When we hear the word yacht it takes our minds to an image of luxury, opulence, style, and class, but nowhere does it say it absolutely should. Sometimes such boats are built with more specific purposes in mind.
Such is the case with today’s vessel, which is a 280 feet (85m) explorer superyacht called Project Globalfast. The looks have taken a departure from gorgeous swooping lines, alfredo living areas, and lounges. This superyacht with its triangular windows has an overall aspect more akin to a military cruiser or destroyer.

However, the looks are not the only thing that’s tough about this boat. If you buy an explorer yacht, then you probably plan on doing at least some expeditions around the world. For that, you need a design that can go far and can withstand any sort of weather you might encounter on your Gulliverian travels. Designer Espen Øino has managed to achieve just that, with much of the exterior styling being borrowed from its predecessor, Bold. One notable change is the switch from a dull gunmetal grey to an icy white that looks much less utilitarian in nature.

Project Globalfast has a few other tricks up its explorer sleeve. The main highlight is the hull, which is a highly efficient design and it allows the superyacht to achieve a top speed of 23 knots (26 mph / 43 kph). Thanks to twin MTU engines it can also achieve a cruising speed of 18 knots (21 mph / 33 kph) and a range of 4,500 nautical miles (5,180 miles / 8,334 km).

With all the talk about utility, it would seem that not much attention has been given to the interior, but that is far from the truth. The owner gets a full deck spanning the entire 36 feet (11-meter) beam that not only has a private lounge and dining area, but also a winter garden. While not as luxurious as we would see on some other floating palaces, they are certainly more than cozy.

The guests have not been forgotten either as seven guest staterooms are located on the main deck and they can accommodate up to 18 people with direct access to the 1,290 square feet (120 square-meter) aft section. However, they will find that a helipad has taken the place of the usual jacuzzi or swimming pool.
