Quintessence Yachts and Aston Martin have revealed details of the first Aston Martin powerboat, the AM37, which will be completed in September. Following the official presentation of the renderings at the Aston Martin HQ in Gaydon in April, a number of revolutionary features of the new AM37 were recently revealed. These include the powerboat’s unique sliding deck and a cool collection of onboard computer technologies.
The first powerboat to carry the name and the famous wings of this iconic brand represents the translation of the Aston Martin’s DNA in terms of ‘beauty, power and soul’ into a new maritime concept. A number of technologically advanced yet user-friendly features were disclosed to a specially invited audience by Quintessence Yachts and Aston Martin Dubai. One of the most striking is the sliding deck which allows owners to completely cover the cockpit of the boat at the end of their day out on the water, protecting it from the elements and uninvited guests.
The deck consists of three carbon panels which can be operated by the electronic command of the AM37 key, folding under the aft deck to uncover the cockpit. Once the cockpit is open, the aft deck slides back to facilitate access to the dock and allow those onboard to easily dive into the water and open the swimming ladder. The deck can also be raised to give access to the engine room, storage compartments and bimini top.
The AM37 also features integrated navigation, control monitor and entertainment systems, with advanced multimedia functions and interactive voice control. The user interface of the multimedia and entertainment system is installed in the 15-inch HD touch-screen on the dashboard, which guests can also use. Owners will have their own dedicated display for monitoring engine status and navigation.
More features related to the performance and innovative
technologies of the AM37 will be disclosed at further events in the
run-up to the official presentation of the first Aston Martin
powerboat this September.
