These days, it seems very in vogue for luxury automakers to dive into the nautical world. Just last week, we hipped you on the Porsche GTT 115 Superyacht, and now, Aston Martin is in the boating business too. They just debuted the AM37 at the Monaco Yacht Show.
The AM37 will be available in two different models: the AM37, with a top speed at 45 knots, and the AM37S, estimated to reach speeds of 50 knots. It’s a collaboration between the design team at Aston Martin, naval architect Mulder Design, and Dutch shipbuilder Quintessence Yachts. It took two years of R&D to create the boat and it promises to be a truly unique yachting experience combining great design, state-of-the art technology, and a bespoke interior.
According to Aston Martin’s EVP and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, the man behind the new DB11, Vulcan, and One-77, the exterior follows the same “golden ratio” rule that applies to Aston Martin cars.
There is a certain balance in the proportions and a seamlessness effect to the body; it almost looks like it was carved out of a single piece of material. The wraparound windscreen is made from one solid piece of sculpted glass and the decks are covered in luxurious teak, a nod to the speedboats of yore.
Consider the AM37 the ultimate “day boat,” perfect for a day of R&R in the French Riviera. It’ll cost you a princely sum of $1.64 million USD — basically chump change for the jet-setters who’ll buy this thing.
