I ESTIMATE THAT, between 2015 and 2018, I packed and unpacked a suitcase no less than 200 times. I was travelling a lot in those days, mostly for work, and when that particular stint ended, I was determined to retire my luggage and stay on terra firma for the foreseeable future, if not longer. My undertaking worked reasonably well for a couple of years – although I did manage a couple of trips: visiting family, eating Italian food, scratching ‘drink a pint of Guinness in Dublin’ off my bucket list – but I can honestly say that I didn’t miss the rigmarole of travel. While I have always quite enjoyed airport lounges and the seemingly endless stories and vignettes within them – from the nervous, soon-to-be passenger to the frustrated business…

making waves

Guests will step into a water world while having their feet planted on the ground. Aqua At odds with its relatively unremarkable name, Aqua makes waves in the marine industry with both its slick futuristic design as well as its innovation. Fully powered by liquid hydrogen, the 109m superyacht concept is the work of Dutch design studio Sinot and Lateral Naval Architects, whose pioneering ecoconscious hydrogen propulsion system means longer, noise-free sailing with zero emissions at a top speed of around 17 knots. As its name suggests, guests will-step into a water world while having their feet planted on the ground. Aesthetically, the curved, streamlined exterior takes its cues from the swell of the ocean. Water cascades down a staircase from the aft deck pool towards the sea, while inside, the reflection…

Art In Horology What if we told you that you could erase time with H Moser & Cie’s new timepiece? In collaboration with Parisian artist Romaric Andre (alias seconde/seconde/), the Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept X seconde/seconde/is taking horological innovation to another level. With an hour hand in the shape of a pixelated rubber eraser, H Moser & Cie is taking the concept of erasing time rather literally. The disruptive element adds creativity whilst preserving H Moser & Cie’s class and elegance. It’s even more sophisticated beneath the hood, featuring the selfwinding calibre HMC200, which is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. Limited to just 20 pieces around the globe, the watch retails for US$21,900 and is only available online. Mad For Metamorphosis Bulgari has reimagined its iconic Serpenti through the eyes of Mary…

“It’s hard to tell the difference between sea and sky, between voyager and sea. Between reality and the workings of the heart.”– Haruki Murakami “LAST MARCH, YACHT dealers thought they were staring down the barrel of bankruptcy. But by July, they were the ones buying champagne and contemplating their greatest year ever,” says Richard Lofthouse. The Asia-Pacific regional co-ordinator at Catalano Shipping Services had witnessed first-hand how the expectations of dealers and brokers had swung from panic to delight in Hong Kong. “No one could have foreseen that the pandemic was going to be a stimulus for people to buy boats. They’ve been buying yachts like hot cakes.” Across Asia, yacht sales skyrocketed in the more mature markets, while local charters did roaring business. Indonesia is now one of the easiest parts of the…

Titanic Explorer, Triton Submarines It’s designed for professional use, but there’s no reason why you can’t have it on your yacht either – especially if you enjoy deep-sea exploration. Triton’s latest member to the team, the 13000/2 Titanic Explorer (from US$15 million), can dive up to 4,000m, 200m deeper than the depth of its namesake wreck. Unlike a supercar, its gull wings aren’t for you to enter or exit from. Instead, they aid propulsion, ensuring you remain in neutral buoyancy and away from the seabed. Cameras and lights are also fixed to the wings, allowing optimal surveillance without reflection. And don’t worry about getting too close for comfort; the Silent Glide feature enables the pilot and passenger to glide towards points of interest without disrupting marine life. EVO II, Autel Robotics DJI may…
