If you thought that you had seen everything when it comes to luxurious sea liners, the Adastra Superyacht just may change your mind.

Despite its massive size, the ship is made from lightweight materials and can be controlled with the touch of a button—so long as one has an iPhone or other iOS device and is within 164 feet of the vessel.

Commissioned by Anto Marden, a billionaire in the Hong Kong-based shipping industry, the opulent ship is worth a whopping $15 Million US and measures 139.5 by 52.5 feet. The builder of the boat, Chinese native John Shuttleworth, incorporated opulent accommodations for up to nine people with additional space available for the crew.

Each cabin boasts ample leg room and is equipped with a sauna, steam bath and whirlpool. It can speed along at 22.5 knots and boasts impressive fuel economy and range.
