That is the Millenium 140 "The World Is Not Enough".

Kind of rediculous for a yacht that size to go that fast......IMHO

I went on board "The World Is Not Enough". Great piece of engineering. I was told they got up to 67 knots so far but that turbines were not giving full power and that they were planning modifications on the hull right after the show. They are expecting 70+ knots (80+ mph). She is powered by two Paxman 18-cylinder diesels @ 5340hp. each and twin TF40 Lycoming turbines @ 4600hp. each. This requires so much air that the yacht has a forced air intake across the whole transom, with an emergency shut down system in case of following seas. I wish they put a sofa in the engineroom because this is where I'd spend most of my time while on board.

However, the interior is junk. Everything is mounted on a nomex core and while this is done to save weight, it looks cheap. All cabin doors are only 3 lbs. and it shows. It just lacks the substance expected on a 140' superyacht. Beyond that feel, the fit and finish is far from perfect. And the interior decoration looks like it was done by Donald Trump. Lots of gold, translucent plastics, Versace fabrics... Not worthy of a US$ 23 million asking price.

Unfortunately, most people with that kind of money will prefer to buy a displacement yacht of that size, made by a reputable Italian or Dutch builder, which will be finished to superyacht standards and much more comfortable underway and at anchor. Because a shallow draft, light displacement and three decks is a perfect recipe for heavy rolling at anchor. And if they feel the need for speed, they'll just have an Outerlimits or whatever as a tender.
