The luxury brand Aston Martin teamed up with Dutch firm Quintessence Yachts and produced a first-of-its-kind boat that merges the best quality of luxury cars with that of power boats.
The AM37 “captures performance, handling, comfort, and style synonymous with Aston Martin,” according to a statement from the carmaker. The design piece was formally debuted in Milan at the Salone del Mobile 2016 this past April. It’s expected to be ready for purchase at the end of 2016.
It’s a craft that’s been designed to the hilt. Quintessence Yachts said, “each function of the boat has a rationale behind it. Nothing is simply ‘there’.”
Equipped with a touch screen, fingerprint enabled control panel that integrates navigation, control monitor, and entertainment systems, captains can also regulate the electric anchor system, electrically-powered carbon fiber bimini, and three-carbon panel sliding platform deck.
The leather and wood-clad interior is outfitted with a sofa/double bed, LED screen, toilet, galley (complete with espresso machine) and dining table. The 37-foot boat is available with three engine options: two impressive 520-horsepower Mercury gas engines, two 370-horsepower Mercury diesel engines or two 430-horsepower Mercury gas engines.
“Beauty is a universal language and we all like to look at beautiful objects,” Marek explained. “This principle is at the core of Aston Martin and all of the products in which we are involved. And it’s the core of the AM37, which offers the perfect balance of design with engineering, performance with comfort, luxury with functionality.”
“The ideal symbiosis of luxurious and technical materials.”
Marek and the Aston Martin design team have worked closely with naval architect Bas Mulder and his design office. The two explained how the AM37 also represents the ideal symbiosis of luxurious and technical materials, generating a powerful yet understated feeling. They stressed – and you can see this from the renderings yourself – the way in which the perfect proportions, the simplicity, the purity and the dynamism of the AM37 generate a style all of its own.
