The Aston Martin AM37 challenges the status quo of the nautical world and offers a pure translation of the brand’s DNA into an entirely new maritime concept, combining innovative technology and bespoke craftsmanship with a perfect balance of design and engineering, performance and comfort, luxury and functionality.
The AM37 – which can carry up to eight people – is the ultimate day cruiser, designed and crafted with meticulous attention to detail, superior levels of workmanship and an incredible degree of sophistication.
At the helm, the AM37’s carbon fibre dashboard echoes styling elements from Aston Martin’s most advanced sports cars. It includes the finest leather with functional features, such as the steering wheel, throttle handles and joystick in polished metal.
The materials used such as leather, metal, glass and wood are all authentic and exquisitely finished.
In addition to being a stunning day cruiser, the AM37 can also be used overnight by converting the table into a comfortable double bed. The cabin is well appointed with mood lighting and air-conditioning. A refrigerator, microwave oven, espresso machine and onboard lavatory mean that absolute comfort is assured.
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 gas engines, and the AM37S version with an estimated 50 knots derived from its twin 520-hp Mercury gas engines.
Famous for the creation of beautiful hand-crafted sports cars, the Aston Martin range today comprises the Vantage, Rapide S, Vanquish, DB11 and special-series cars such as the Vanquish Zagato and Aston Martin Vulcan. The boats are built at the UK premises of Quintessence Yachts to an extremely high standard.
Perhaps the ultimate day cruiser, the AM37 powerboat is one of the most innovative luxury yachts on the market today.
The wraparound windscreen is made from a single piece of sculpted glass fluidly draped over the AM37’s foredeck. With its extreme double curvature, the windscreen sets a new industry standard.
An electro-hydraulic carbon fibre bimini top is stowed above the engine hatch when not in use and a swim platform extending from the aft deck allows for easy access to the water.
