The fastest yacht in the world title goes to 'World is Not Enough' - Millennium 140, this luxury 42 metre (140') superyacht has a top speed of 70 knots. Designed by Mulder Design she is brainchild of John Staluppi and John Rosatti, built in 2004 by Millennium Superyachts.
The truly remarkable fact about the Millennium 140 is that she is the fastest superyacht despite her size, faster than any smaller superyacht in our 10 fastest yachts table. The typical speed for a superyacht of her size is between 20-25 knots. She is also not just a stripped-down 140 footer either, but a true luxury superyacht that is fully stocked with everything from statuary gensets to a state of the art audio-visual system.
The goal of the project was to design and build the fastest yacht that also maintained a high level of comfort at ultra-high speeds, this isn’t just a speed boat… it’s a luxury superyacht. To achieve this the aluminium superstructure is a lightweight alloy that gives an enhanced aerodynamic shape and stability at top speeds and her a progressive dead-rise V hull design gives the boat a form to cut through the water like a knife even in rough conditions.
She is powered by two Paxman 18-Cylinder main diesel engines offering a combined 10,870hp with an extra 9,200hp added by twin TF80 Lycombing turbines. All this power runs at 15,000gal fuel capacity and can journey to around 3,800nm.
The result is a powerful superyachts that offers minimum noise levels, no vibration and a ride that is not only exhilarating but comfortable at cruising speeds in excess of 50 knots.
