Serbian luxury yacht producer Art of Kinetik has recently launched its latest pleasure boat for the summer season. Named Antagonist, the vessel is a sleek wooden model that features clean elegant lines that are reminiscent of the 60s and 70s. With its deep wooden hull and a top speed of 42 knots, this speedboat is not only fit for a Sean Connery-era James Bond, but it’s impressively powerful.

The 37-foot (11-meter) open weekend cruiser is powered by two diesel-fueled Yanmar engines, offering a cruising speed of 33 knots. The vessel’s design includes an unusually large open cockpit, featuring a multifunctional table and room to accommodate up to eight passengers. There is also a spacious area for sunbathing and a built-in swimming platform. Below deck resides a large air-conditioned interior with storage space, bathroom, cushioned seating and wooden work bench.

The pilot’s chair took over nine months to engineer and features an ergonomic design that is coupled with a storage space that conceals a refrigerator and picnic box. All exterior seating is furnished with Xtreme Maritime leather by Boxmark, chosen for its resilience against UV rays, salt water, suntan oil and insect sprays.

Pricing for the Antagonist has yet to be published, but we’d expect it to come with a hefty one. Nonetheless, this luxury cruiser is going on the wish-list!

Stunning workmanship and joinery. How many new wooden dayboats/tenders do you see these days?

I'm concerned however, with the companionway steps down to the salon. Unless I'm looking at it wrong, that first step is much narrower than the rest. After climbing aboard that beautiful swim platform, imagine the nasty strike to the tailbone when your wet feet lose traction on those slippery steps. Very dangerous.
