Kilkea is the name of a new luxury yacht under construction that will give the owner the ability to travel to all corners of the world.

The overall size of the vessel is planned at 270 feet categorizing it as a superyacht, but the engine design allows for very low fuel consumption and is truly groundbreaking. You won’t fall short on speed, though the travel speeds are planned to set at around 12 knots (22kph) with a vMax at 15.4 knots (28.5kph).
