A luxury powerboat with sports car features – that’s the short-and-sweet elevator pitch for the Quintessence x Aston Martin AM37 Powerboat. And, let’s be real, who’s going to say no to that?
Combining advanced powerboat chops with the kind of creature comforts you enjoy in an Aston Martin car, it’s about as easy a sell as a boat can get. Provided you can afford it, of course. Being an Aston Martin co-brand, it’s impossible to resist a 007 reference, which, fortunately, goes perfectly well with the boat’s sleek looks – I mean, it’s not a stretch to see James Bond or one of his villains riding one of these during a high-speed water chase.
The Quintessence x Aston Martin AM37 is a 37-foot boat with a deep V hull that boasts sophisticated structural composition and 10 percent lower resistance while slicing through the water. It can be fitted with any of three engine options from Mercury: a 370-horsepower diesel, a 450-horsepower gas, or a pair of 520-horsepower gas engines for kicking things up a notch. And, yes, it looks very much like an Aston for the ocean, with clean lines, a single piece double-curved windshield, and a luxurious wooden deck.
Features include eight-person seating, a sliding deck that pulls triple duty as a boat cover and a swimming platform, a powered carbon fiber bimini top for when the sun gets a little too harsh, and an integrated control system for navigation, monitor, and entertainment functions. And, yes, you’ll definitely get pampered with a fridge, microwave, air conditioning, mood lighting, a fold out bed, and even a bathroom all coming as stock.
No pricing has been announced for the Quintessence x Aston Martin AM37, but it should be available soon.
