    Like its closed-top sibling, the Hedonist Open (www.artofkinetik.com) is 62 feet long and achieves a top speed of 48 mph, courtesy of three MAN r6 800hp engines paired with three Rolls-Royce water jets. The all-mahogany-hulled craft, by Serbian manufacturer Art of Kinetik, stows a three-person tender that can be launched using the boat’s built-in crane. Amidships is an open-air lounge, and the area belowdecks can be made to include two or three cabins, a small galley, and a shower. The vessel requires 12,000 hours of sanding to prep it for its 18 layers of varnish—thus the wait between ordering and delivery is at least a year.
