The prototype Aston Martin AM37 powerboat will be presented for the first time in the United States at Yachts Miami Beach on Collins Avenue (February 16-20). Showcased at Stand ENT 4; NEW 125, the vessel is a daring new maritime concept that unifies innovative technology, bespoke craftsmanship, a perfect balance of design and engineering, performance and comfort, luxury and functionality.
The Aston Martin AM37 powerboat has enough space to carry up to eight people. Built at the UK premises of Quintessence Yachts to an extremely high standard, the 37-foot model is available in two versions, the AM37 with an estimated top speed of 45 knots and a choice of two 370 hp Mercury diesel or two 430 hp Mercury petrol engines, and the AM37S version with an estimated 50 knots derived from its twin 520 hp Mercury petrol engines.
The sliding deck is fitted with unique technology, which allows owners to completely cover and uncover the cockpit of the boat at the touch of a button. The wraparound windscreen is made from a single piece of sculpted glass fluidly draped over the AM37’s foredeck.
An electro-hydraulic carbon fibre bimini top is stowed above the engine hatch when not in use and a swim platform extending from the aft deck allows for easy access to the water. At the helm, the AM37’s carbon fibre dashboard mimics styling elements from Aston Martin’s most advanced sports cars. It includes the finest leather with functional features, such as the steering wheel, throttle handles and joystick in polished metal.
The AM37 can also be used overnight by converting the table into a comfortable double bed. The cabin is well appointed with mood lighting and air-conditioning. A refrigerator, microwave oven, espresso machine and on board lavatory mean that absolute comfort is assured. The materials used such as leather, metal, glass and wood are all authentic and exquisitely finished.
