Luxury Code X Yacht 1

For the green-minded with a large bank account, here’s a nice new toy to play with… Dubbed “Code X”, this luxurious yacht packs a set of Ilmor Formula One engines that thump out 710 hp allowing it to tear the waves at 80 knots.  If you’re not in the mood for speeding and are more interested in a leisure trip offshore, there are two electric motors that get their juice from the on-board solar panels and help Code X to cruise at 9 knots on open water. Featuring a GPS-controlled “Virtual Anchor” system that will keep it stationary regardless of the wind speed or water current, Code X also includes touchscreen controls and a Kevlar/carbon shell with phototropic-shaded screens and windows.  This new 47′ 7” catamaran mixes style and cutting edge technology in the best possible way.
