Here’s the latest plaything for the super-rich – a giant three-hulled yacht that cost £15million to make and would fit as comfortably in outer space as it would on the open sea.

Described by Boat International magazine as ‘one of the world’s most amazing super yachts’, the 42.5metre-long Adastra is a floating pleasure palace equipped to entertain a billionaire with even the highest of standards.

She is the the new pet of Hong Kong-based shipping magnate Anto Marden, 64, and his wife Elaine, whose uses for her may include – among other things – gliding between the two tropical islands they already own off the coast of Indonesia.
