Glider Yacht Super Sports SS18

It’s not equipped with the biggest deck, but the Glider Yacht Super Sports SS18 makes up for it with a forward-thinking design that puts the boat high above the surface of the water. Glider achieved this thanks to a unique wing system that glides through water at the base of waves, avoiding the choppiness of conventional boats that are thrust up and down as they necessarily and helplessly ride on top of wave peaks. This technology coupled with very low drag lets the SS18 hit speeds of over 56 knots (64 miles per hour) with absolute stability and comfort as well as high manoeuvrability. Power is supplied by four 270-horsepower supercharged engines linked to underwater jets that run fairly quietly, but if a combined 1,080 horsepower isn’t enough for your tastes then the upcoming 3,400 horsepower Hyper Sport HS18 — which will go from 0 to 62 in under 3.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of over 96 knots (110 mph) — should be.
