WindRider Rave Hydrofoil Trimaran

The WindRider Rave is not your ordinary trimaran - it is a hydrofoil! How cool is that! This incredible piece rips through the water like nothing else.

Built by the same company, Rising Sun looks a little bit different from her counterparts Octopus, Carinthia VII and Pelorus; she has a majestic yet sophisticated look - the exterior was designed by Jon Bannenberg.

Added in Catamaran on the August 28th, 2006

Kelsall KSS Suncat 40

Kawasaki Jet Ski 800 SX-R

Added in Personal Watercraft on the August 24th, 2006

Kawasaki Jet Ski 800 SX-R

The Kawasaki Jet Ski 800 SX-R is probably the most best looking personal watercraft out there. Honestly, almost all the designs look the same. If we compare the design of watercrafts from Kawasaki, Bombardier, Honda and Yamaha we can see that they are nearly 100% identical. Except for the Jet Ski 800 SX-R of course.

It has a more streamlied design and aerodynamic contours. Its futuristic looks is a late departure from the boring standard of personal watercraft design. It probably has the golden ratio in its proportions, the front of the watercraft is proportionally larger than previous designs, and the extra space at the back has been reduced with the seats neatly curved back to the watercraft�s rear edge.

As drawbacks, we should note that the Jet Ski 800 SX-R is actually a stand up watercraft. It is considerably smaller than the heavy 3 seaters, and therefore cannot accomodate more than 2 riders. The Jet Ski 800 SX-R has a 782cc engine.

Added in Yacht on the August 24th, 2006

Mirabella V, the Largest Single Masted Yacht / Tallest Mast in the World

Mirabella V is a single masted, super luxury sailing yacht. It has the tallest mast in any yacht in the world, the craft itself is huge compared to a big racing yacht. It currently holds the Guinness World Records of the tallest mast and the largest sail.

The yacht is owner by Joe Vittoria, and it is available for charter for upto US$ 275,000 per week. The design was the result of the brainstorming by the designers to combine the luxury of motor yachts and the speed and agility of sailing yachts, in one big yacht. The designers then came up with the single mast solution as it would reduce the hassle at the same time giving extreme and flexible sailing power. To reduce weight the designers chose to use composite boat building materials.

Mirabella V�s mast reaches up to 292 feet (88.5 meters) from water level. When the keel is fully dropped, the draught is 32 feet. The sail is the largest in the world and the size covers 1,833 m2 / 19,730 sp ft. She is 246 feet (75 meters) long (LOA) and 48 feet (14.8 meters) wide (beam) and has a displacement of 740 tonnes when fully loaded.
