• Aston Martin AM37 powerboat unveiled at the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show
• First powerboat developed by Aston Martin and Quintessence Yachts
• Innovative design marries expertise from the luxury automotive and yachting world
• Performance AM37S version expected to reach speeds of 50 knots
The much anticipated 37-foot Aston Martin AM37 powerboat made its world appearance at the Monaco Yacht Show today, marking the luxury British brand’s entry into the nautical world. The powerboat is offered in two versions with the AM37S expected to reach speeds of 50 knots.
The AM37 is the manifestation of two years of research and development, challenging the status quo of the nautical world and combining the best of both worlds in innovative technology and bespoke craftsmanship. The AM37 is the definition of a real team effort, bringing in the most skilled Aston Martin designers to style and create a truly unique product. Aston Martin’s master craftsmen who worked on cars such as the One-77, Aston Martin Vulcan and the new DB11, provided their automotive experience, which was reinterpreted onto the boat with obvious amazing results.
Aston Martin’s EVP & Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman and his design team joined forces with naval architect Mulder Design to make certain every detail of the project was painstakingly considered. Sharing creative expertise and specialist skills, Quintessence Yachts engineered the Aston Martin design into an innovative powerboat for the yachting world.
Reichman commented: “AM37 is a pure translation of the Aston Martin DNA into an entirely new maritime concept. The powerboat reflects our values in terms of power, beauty and soul. The most important attribute for Aston Martin is the design language and proportion, we have transferred this DNA into AM37. It was important to us when considering this project to make sure that the boat design was as beautiful and timeless as our cars, the AM37 is a striking boat with fantastic proportion and elegance.”
The AM37 is a day cruiser that can be transformed into an overnight berth by transforming the table into a comfortable bed. The cabin is well appointed with mood lighting and air-conditioning. With a refrigerator, microwave oven and coffee machine – and a lavatory on board, absolute comfort is guaranteed. Crafted from the finest leathers, elegantly laid out rear seating is available for up to eight people.
