driven by the generators to successfully deliver a silent mode at the speed of six to eight knots for several hours.

The interior, however, is like a five-star hotel draping in a high fashion where the huge upper deck of the trimaran is divided into two decks namely; the main deck furnished with sofas, sun pads and a long dining table that seats 12.

The saloon is spacious yet styled elegantly and has a bar at the corner. The windows and skylights are LCD glass and dimmable.

Just like for flying above the land you need an airplane, similarly, for flying above the sea level, a Hydrofoil boat would suffice!

Hydrofoil boats are nothing new to the present-day technology, however, as a matter of fact, the efficiency and features it offers now vary in performance of the conventional boats. A Hydrofoil electric boat is a four-legged yacht whose legs protrudes from the sides and raises the yacht out of the water when traveling at speed and thus reduces drag.

The electric Hydrofoil is an unusual, personal boat designed for two persons and allows to adapt the driving style according to your preferences. Due to its highly efficient battery-powered electric motor, it doesn’t produce noise and other harmful emissions.

With your body above the sea surface in an electric unsinkable, we bet there is nothing as adventurous as riding Quadrofoil. So, get your hands on this cool boat to experience one of the best adventures of your life.

Just like the land vehicles use suspension to isolate the road shocks, Nauti-Craft’s crazy boat separates the deck from the hull via hydraulics to combat the harsh jolts and pitches of choppy waters.

The technology offers several features addressing the needs for suspension in the market such as it provides the self-leveling and auto-adjustable options for different load conditions and sea states and the hydraulic interconnections provide beneficial functionality without requiring power when underway or at rest.

16. U.S. Navy Landing Craft Air Cushion Combat Boat

Landing Craft Air Cushion

If something is used by the US Navy, it must be of high caliber. Landing Aircraft Cushion is not your everyday, fancy boat, rather it is used as the landing craft by US Navy.

The Landing Craft Air Cushion vehicle is used to transport the weapons, personnel and other military equipment from ship to shore and across the beach.

It is a high-speed watercraft that is fully amphibious and carries a humongous payload of around 60-70 tons. The feature that qualifies this amphibious watercraft as the US Navy asset is its ability to reach over 70 percent of the world’s coastline, however, the average conventional landing craft can reach about only 15 percent of that land.

17. Hyper-Sub Submarine Boat

Hyper-Sub Submarine Boat

Hyper-Sub Submarine Boat is one of the world’s coolest navy approved speedboat that leaves no room for imperfections!
