Simon Cowell one of the X-factor creators can boast the holidays spent on the  gorgeous Slipstream super yacht. The owner of this 196-ft motor yacht is the chief of Australia's Hungry Jacks fast-food – Jack Cowin. The Slipstream was designed jointly by the experts of CMN and Andrew Winch Designs studio. Delicately shaped streamlined steel body of a black color strikingly contrasts with the aluminum topside performed in a silver tone.

With a width of just over 36 ft, the boat is extremely spacious inside. The interior is carried out in the style of neo-art. Australian and Canadian folk motifs can be seen in the finishing on the board. All the decoration elements such as wooden panels, texture, fabric patterns and even the trim items made of stone and glass feature sea theme, like swaying waves.


Three large carved wooden totems by the artist Stanley Clifford Hunt, placed in the foyer of the main deck, emphasize the national coloring of dining room decoration. The dark and red colors of the wooden finishing contrast with the bright white Tanami carpets and curtains.


A huge pool, spa, protected from the wind with the help of  transparent screen, bar and grill, dining table under a shady canopy, comfortable sofas and a solarium provide excellent relax and leisure time  to yacht's visitors. The boat is even equipped with a shower area that allows its guests to cool off immediately, without going down to their cabins.


Slipstream can host up to 14 guests. The crew consists of 15 people, including the captain.

Luxurious owner's suite occupies the entire width of the yacht's main deck and includes a bedroom, designed in contrasting dark, ocher and light colors, office, two bathrooms and an observation area overlooking blue waste of waters. VIP-cabin with a private balcony as well as a gym and a fitness studio are situated on the bridge deck. In the garage there are a lot of tenders: two 22-ft Nautica Rib, five personal watercraft Bombardier, crew boat and two kayaks.


Quantum stabilizers contribute to a smooth move. Equipped with two engines, CAT 3516B, Slipstream can reach a maximum speed of 17 knots, while the cruising range at a speed of 12 knots, with the fuel reserve of 139 000 liters amounts  6,000 nautical miles.
