THE ULTIMATE LUXURY DAY BOAT: ASTON MARTIN AM37 BY QUINTESSENCE YACHTS
The Aston Martin AM37 is the ultimate day boat and it was created to be completely customisable, so it is highly unlikely that any two boats will ever be the same. The boat is made up of 3,500 unique parts, designed, engineered and created specifically for the AM37.
Handcrafted in the UK by Quintessence Yachts, the 37-foot Aston Martin powerboats join the
maritime and automotive worlds together with style and elegance. Combining the highest degree of technology and innovation, they perfectly merge design and engineering, with performance, comfort, luxury and functionality.
The AM37 is available in two different versions:
- A ‘gran turismo’ leisure powerboat with a choice of twin 370 hp Mercury diesels or two 430 hp Mercury petrol engines.
- A more extreme AM37S version with twin 520hp petrol engines by Mercury Racing, that can achieve the maximum speed of 50 knots.
Each of these phenomenal day cruisers is manufactured using the latest in composite technologies and features many carbon fibre mouldings, including the upper deck.
Among the unrivalled technologies featured onboard, you can expect:
- A unique carbon fibre sliding cockpit panels which can be remotely operated with a mobile app.
- A navigation, control monitor and entertainment system integrated in the 15’ touchscreen in the dashboard, with advanced functions to control the electric anchor, retractable carbon fibre bimini and retractable swim platform.
Quintessence Yachts CEO Mariella Mengozzi said: “This is an exciting time for our company. The first two production boats are now on the water and the third is on its way. AM37 is a truly bespoke luxury powerboat, a very appealing speedboat to the demanding American boaters. We customise each vessel to make it fit perfectly with the owner’s desires, giving clients almost limitless options to personalise specifications, colour configurations and interior finishing; we also provide the flexibility to match their requirements to use their AM37 on the lake or on the sea. We are delighted to support our clients in choosing a boat that suits their individual needs, and we are excited to showcase this true workmanship masterpiece”.
Headquartered in the Netherlands, Quintessence Yachts was founded with the mission to offer highly exclusive maritime experiences in terms of style, performance and design. The goal is to provide the best solutions with excellent materials and advanced technologies.
To enhance the British DNA of the AM37, the very first Aston Martin powerboat, the company settled a shipyard facility in the UK near Southampton. The company proudly employs a multi-cultural management team with extensive experience within the luxury, yachting and automotive industries. In 2016 Quintessence Yachts launched the AM37 powerboat, one of the most innovative luxury yachts on the market today and a true reflection of Aston Martin’s DNA in terms of its beauty, power and soul.
