If the X-Men or any other self-respecting superhero team had a luxury yacht, it would look like the Silver Fast. Designed and built by Burgess Yachts, the 253-foot
To give you an idea of just how fancy this yacht is, many of its promo pictures have a Mercedes-Benz S-class Cabriolet riding atop its bow. Naturally, the boat also features a helipad and eight-person hot tub. It also reaches a top speed of 27 knots (that's 31 mph for you landlubbers).
The boat has room for 18 guests and 18 crew members. The yacht also has room to host a 20-person dinner party. The boat was designed by Espen Oeino, and the inside was handled by Vain Interiors.
It's also the star of its own promotional music video so fancy it would make the University of Miami's Delta Gammas jealous.

SHOW ME HOW
The boat is the star of the Yachts Miami Beach Show, which was formerly known as the Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show and runs concurrently with the Miami International Boat Show. The Super Yachts Miami portion is a new addition and is the first marquee event to be held at the Island Gardens Deep Harbour Marina on Watson Island. Altogether, the show will be displaying yachts worth a combined $800 million. Unfortunately, the show isn't open to looky-loos — it's by invitation only.
The Super Yachts show brings a new dimension to Boat Show week. Previously, the main show area along the Indian Creek Waterway wasn't able to handle boats quite so large.
