yeah your right mat it was, I think most of it was carbon fibre inside as well including the loo seat, making it so light it could achieve 70mph or something silly like that

They do a range of tenders too - very snazzy although you really have to be into minimalism to love this type of thing. The yachts are spectacular.Some talk of a 55m power boat!

It is incredible just how big a market there is for luxury yachts etc.

In the early 1990s there were 500 superyachts in use - today it is over 10,000. Many British boat builders have steadily moved upmarket - people like sunseeker actually sell more of their 1million+ boats than they do the cheaper ones!!!
