The Tech-Infused $15 Million Superyacht

The award-winning Adastra launched in 2012 is an effort by Shuttleworth Design to create an upscale and comfortable yacht that fit the needs of an experienced (and extravagant) voyaging family. The result was a jaw-dropping display of modern design — an innovative 42.5-meter superyacht that features cutting-edge technology and a striking, futuristic look. As the original owner and his family bring their voyaging days to an end, the spec’d out superyacht isn’t getting much use anymore and in July 2019, it was listed for sale. Check out photos of this gorgeous, one-of-a-kind vessel, built for the adventurous and experienced sailor.

The World's First Underwater Hotel

Hilton has opened what it is calling the world’s first underwater hotel in the Maldives, a small tropical nation in South Asia. The price tag of $50,000 a night covers the use of a personal chef and a private boat. The real draw though is the dreamlike views of the Indian Ocean that you would be able to get from your bed, 16 feet below sea level. Of course, the whole dang thing isn’t underwater; that would be ridiculous. The top floor of the two-story villa features a relaxation deck where you can get some sun, as well as some other amenities that you might expect to find at a luxury resort, including an infinity pool, a bar and a gym. The villa is connected by a jetty to Hilton’s Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort, another above-water property. Continue on to see some of the views — both above and below water — that you could take in at this one-of-a-kind hotel, dubbed the Muraka.
