She’s capable of a maximum speed of 18 knots from her 6,200 hp twin diesels.
The yacht has a cruising speed of 14 knots with a range of 10,000 nautical miles at cruising speed. She is in fact classified as a Commercial Research Vessel by Lloyds, enabling her to gain access to some marine reserves and other areas normally off limits to regular yachts.
