aston martin makes first voyage into the water with AM37 powerboat

 

 

the thirty-seven-foot aston martin ‘AM37’ powerboat made its world debut at the monaco yacht show, marking the luxury british brand’s entry into the nautical world. the new day-cruiser is offered in two versions with the ‘AM37’s’ expected to reach speeds of 50 knots. it arrives as the the result of two years of research and development, challenging the status quo of the nautical world and combining innovative technology and bespoke craftsmanship. the powerboat was a true team effort, bringing in the most experienced aston martin designers to style and create a truly unique product. the british-automaker’s master craftsmen who worked on cars such as ‘one-77’; ‘vulcan’; and the new ‘DB11’, provided their automotive experience, which was reinterpreted onto the boat with outstanding results.

aston martin’s EVP & chief creative officer, marek reichman and his design team collaborated closely with dutch naval architect mulder design to ensure every element of the project was carefully considered. sharing creative expertise and specialist skills, quintessence yachts engineered the aston martin design into an innovative powerboat for the yachting world.

reichman comments, ‘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 yacht 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.

the exterior of ‘AM37’ features dynamic proportions in a design that is simple, yet immaculately executed. the boat is set apart by the attention to detail in every element of its design. the wraparound windscreen has been created from a single piece of sculpted glass fluidly draped over the foredeck. with extreme double curvature it sets a new industry standard. sliding deck technology allows owners to cover the cockpit of the boat completely at the touch of a button. the three lightweight carbon panels, operated by the ‘AM37’ key, fold under the aft deck when the cockpit is uncovered. an electro-hydraulic carbon fibre bimini top is stowed under the engine hatch when not in use and, extending from the aft deck, a swim platform allows for easy access to the water.

at the helm, a carbon fibre dashboard echoes styling elements from aston martin’s most advanced sports cars. it includes fine leather with functional features, such as the steering wheel, throttle handles and joystick in polished metals.  the boat’s navigation, control monitor and entertainment systems are all integrated, with advanced multimedia functions. 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 powerboats version with an estimated 50 knots derived from its twin 520 hp mercury petrol engines.
