Swedish superyacht builder Strand Craft’s new 38m (124ft) open yacht will be supplied with an 880hp V12 supercar, capable of 233mph, housed in the stern garage.
Capable of 55kt, the Strand Craft 122 will be powered by twin MTU 4,610hp diesels and one Vericor TF50 gas turbine producing 5,100hp.
Kurt Strand, Strand Craft’s founder, says: “We have had a lot of interest from all over the world, specifically the Middle East. It was designed for luxury and for people who want the best.
“The custom-made supercar is the best feature, both the boat and the car are very high performance and the boat is very fast.”
With 14,000hp on tap, the Strand Craft 122 should hit 50 knots, say its builders.

The Spanish brand Marin LuxurYachts, which belongs to the shipyard Factoría Naval Marín successfully undertook the technical launching of its first two megayachts with steel hull in early March 2009. The first of those vessels is a 40 metre long luxury cruiser and the second one is a 42 metre long schooner of classical inspiration. This beautiful sailing-ship, called Elena, has been commissioned by a British owner. The shooner is a replica of the vessels that competed in the America’s Cup in the late 19th and in the early 20th century. It is a tribute to sailing. The design of the original classical vessel was done by the mythical Nathanael Herreshoff, known as “the Wizard of Bristol”, and considered to be the father of modern yacht sailing. Elena will participate in classical regattas, but with all the interior comfort of a 21st century vessel. The Spanish shipyard Factoría Naval Marín will launch these first two vessels in a major event which will be widely publicised and which will be held in the late summer of 2009. Among other projects, FNM is building the largest sailing ship ever built, Hussar, which will be 136 metre long.
