Dragonfly: Built by the Australian firm Hanseatic Marine and launched in 2009, this power yacht is noted for its sleek silhouette and innovative conception by naval architect Espen Oeino, as well as its stylish interiors by the Munich-based firm Silvestrin Design.

Commissioned by German eco-industrialist Guido Krass and originally christened Silver Zwei, it was sold and renamed in 2011.

Dragonfly: The interiors have been given a chic 1970s vibe, with glossy wood finishes and luxurious white leather sofas. Outdoor features include dining spaces, a Jacuzzi, a large sundeck, and even a helipad on the foredeck of the ship.

The fastest long-range superyacht in the world, the boat is ideal for covering vast distances and is able to navigate tight spaces that most other vessels its length cannot.
