Hedonist Yacht

This gorgeous boat by Art of Kinetic has a hull crafted from mahogany and glass, and cruises quietly through the water at up to 40-knots, thanks to its Rolls Royce water jet propulsion.

I’m not a big boat enthusiast but I know when I see a thing of beauty in front of me, and this machine is a work of art. The creators called it The Hedonist, I don’t know how they came up with a name like that for a but like this but it is one sexy machine. Don’t let the pictures fool you, this is one very big boat and very fast for its size. I love the highquality combination of wood and glass to construct this beast, I would probably drop my jaw if I saw this in front of me in the water, I’m also assuming it probably costs a good fortune, some where 8 figure range.

Mercedes SLS Cigarette Boat

Cigarette is a high speed racing boat manufacturer who make some very mean and fast machines. It’s basically those insanely fast boats that you see in Movies, and most the time its just the stickers and not the real boat. A Cigarette starts at around $300’000 and can easily reach $2’000’000 depending on the size and options of the machine. Now they have made special edition 46 foot Cigarette as a tribute to the Mercedes SLS with all the bells and whistles that you would attribute to German engineering. With 1350 horsepower at your finger tips this is one very fast and scary machine, there are few in Kuwait and I have heard them pass by, a simple was to describe them is loud, mean, and insanely fast.

Jumping Right In

After a long 17 hour flight then one stop in Dubai, then another 1 hour and 45 minute flight to Kuwait a person would be tired. But the prospect of getting into Kuwait’s lovely blue waters got me right out of bed and ready to jump in. I wasn’t going to miss getting in the nice cool water for the day, and getting some burgers in doesn’t hurt either. Out of the whole summer that day was the smoothest possible waters I have seen in a long time, it was crisp and amazing. As soon as we got to Kubbar I just jumped right into the water which wasn’t cold or hot, it was perfect, I was expecting it to be colder but it wasn’t. Lots of people around, and we even saw one small boat topple over because it had too many people on one side, then the Coast Guard dragged it back to the bigger boat and tried flipping it back but we didn’t know what they did at the end of the day. We had our burgers and went for a fun swim before heading home, and after that swim I got a really good nights sleep, a total of 11 hours before waking up the next morning.

Yas Island Yacht Club

Everything about Yas Island has been planned perfectly from the hotels to the track, and all the other possible venues around it. Now they are building others services and infrastructure outside Yas Island with so much to do. I have yet to visit there and I honestly can’t wait. But nobody has really mentioned the Marina which has the view of the F1 circuit when your parked in your boat. They sell the yacht parking spots for the F1 just like they sell normal ticket seats but with a closer and better view. They have really thought everything out with this setup, I just can’t imagine how much the yearly fees are to park a boat there.

The Yacht club has sparkling white exterior shells integrated with LED façade lights which transform the giant structure into a pixilated viewing screen against the night sky. The 5 star club houses restaurants, bars, lounges, function rooms, outdoor decks and 45-metre observation tower.

The Maltese Falcon

Now this is a definition of a super yacht, at 289-ft the Maltese Falcon is the world’s largest and most expensive sailing yacht. I’m not one who is that interested in Sailing yachts but this is not an ordinary yacht, with technology integrated into every corner. Especially that mast system which can propel the yacht across the Atlantic in 10 days. Even the cockpit of this ship reminds me of the bridge on the Star Ship Enterprise from Star Trek, at a moments notice it will take warp into space with all those buttons and cool seats.

I do like the interior of this beautiful ship, I don’t even know how many rooms it has and how many people it can handle but it is amazing for sure. And it was for a low price of $99 Million, I’m just curious as to fees of parking this behemoth.

Wet and Wild Desert Kings 2 Jokers

I was just reading through Uptill1.com and I came across the new Desert Kings 2 Jokers video, this time its wet and wild. This is from the drivers of GulfRun, seems like they are keeping themselves busy this summer and some of those water tricks would cause me a ridiculous amount of pain. The editing and production work is from Negativeffects, just as great as the last video, these guys were really riding the wake. I was wondering what they were doing when I saw them out by the water, now it makes complete sense.

Now with all these cool videos, I want to see some more work, maybe some more action in the water. My favorite parts are always the bloopers, there had to be a few of them in water, keep up the great work.

The Outing

What a weekend, we had a week of pure dusty to a decent Thursday and Friday, I couldn’t wait to get into the water and we did at last. It was a perfect day, some waves but nothing we couldn’t deal with. The best part is that there wasn’t too many people in the water so this time around there wasn’t too many jetskis or boats in the water that we have to get around and it wasn’t as hot as last week.

As soon as we got to the haalah, or little island just at the tip of Al Zoor, some of the guys jumped out to relax at the beach and some wanted to go swimming. One of our friends passed out and he is a heavy sleeper, so most of the other guys decided to bury him. The swim was perfect for most of the day, and we did have a lot of fun this weekend, bumming was at the top of the list.

Overmarine Mangusta 165′

A 165′ boat or a building on water is now available for sale. I’m not much of a boat person but this mamoth is ridiculous. 4/5 Guest Staterooms which are basically sweets, and lots of other guest rooms not including the crew rooms. You would need a crew of 7 and some with a Doctorate in Mechanical Engineering to operate this amazing beauty. These controls of the boat are insane, you need to a pilot’s license to be able to control it, there are so many joysticks I can’t even tell where the throttle is, but those captain seats look really comfortable. The outdoor seating is amazing, you can really live for a while on a yacht such as this. So does anyone have $42,000,000 to spare to purchase this Mangusta?

Usually boats of this size that I have seen online have these tacky looks to them but this one seems to look very nice. Not the usual green and gold, but this time its a nice wood furnishing and I like the dining area. Its practically bigger then most homes, I would whats the cost of filling up the tanks of this machine.

Sea Phantom

seaphantom1.jpg

This is one insane looking machine! It travels extremely fast on the water surface with a full fledged suspension system to cushion the ride correctly while going are triple digits speed. Usually on water your banging against the water especially at highspeeds, it gets a little rediculous. So they have developed this 5 seater which seems to do an amazing job of just skimming over the water and making it seem effortless. Its not on sale yet, but they might be employing for the Navy Seals. And they currently developed it with an inboard engine.
