Set to debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September, the Quintessence Yachts Aston Martin AM37 (quintessenceyachts.com) represents a collaboration between the newly established Dutch boatbuilding brand and the British automaker. With input from Aston Martin, the boat was designed by Mulder Design, a Dutch firm for naval architecture, engineering, and design whose portfolio includes—in a coincidental connection to Aston Martin and its association with James Bond—the superyachts Octopussy, The World Is Not Enough, and Moonraker. The AM37 features a high-tech composite hull, carbon-fiber structural components, an interactive voice-control system, and a high-definition touchscreen for controlling navigation and multimedia functions. Two variants of the boat will be offered: the standard AM37, a vessel Quintessence describes as “a gran turismo leisure powerboat” that can reach speeds of about 44 knots, and the AM37S, which has a top speed of 52 knots. The company will announce prices at the Monaco launch.
