07 September 2016

Glider’s Super Sports (SS18) yacht is designed with speed, style and luxury, capable of reaching a 0-60 acceleration in just 3.5 seconds.

The SS18 is engineered and built in the same custom-made manner found in current private jets or F1 cars. It is crafted in the UK from advanced marine composites and the finest materials, incorporating a spacious cockpit for the pilot and four passengers 10ft above the water. 

The SS18 glides across the water on 60ft long twin hulls with power coming from four 270hp Yamaha waterjet engines.  The basic model allows for easy access to safe, controllable power capable of reaching 56+ knots at all times. For thrill seekers, the 3400bhp Hyper Sports version is available with sub 3.5 seconds 0-60 acceleration and a top speed of 96+ knots.

Prices have yet to be finalised but will probably sit around the £1M mark.
