A new 15-million-dollar yacht that looks better suited to the sky than the sea can be controlled by an iPad.


With her curved 'wings,' long pointed nose, just a few square meters of the vessel touched the water surface, allowing it to skim across the waves.

The innovative design, along with high-tech features like an iPad-controller, helped the vessel ' Adastra' win three prizes at last week's prestigious ShowBoats Design Awards in Monaco, including Best Naval Architecture, CNN reported.

Billionaire shipping magnate Anton Marden is believed to own the 42.5-meter vessel, which took more than five years to design and build.

The Hong Kong-based magnate and his wife Elaine can remotely control their luxury yacht from up to 50 meters away, simply by sweeping their hand over an iPad.
