American superyacht yard Palmer Johnson has released renders of a Bugatti speedboat, which has been licensed by the Italian supercar supremos
We’ve been here before, of course, with many prestige car manufacturers stating their desire to build a speedboat, only for nothing to actually materialise beyond a few pretty renders.
Following in the footsteps of Mercedes and Jaguar was the Aston Martin AM37 speedboat which was unveiled by Quintessence Yachts in April this year and scheduled for a September launch – a deadline which came and went without anything hitting the water.
However, there are a few key detail which suggest that Bugatti may have serious intentions to build a boat.
What’s more, the Italian sportscar pioneer did have some experience of developing racing boats and yachts in the 1930s, so maybe the concept of a Bugatti speedboat isn’t so far-fetched after all.
