Built to haul Hong Kong businessman Anto Marden and his lucky guests to and from his Indonesian islands, the Adastra Yacht ($15 million) combines luxury accommodations with the speed, fuel economy, and seafaring capabilities of a stripped down cruiser. Features of the nearly all-custom boat include a superstructure crafted from carbon fiber with a Nomex honeycomb core, a glass and kevlar foam sandwich hull, incredible on-deck lounging areas, a full-width master bedroom with full bath, two guest cabins, a massive Caterpillar C18 main engine cranking out 1150 hp, a top speed of 22.5 knots, and a range of 4,000 miles.

Is it a car? A helicopter? A plane? Actually, the Pal-V One ($TBA) combines elements of all three. This three-wheeled gyroplane drives like a sports car on the ground — with an 8-second 0-60 time and 112 mph top speed to prove it — but in just minutes, the single rotor, propeller, and rear wings extend, enabling the vehicle to take off and land in very tight spaces, while travelling up to 4,000 feet under the power of the flight-tested gasoline engine, and flying up to 300 miles away. Hitting the friendly skies near you in 2014.
