The SC 122 – You Only Live Twice

Published on August 14, 2013 by   ·   1 Comment

If, at any point in your life, you have thought of channelling your inner James Bond and buying a boat that would not look out of place in one of Ian Fleming’s more outré adventures, then the SC 122 represents the perfect opportunity.

This visually astonishing boat looks like the fastest sports car in the universe and, as the perfect gift for the person who has everything, an SC 122 would be hard to beat since the craft’s unique selling point is that it comes equipped with a free supercar.


Creators Eduard Gray (of Gray Design) and Kurt Strand (of Strand Craft) have pulled out all the stops to ensure that their yachts set the standard that all other luxury, high performance marques would like to reach.

With the help of NEDSHIP, a Turkey-based marine construction company which has an excellent record of delivering high-end products, Gray and Strand have created a series of boats all of which reflect the team’s key criteria of beauty and speed.

As befits a luxury superyacht, the SC 122 is powered by two 4,610hp 16v Rolls Royce engines that are capable of generating a top speed of up to 50 knots.  The hand-crafted supercar employs a twin-turbo V12 engine to generate 800hp, is capable of reaching speeds of up to 230mph and is housed in a special stern garage as tender.

Outside, the SC 122 might be all clean lines and space age cool, but inside the designers have called on an earlier, elegant age to create an extravagant Art Deco ambience.  Apart from the generously proportioned reception and salon areas, the yacht includes four large double staterooms all with en-suite bathrooms and comfortable crew cabins.

Strand Craft and Gray Design have also teamed up with manufacturers of high-end electrical items to fit all of the rooms with 52” LED TVs and Bang & Olufsen sound systems, further extending the luxurious impression.


The SC 122 is the perfect accompaniment to the rest of the Strand Craft, which already consists of 40, 50 and 60 metre superyachts in the shape of the SC 133, SC 166 and SC 199 respectively.  All of the Strand Craft yachts also feature a special launch system that allows the supercars to be delivered on land straight from the on-board tender garage.

It is very difficult to deliver a product that will appeal to the jaded appetite of the average billionaire, but the SC 122 certainly has more than its fair share of va-va-voom.

Retailing for around a cool $25mn US, only six of these superyachts will be made, so hurry to secure yours while stocks last.

  1. I’d like to get the free car first, then after a few years if I like the way the car handles, I’ll get the boat later. Any problem with that?
