Zeus Twelve Series
As megayachts continue to grow, so do the amount and array of toys owners want at their disposal. Multiple tenders, helicopters and PWCs are becoming commonplace, but a matching tender, sports car and motorcycle? Not until now.
Sporting an almost metallic-white color scheme with dark and gold accents, the trio of vehicles with windswept rakes is known as Zeus Twelve, named after the most powerful Greek god, who controlled lightning. The series will incorporate electric propulsion, and 12 represents the maximum number to be built.
The tender, dubbed Avalonne, is designed to serve double duty. At 41 feet, it’s small enough to fit aboard a mega-yacht yet large enough to sleep four guests overnight. Able to accommodate eight guests above deck comfortably, the craft’s primary purpose will be ferrying guests ashore, which designers predict it’ll be able to do at 40 knots. A retractable canvas top will keep guests and crew dry in the event of spray-inducing chop or an afternoon storm.
The Thorium is an electric-powered motorcycle whose color scheme matches the other craft, but the machine is in a class all its own. Its designers predict an hour of charging will provide a range of 171 miles and a top speed of 102 mph. For more “quiet” days ashore, the Scionne sports car will get you from point A to point B at speeds of more than 145 mph, and its Lotus Elise chassis should ensure a smooth and comfortable ride.
They say money can’t buy happiness, but then again, they have probably never seen the Zeus Twelve series.
