DUBAI // Luxury car brand and perennial James Bond favourite Aston Martin has unveiled its first speedboat.

The AM37 features all the bells and whistles you would expect from the high-end car maker.

“The iconic allure of Aston Martin is built upon passion, skill and creativity of the people who dedicate their working lives to this historic luxury brand,” said a statement on Quintessence Yachts website, the company Aston Martin has collaborated with on the project.

“Thanks to the extensive contribution of the Aston Martin designers, the AM37 combines the highest degree of technology and innovation in a genuinely unique manner.”

The 11.3 metre-long boat features onboard voice control with a sliding deck, allowing the cockpit top be protected from the elements, as well as dashboard HD touchscreen control displays.

A newly designed storage system allows owners to lock and secure their items with a click of a key, and there is also an espresso machine.

There will be two versions built. The AM37S is described as a true powerboat with a top speed of 52 knots and the AM37, a “gran turismo” leisure powerboat, has a top speed of 44 knots.

“Luxurious and fast in the best tradition of British sports cars, the AM37 powerboats marry the finest features of two distinct worlds,” said Quintessence Yachts.
