Italy’s ISA Yachts has done the unthinkable with the company’s latest luxury boat, equipping it with two hybrid water-jet engines.

Specifically, the new yacht, called Silver Wind, is the first in the world to use water-jet propulsion driven by a hybrid diesel-electric system.

Silver Wind’s unique marine diesel engines reduce maintenance costs and fuel consumption, not to mention, enable the boat to hit a max speed of 32 knots.

At 141 feet long, the yacht is easily able to cruise at 26 knots and features a saloon located on the main deck, a sundeck, as well as a VIP stateroom and three additional cabins on the lower deck.

Silver Wind is capable of sleeping ten guests total and features an exclusive owner’s cabin for whoever is rich enough to buy this insane thing!
