The £17million yacht that comes with its own supercar

As far as freebies go, a luxury supercar has got to be near the top of the list.

But then if you're already forking out £17million for a 122ft state-of-the-art super-yacht, you wouldn't really expect anything less.

This ultimate 'buy one, get one free' offer has recently gone on the market attracting attention from billionaires all over the world.

But even if you could afford to buy the exclusive boat, you'd have to order sharpish, as the company are only making six models and has already attracted five possible buyers in the first week on the market.

The luxury yacht has a plush Art Deco interior, boasts four large, double state rooms, a reception area, salon, 52in LED TVs and state-of-the art sound systems in every room - all of which can be personalised.

And you will never be short of thrills as the ship can reach top speeds of 43 knots, with its twin MTU 16V000 engine, with the ability to achieve 55 knots with its optional Rolls Royce KaMeWa boosters offering a staggering 14,000hp.

But not to be outdone, the supercar, which is powered by a 880hp twin turbo V12 engine, has a top speed of 233mph.

You can even park your new car on board the impressive boat in its very own garage, located at the stern of the ship.

Founder of the Swedish company Strand Craft, Kurt Strand, said they had built the boat and car for the 'very wealthy'.

He said: 'We have had a lot of interest from all over the world, specifically the Middle East. It was designed for luxury and for people who want the best.

'The custom-made supercar is the best feature, both the boat and the car are very high performance and the boat is very fast.

'It is very unique and we are making it in limited numbers, so it's exclusive, we are only making six.

'It has a very futuristic design and nothing like this has ever been made before. It even has bulletproof windows.'

Mr Strand said that they would sell the duo on a first come, first served basis, and said the new owner would need to be wealthy to afford it.

'We have already had five people interested in it and we will have meetings with them next week,' he added.

'It's a very expensive boat to produce, it will be the most exclusive in the world.

'It's very good that this design has found so much interest from clients. I am very proud of it.'
