Though the name may be cheesy, the Superfly GT 42 is undoubtedly shaping up to be one of the yacht industry’s most buzzed-about boats in recent times. Set to launch at the Cannes Yachting Festival, the gorgeous yacht features a glass-enclosed cockpit, a helm station cool enough to be in a sci-fi film, owner’s cabin and powerful engines that boast more than a whopping 1,880 horsepower. The cockpit’s windows are complemented by tall wraparound windshields and a huge glass-ceiling panel, while the helm station comes with the latest and greatest in gears and technology and a touchscreen for easy control.
Red Yacht Design designed the super-cool Superfly, which is built by Flying Flipper. But don’t let the name fool you: the Swedish firm constructed and competed in numerous record-setting superboats throughout the 1990s. The boat’s stateroom is connected to the cockpit, and the impressive room features a king-size bed, skylight and two rear windows facing the stern, all with stunning panoramic views of the water to boot. Forward from the stateroom are a galley, saloon and adjoining bathroom. The bow’s stateroom is equipped with a sunroof and big-screen TV for entertaining guests, providing for ample social and dining spaces.
In addition to the many elegant amenities and high-end technology, the Superfly’s huge horsepower makes it one of the fastest yachts out there today. One of the reasons for why the GT 42 is so powerful? Its triple Seven Marine 627 hp outboards allow the boat to exceed 65 knots, making the Superfly a performance powerhouse.
