Making its debut at last year’s Monaco Yacht Show, British luxury automobile designer Aston Martin has introduced its first yachting vessel. The result of two years of research and development, Aston Martin has introduced the AM37, a powerboat that challenges the status quo of the nautical world. This new day-cruiser is offered in two versions with the AM37S expected to reach speeds of 50 knots and combines expert technology and engineering with the luxurious design and performance Aston Martin is known for.
A true team effort by the most experienced Aston Martin designers, this new nautical vessel combines innovative technology and the iconic craftsmanship associated with Aston Martin. Naval Architect Mulder Design worked in collaboration with the AM team and Quintessence Yachts engineered the design making the AM37 one-of-a-kind in the yachting world.
“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.” – Aston Martin’s EVP & Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman
The AM37 is a day cruiser that can be transformed into an overnight berth. The cabin is well appointed with mood lighting and air-conditioning and with a refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee machine and lavatory on board – absolute comfort is guaranteed.
The exterior features a design that is simple yet immaculate in appearance and detail. With extreme double curvature it sets a new industry standard and its carbon fibre dashboard echoes styling elements from Aston Martin’s most advanced sports cars.
It includes fine leather with functional features and 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 AM37S version with an estimated 50 knots derived from its twin 520 hp Mercury petrol engines.
“We are so proud to present the AM37, an exclusive powerboat for the yachting world. With this project Aston Martin, the icon of style and technological innovation, confirms its place as a top luxury brand. The Aston Martin Art of Living is a way of life that captures the very essence of the Aston Martin brand, and AM37 is a fine example of this philosophy.” – Katia Bassi, VP of AML & Managing Director of AM Brands
