My husband and I don’t usually do much for Valentine’s Day, but I think I’ve been selling myself short all these years. Who needs chocolates and flowers when you can have a superyacht - a superyacht with iPad control to boot?
The Strand Craft 166 comes with five staterooms, a bar, hidden Jacuzzi deck, a retractable flybridge and a garage … oh, and in the garage comes a car. (Excuse me, a supercar.) The car also comes with a built-in iPad that reportedly lets users view the engine and repair details within the control app. The Stand Craft’s iPhone app provides such home-control (yacht-control?) features as lighting, climate, and LED 3DTV and audio system control.
The app also has security features, although I would think that a $50 million boat would require some kind of superbutler to keep watch over the place.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
