The finest leather, polished metal and carbon fibre dash tell you that this cockpit is pure Aston Martin. On a boat.
The £1.26m AM37 powerboat unveiled at Monaco echoes the styling elements from Aston Martin’s iconic sports cars.
The steering wheel, throttle handles and joystick all shout Aston Martin’s name loud and proud across the nautical world that the marque is experiencing for the first time.
The boat’s navigation, control monitor and entertainment systems are all integrated, with advanced multimedia functions too.
The wraparound windscreen, with its extreme double curvature, has been created from a single piece of sculpted glass fluidly draped over the AM37’s foredeck.
Sliding deck technology allows owners to cover the cockpit of the boat completely at the touch of a button.
Three lightweight carbon panels, operated by the AM37 key, fold under the aft deck when the cockpit is uncovered.
An electro-hydraulic carbon fibre bimini top is stowed under the engine hatch when not in use and, extending from the aft deck, a swim platform allows for easy access to the water.
Aston Martin craftsmen who worked on cars such as One-77, Aston Martin Vulcan and the new DB11 provided their experience, reinterpreted onto the boat with outstanding results.
“The most important attribute for Aston Martin is the design language and proportion. We have transferred this DNA into AM37,” said Aston Martin’s Marek Reichman.
“It was important to us when considering this project to make sure that the boat design was as beautiful and timeless as our cars,” he said.
The AM37 is a 37-foot day cruiser that seats up to eight. It can be transformed into an overnight berth with the table doubling as a bed.
The cabin is well appointed with mood lighting and air-conditioning. There is also a refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee machine and a lavatory on board.
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 provided by its twin 520 hp Mercury petrol engines.
