Debuted at Yachts Miami Beach, the prototype Aston Martin AM37 powerboat challenges the status quo of the nautical world. It offers a pure translation of the brand’s DNA into an entirely new maritime concept, combining innovative technology and bespoke craftsmanship with a perfect balance of design and engineering, performance and comfort, luxury and functionality.
Built at the UK premises of Quintessence Yachts to an extremely high standard, the Aston Martin AM37 offers state-of-the-art amenities. The sliding deck benefits from unique technology, which allows owners to completely cover and uncover the cockpit of the boat at the touch of a button. The wraparound windscreen is made from a single piece of sculpted glass fluidly draped over the AM37’s foredeck. An electro-hydraulic carbon fiber bimini top is stowed above the engine hatch when not in use and a swim platform extending from the aft deck allows for easy access to the water. At the helm, the AM37’s carbon fiber dashboard echoes styling elements from Aston Martin’s most advanced sports cars. It includes the most beautiful leather with functional features, such as the steering wheel, throttle handles, and joystick in polished metal.
In addition to being a beautiful day cruiser, the AM37 can also be used overnight by converting the table into a comfortable double bed. The cabin is well-appointed with mood lighting and air-conditioning. A refrigerator, microwave oven, espresso machine, and onboard lavatory mean that absolute comfort is assured. The materials used, such as leather, metal, glass, and wood, are all authentic and exquisitely finished.
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.
Quintessence Yachts CEO Mariella Mengozzi commented: “As the exclusive builders of the Aston Martin powerboats, Quintessence Yachts translate the design into functionality and technology to enhance the customer experience. Yachts Miami Beach is a strategic event for us to reach our clients and we are proud to showcase the AM37, a boat that represents an entirely new concept for the yachting world. We are very gratified by the strong interest in our yacht before the boat show, and this is the right time to present it to an expectant American audience.”
