The GT of the Seven Seas has arrived and we’re feeling some Titanic-sized love vibes right now. Studio F.A. Porsche — the design studio behind Porsche’s automobiles — has teamed up with shipbuilder Dynamiq to create the GTT 115 Superyacht.
According to Porsche, it’s the yacht made for crossing the Atlantic. It’s not that farfetched for the automaker to get into the yacht business, as design has always been a core foundation of the company since the beginning (see: Porsche Design).
Porsche says the yacht has a singular exterior design, a contrast to traditional shipbuilding where everything is designed based on the customer’s wants. The inspiration for the exterior design comes from the fluid lines and balanced proportions of the Porsche 911. The interior is also heavily influenced by automotive design, taking design cues from the Porsche Mission E Brown concept.
The 35-meter yacht is powered by two 1,650 hp MAN V12 diesel engines, giving it a top speed of 21 knots and a range of 3,400 nautical miles. We’re no ship experts here, but we can surmise that that’s a fast as all hell.
Seven yachts have already been built, but the GTT 115 will make its debut at the Monaco Yacht show on September 27 for prospective customers. All for a measly $16.7 million USD.
