When I first heard the stunning new Aston Martin 37 had been launched, I couldn’t help but think the first undeniably British speed boat to be launched in partnership with Aston Martin must have gone to a proud British owner who was looking to show off in the South of France this summer.
But the cool truth is, the new owner of this sexy machine will be berthing it in…Miami.
And the new owner also spared no expense when he chose the “Q by Aston Martin” personalization service, that allows Aston Martin designers customize materials, colors and textures. The result is a stunning Mako Blue hull and an interior swathed in Baltic Blue and Cream Truffle upholstery with flashes of chrome. Other features include a convertible sofa, matt Lacewood table and a special version of the champagne cooler finished in Baltic Blue carbon fiber which holds two bottles of champagne and six flutes.
Taking the full range of options, including air-conditioning, the powerboat has Axius Joystick Piloting, which provides superb maneuverability and precise handling with an intuitive joystick. Having seen the powerboat in action on her test run, the new owner requested underwater lights in the hull, a bespoke addition that is now available as an option for future clients.
Quintessence Yachts unveiled the much-anticipated prototype of the AM37 at last year’s Monaco Yacht Show. Since then, the team has gone into overdrive building bespoke AM37s for clients around the world.
Quintessence Yachts also started the production of a spectacular bespoke version for a discerning client who wants his Aston Martin 37 to match his new Aston Martin Vantage AMR road car with bulk-heads and cabinetry finished in Charcoal Lacquer, and grey Novasuede headlining and window bands.
All AM37s benefit from a unique sliding cockpit cover which can be remotely operated with a mobile app. Navigation, control monitor and entertainment systems are integrated within a 15-inch touchscreen in the dashboard, with advanced functions to control the electric anchor, retractable bimini and retractable swim platform. Each of these phenomenal day cruisers is manufactured using the latest in composite technologies and features many carbon fiber moldings, including the deck of the boat.
Quintessence Yachts CEO Mariella Mengozzi concluded: “With so many options available to our clients we are confident that there will never be two identical AM37s. At the heart of our approach is a commitment to listen to customers and understand their needs, supporting their choices with the finest quality artistry. By fusing the maritime and automotive worlds with the universal characteristics of style and elegance, AM37 offers the perfect balance of design and engineering, performance and comfort, luxury and functionality.”
