370 GT Invictus Yacht

Wishlist: Truffle Slicer, Military Type Watch and Invictus Yacht

Nominated for the European Powerboat of 2017 award, the 11.4-metre 370 GT from Invictus Yacht is a unique vessel. With a submersible stern deck, a central deck that can transform into a sunbathing zone and an opening side platform which increases space on board, the 370 GT includes mod cons that are rarely found on boats of a similar size. Other design features include a reverse bow with lateral windows integrated into the hull and two large cabins. In terms of mechanics, the owner has a choice of inboard-outboard diesel engines: either a twin Volvo 300 hp or 370 hp Mercruisers.

‘Alba’ truffle slicer

Wishlist: Truffle Slicer, Military Type Watch and Invictus Yacht

Thanks to this elegant accessory, Dutch designer Ben van Berkel of UNStudio has transformed the act of truffle slicing into a culinary art form. Both ergonomic (its curved profile and 18-degree angle reduces pressure on the wrist) and stylish, the ‘Alba’ is cast in mirror-polished stainless steel. An adjustment mechanism allows the holder to vary the thickness of slices from 0 to 3 millimetres and its balanced weight distribution guarantees that you’ll produce the perfect slice.
