2.Lexus Sport Yacht
As its parent company, Toyota, is already a major player in the Japanese motor yacht industry, Lexus has an immediate benefit. With its fluid lines evoking the Lexus LFA supercar, the 12.7 metre Lexus Sport Yacht is every inch as sleek, energetic and comfortable as you might imagine from the luxury motoring company.
For a top speed of 43 knots, power comes from a pair of 440hp Lexus V8 engines, while there is ample seating room for eight guests to enjoy the journey. The Marquis-Carver Yacht Group in Wisconsin designed the proof-of – concept prototype (pictured above), but Lexus unfortunately has no intentions to bring the Sport Yacht into mass production.
3.Arrow 460 Granturismo
Modelled on the famous Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows race cars that dominated motorsport in the 1930s, the 14 meter Arrow 460 Granturismo.
To build this special boat that hit the water in spring 2016, Silver Arrows Marine joined forces with Mercedes-Benz Style. It proved to be such a success that Baltic Yachts, a Finnish carbon fibre specialist, signed up to carry the Mercedes-Benz speedboat into mass production.
4. Niniette 66
Bugatti is known for creating the Veyron, the world’s fastest manufactured sports car, but the French maker has also partnered up with yacht builder Palmer Johnson to present a series of Niniette carbon fiber day vessels, all named after Ettore Bugatti, the daughter of Bugatti ‘s founder.
The newest iteration in the series is the 20-meter Niniette 66, which has been built to be closely identical to the previous Bugatti model, the Chiron, while maintaining the lightweight carbon fiber structure and stabilizing the sponsors that offer Palmer Johnson yachts exceptional stability and maritime maintenance.
A fire pit and a spa pool in the expansive seating area of the main deck and a double cabin under the decks are important features. Top speeds of up to 44 knots would be possible with a variety of engine choices.
5. Jaguar Concept Speed Boat
In partnership with Canadian yacht designer Ivan Erdevicki, British car manufacturer Jaguar built this 6.1 metre speedboat project, which was planned to complement the Jaguar XF Sportbrake.
“The Model Speedboat looks solid,” Jaguar’s design director, Ian Callum, said. “It follows the concept of a typical speedboat in so many respects, but with the streamlined and fast features that you might expect from a Jaguar vehicle.”
The boat is made from fibreglass but, inspired by the famous Jaguar D-Type, has a carbon fibre fin on the hull.
6. RFF135 Porsche Design
To build the 41.4 meter RFF135 catamaran, Porsche Design partnered with the Singapore-based Royal Falcon Fleet. The yard president was searching for a “spaceship on the sea,” and the only parameter of the concept was that it had to be a catamaran.
The two hulls build a totally different sense of stance, almost resembling a race car track, “said Porsche Style.”
Combined with twin MTU 16V 4000 M93L engines and two water jets, the round aluminum bilge catamaran hull shape ensures that the RFF135 is capable of speeds of more than 30 knots. Although construction of the first hull started in Sweden many years ago, it is unclear when it will be unveiled.
