Luxury yachts take you far from the green velvet cloak of land and into the depths of the deep salt sea, days are spent plunging from the swim deck into the loving embrace of turquoise, afternoons Jet Skiing around jungle fringed bays, and sunsets kayaking out to watch the shimmering sky line melt into an oasis of gold and lavender. Yet for those who want to explore the far flung new lands their luxury yacht sails into you can select from an array of wild and wonderful off the beaten track toys to help you indulge your intrepid side. My Starfire sets sail for the sun soaked shores of the Mediterranean and the tropical ebb and flow of the cool Caribbean waters. When you aren’t indulging in a spot of perfect pampering at the onboard spa, sipping champagne in the hot tub or snorkeling alongside the onboard instructor, you can take this exciting array of toys out to tear up the lore of the lands.

Cycling away into the foothills of France, discovering tiny towns clinging to the cliffs of Italy, riding through dark and dense forests that flood the landscape of Croatia, and exploring lost plantations in the midst of the British Virgin Islands, these are all wonders to discover on your own bicycle. After your superyacht drops anchor in the bay you are free to take your beautiful bicycle out onto the land. The bespoke Le Flâneur d’Hermès is one of the most expensive two wheelers in the world with its touches of soft leather and its light, durable and versatile style. This is certainly the type of bike you want to be riding around the markets of Provence stashing wild roses, strawberries and wheels of cheese into the basket. The Fendi Abici Amante Donna is also simply breathtaking with its all leather accessories and fue saddle bags, this is the perfect choice for riding top speed along the cliffs of the Amalfi Coast or the sweeping fjord paths of Norway.

James Bond certainly knew how to do luxury yachts and he could certainly stir up the world both on and off the water. The amphibious quadski seems to be plucked straight from a Bond movie with its incredible off the beaten track capabilities. With its BMW engine this super speed vehicle can careen along the crest of the waves and then instantly transform to an all-terrain vehicle as soon as it hits the land. Soar through water, swampland, tangled vines, bush and briar as you tackle new levels of excitement and intrepid adventures far from the tourist traps. After tearing up the endless array of coastlines you can whizz back to the bliss of your luxury yacht My Starfire for a celebratory cocktail and soothing dip in the Jacuzzi.

From the tip of the crimson clouds to the depths of the blue sea, the flying hovercraft seems to prove that the future is here and now. This multi-millionaire toy from the masterminds at Hammacher Schlemmer can fly up to 20 feet above the ground and can hit speeds at 70 MPH. Whether on land, air or sea you can traverse parts of the world previously untrodden. Fly out from the deck of your luxury yacht to seek hidden pirate coves, climb mountains and hills that sweep across the landscape, and drift over the pure poetry of swamps, ice, fire and misty forests. With the capability of going as far as one hundred and sixty miles on a tank you can choose to traverse routes with a certain degree of spontaneity you are sure to have never had before.
