From the open roads to the tranquil embrace of marine harbors, a captivating synergy is unfolding in the luxury market. Supercars and luxury yachts, long celebrated as icons of land and sea opulence, are now forming groundbreaking collaborations that transcend the expectations of each realm. This blend of land speed and nautical grace illustrates how supercar manufacturers can transition their visionary design and ethos into the vast oceans. Dive in as we explore the most exhilarating collaborations between the titans of the automobile and yachting worlds.
First on our list is a harmonious blend of speed on land and mastery at sea, the Tecnomar 63 — the brainchild of a collaborative genius between the Italian Sea Group and Automobili Lamborghini. Infusing Lamborghini's iconic supercar aesthetics into maritime engineering, the superyacht showcases Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 hybrid hypercar-inspired design elements, featuring sharp, geometric lines and a distinctive Y-shaped stern. Crafted primarily from carbon fiber, its lightweight frame weighs in at an impressive 24 tons, allowing for agility on water. Propelled by a pair of powerhouse MAN V12-2000 HP engines, the Tecnomar 63 can achieve an impressive top speed of 63 knots, which translates to around 72 mph.
Spanning 63 feet in length and 18 feet in width, its interior is a sanctuary of luxury with leather upholstery, marble countertops, and a panoramic sunroof. Elements like the helm seats echo the Huracán Evo, and an instrument panel mirrors the Aventador, paying homage to Lamborghini's rich legacy. Limited to just 63 exclusive units, in honor of the year Lamborghini was established, this $3.5 million marine marvel has already found an owner in MMA star Conor McGregor, who acquired Hull #2. In essence, the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 redefines nautical luxury, encapsulating the Lamborghini heritage in every wave it rides.
Aston Martin AM37
The Aston Martin AM37 is a result of the harmonious collaboration between Aston Martin, Mulder Design, a Dutch yacht design stalwart, and the esteemed British yacht builders, Quintessence Yachts. This refined powerboat embodies the essence of Aston Martin's signature design. With its deep indigo carbon fiber hull and custom wooden deck, it's not only a visual wonder but also an exemplar of aerodynamic optimization. Powered by a twin 430 hp MerCruiser engine, the AM37 gracefully achieves a top speed of 47 knots, while maintaining a comfortable cruising speed of 35 knots.
This luxury vessel has an impressive range of 300 nautical miles, ensuring it's adept for both long voyages and intimate get-togethers, complemented by its wet bar, BBQ, and state-of-the-art sound system. Limited to just 37 units, each priced around $1.7 million, the AM37 marks Aston Martin's grand entrance into the yachting world, encapsulating an unparalleled blend of luxury, design, and performance.
Riva Ferrari 32
The Riva Ferrari 32 is an icon of Italian elegance and innovation, uniting the design brilliance from two powerhouse brands: Ferrari and Riva. Every inch of this yacht whispers grandeur, from its distinct Rosso Corso paint that incorporates design cues from the Ferrari Testarossa, to its sleek aerodynamic profile reminiscent of the 80s' supercars.
Underneath its polished exterior lies impressive power. Twin BPM Vulcano V8 engines propel this yacht, allowing it to effortlessly achieve a top speed of 54 knots, while ensuring a considerable range of 250 nautical miles. At 32 feet in length and a breadth of 10 feet, its fiberglass hull and aluminum superstructure harmonize perfectly, encapsulating the meticulous attention to detail synonymous with both Riva and Ferrari.
Produced in a limited run of just 40 units in 1990, this luxury marine vessel infuses Ferrari's automotive engineering mastery with Riva's maritime craftsmanship, making it a collector's gem in both the nautical and automotive worlds.
This collaboration is where history meets modernity. Bugatti, celebrated for its unmatched automotive ingenuity, combined forces with the U.S. boat builder, Palmer Johnson, to unveil the Niniette series. The Niniette 66 stands out prominently, showcasing not just remarkable features like the fire pit and spa pool but also design nuances reflecting the Bugatti Chiron hypercar. Indeed, its inspiration from the Chiron is evident in the common design elements between the two, such as the C-shaped curve and stunning color contrast. With a blazing top speed of 44 knots, it merges opulence with unmatched performance.
The Niniette 66 is named in honor of Bugatti's founder, Ettore Bugatti's daughter, Lidia Bugatti, affectionately known as "Nini". With a grand span of 66 feet in length and a beam of 18 feet, this vessel is a testament to nautical craftsmanship. Two powerful MTU V8 engines propel the yacht, ensuring it reaches its top speed effortlessly. It promises a range of 300 nautical miles, making it ideal for those long sea escapades.
Bugatti, together with Palmer Johsnon, designed the interior with carbon fiber, to keep the Ninette as light as possible, while seamlessly implementing natural blue morta (bog) oak throughout the deck. The interior exudes grandeur, adorned with leather upholstery, wooden accents, and a panoramic glass sunroof, which has been designed to accommodate up to 21 passengers at any given time. The Niniette 66 comes in a spectrum of colors, and can be tailored to the discerning tastes of its owner. Recognizing its elite nature, only 66 units of this limited-edition yacht will be built, and it will come complete with a starting price of $4 million.
Last on our list, but by no means the least, is the Brabus Shadow 800. A limited edition superboat birthed from the collaboration between yacht manufacturer Axopar and automotive tuning specialist Brabus. This collaboration resulted in the formation of Brabus Marine, with a singular mission: to bring the same bespoke luxury to yachts as Brabus does to cars.
The Brabus Shadow 800 showcases this vision perfectly. Constructed on the Axopar 37 Suntop platform, the yacht begins its life in Axopar facilities before moving to Brabus for detailed, high-quality finishes. Its design, reminiscent of Brabus cars, features aggressive front fascia and blacked-out accents. The "Shadow" moniker aptly conveys its stealthy appearance, further complemented by its military-inspired aesthetics. The interior is a blend of luxury and sophistication, with quilted leather upholstery, carbon fiber touches, and a soundproof ambiance ensuring serenity even at high speeds.
Beneath its sleek exterior lies a powerhouse: twin 400 HP Mercury Racing R engines, delivering impressive speeds of up to 45 knots. During tests, it displayed impeccable stability even at high speeds, ensuring the safety of its passengers. Its performance is further enhanced with features like electrical-hydraulic steering and an adaptive speed control system. This luxury superboat not only promises but delivers an outstanding performance with a sleek hull to match.
