The Ultimate Luxury Yacht

With another cash-gobbling Christmas on the horizon it's fair to say that most men's finances won't quite stretch to a lavish yacht. But that doesn't mean we can't press our noses against the metaphorical shop window and gaze lovingly at items targeted exclusively at the stupidly rich.

With that in mind, we give you the jaw-droppingly gorgeous Hedonist yacht from elite nautical designers Art of Kinetik. Deftly mixing the old and new, the 19-metre boat is made from mahogany and ply using time-honoured construction techniques.

The streamlined lines have been put together meticulously - no screws or bits of plastic are visible on the exterior - and below the deck three Rolls Royce engines make it capable of a blistering 40 knots. The interior is not too shabby either, with the seats alone taking six months to make.

It's an incredible boat with a fittingly huge price tag: one of these bespoke models will set you back a hefty £2.1million. But a gawp at the gallery above will cost you precisely nothing.
