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.

Kubbar For A Swim

Got walk up just before noon, and someone on the other saying we are heading out on the boat, get up, get up. I slept late catching up on some episodes and relaxing the night before planning to sleep in a bit, and the weather forecast was to be a dusty day, but they were so wrong. I jumped in the shower and changed into my swimsuit and headed straight to Koot. Food check, Drinks Check, iPod Check, Everyone onboard check,

Around 1:30 pm we headed out of the Port heading towards Kubbar at full speed, a few things went flying as usual but it was a very comfortable ride. It was a bit windy but the waters are always calm around Kubbar Island. Its been a while since I went to Kubbar Island so I was really forward to it, the water is always nice around there, and this time we brought a few floating toys to use while in the water. Music blasting, Ceasers tiny pizzas and some drinks made for a very quick ride. We passed by a few oil and natural gas tankers on the way there, those things are huge, I mean bigger then buildings, we are tiny right next to them and this isn’t a small bought, it really is a moving island.

20-25 mins and we got to Kubbar Island, luckily there were no more then 20 boats parked around the island and everyone stretched comfortable apart. Some people on the island bbqing, some people swimming, some people snorkeling, and the best part is the amazingly cool water. Being in the sun when we stop is a bit hot so we jumped right into the water, it was amazing, the sensation was fantastic. I always jump right in, sinking into the water, enveloped by this cool and shocking feeling, its refreshing. I know I’m out of shape because I can swim for a little while and when I’m out of breath I just float, but it feels good to move.

We saw a few friends there and we were having a blast. The Kuwait Coast Guard passes by every once in a while but they don’t seem to be bothering anyone. I got in a dingy and started the engine after almost pulling my arm trying to start the damn engine, and as soon as I got it start two of us went for a stroll around the parked boats. At full throttle that dingy is slower then a turtle but still a lot of fun, and when we were two heavy guys the diny was taking in some water so we had to be careful. The water was perfect, it was so much fun to get out and a complete change.

XSMG XSR48 Speedboat

I’m not much of a boat person, but I do like being in the water. This boat can be considered a speed demon on the water, the XSR48 Speedboat from XSMG, its a 48-foot boat packing a 2000 bhp two bi-turbo diesel engines, making it a very fast machine with a stablization and propulsion system meant to handle this insane amount of power. No price has been specified but I know this has to be pricy when its out. And the interior is just as mondern and nice as the exterior with all the bells and whistles of modern technology.
