During an exclusive pre-launch event held at the Aston Martin headquarters in the UK, Quintessence Yachts has released details of the first designs now under construction as part of a unique partnership with the famous car brand.
The AM37 is a fast 37 foot leisure boat that synthesises tradition and innovation to offer the ultimate ‘driving on the water’ experience.
A comprehensive digital exhibition of artworks and renderings was set up at the Design Reception in Gaydon to showcase the in-depth cooperation between Aston Martin, Quintessence Yachts and Mulder Design. Together the parties have created a genuine expression of artisan skill while incorporating the very latest technological trends.
Quintessence Yachts gave Mulder Design a naval architect brief based upon the Dutch company’s ability to provide the framework of the design to Aston Martin and then ensure that style changes made in the UK complemented the hull’s performance.
The design process has involved a constant exchange of ideas for each single item from the dashboard to the deck and the interiors, with the full commitment of the Aston Martin team providing inputs and feedback on components and features.
The resulting boats are a pioneering delineation into the yachting environment of Aston Martin style in its purest sense. The AM37 combines the highest degree of technology and innovation in a genuinely unique manner that is sure to delight those who understand the Aston Martin credo of ‘power, beauty and soul’.
Based upon a concept of creating elegant fast boats with an exclusive design and a sporty character, the 37 foot model will be presented in two version: the AM37 S, a true sportyacht with a maximum speed of 60 knots, and the AM37, which is more of a gran turismo leisure boat with an even higher degree of luxury and a maximum speed of around 50
A dedicated Quintessence Yachts facility is building the boats in the United Kingdom in order to enhance the British DNA of the Aston Martin speedboats. The production process deploys state-of-the-art vacuum infusion technology to ensure maximum quality control with the hull being made in high-tech composite and structural parts in carbon fibre.
AM37 and the AM37 S are the first step in a strategic venture between Quintessence Yachts and Aston Martin that will eventually result in a wide range of top quality speedboats.
