Fastest boats: Technology revolving around water transportation has certainly evolved since its inception. While there’s nothing wrong with taking your time and enjoying the breeze, some people like to travel in style at a fast pace.

We would like to present you with a list of the world’s 12 fastest boats. The boats were ranked according to the best speed recorded.

The undisputable leader has a very befitting name: World is not Enough. This vessel, which is the only yacht that has managed to reach a top speed of 70 knots, has a mind-blowing horsepower of 20600. Propelled by two diesel engines and two gas turbines, this is one super sleek boat. The World is not Enough also features a futuristic design and a luxurious interior. While there might be racing type boats out there that can outrun the vessels listed in our countdown, our top 12 focused more on yacht type boats. The boats on our list are not only fast, but they are also quite luxurious.

Over at the other end of our countdown, we have a tie for the 12th place between Mirage and Shooting Star, both with a top speed of 50 knots. Launched in 2008 by builder Baia, the Mirage is propelled by twin screws and generates a horsepower of 7,290. Launched in 2011 by Danish Yachts, the Shooting Star is not only a super fast boat, but it also comes complete with a unique and lavish design. The Scandinavian like interior design features maple and leather.

Apart from World is not Enough, Mirage, and Shooting Star, highlights also include Moon Goddess, Sun Ark, and Gentry Eagles, in a style similar to our coverage of the world’s fastest growing companies.
