Glider Yachts launched a round of funding for its latest Sports Limousine model. The SL24 is powered by four common-rail diesels and has a top end of 56 knots. Length overall is 79 feet, and the beam is 20 feet. The British company, which states Gliders reduce wave motions felt on board by up to 70 percent, compared to conventional hulls, launched the 59-foot SuperSports 18 at last year’s Monaco Yacht Show. glideryachts.com
