When an icon takes to the water, the results are pretty cool.
From above, it looks like a bullet. In profile, it looks like it’s moving even when it’s not. Equipped with the optional twin 520 hp Mercury gas engines, it can reach 50 knots. If a day on the water turns into a night on the water, it can sleep two. Oh, have we mentioned it carries the Aston Martin name?
The Aston Martin AM37, designed and built in collaboration with Quintessence Yachts, is a 37-foot luxury dayboat with Aston Martin DNA throughout, bringing an iconic automotive look and feel to the water. Buyers get the full Aston Martin experience, choosing a paint color, leathers, stitching, other materials and more.
The carbon fiber dash includes leather touches and a flat glass panel for the digital gauges, while the steering wheel and engine throttles feature fine leather and polished stainless steel. A 15-inch touchscreen display can be used to control the entertainment system, lights, appliances and more.
A refrigerator, a coffeemaker, a microwave and a head will ensure everyone is comfortable for the day, even with the full complement of eight people aboard, on the cockpit sofa and two captain’s chairs. And if the sun gets to be too much, a carbon fiber Bimini can be engaged. It stows under the three carbon fiber panels of the aft deck and emerges at the touch of a button. It can extend in length to cover the cockpit. This James Bond boat is a convertible.
The deep-V stepped hull reduces surface contact with the water and, therefore, resistance, contributing to the expected 50 knot top speed. The Mercury engines will be coupled to Bravo Three XR sterndrives, and Axius joystick piloting is an option.
