Aston Martin reveals its first entry into the nautical world.

When we think of Aston Martin, a boat hardly ever comes to mind. However, during the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2016, it released its first two boat models, the AM37 and the AM37S; creating history for the brand as its debut entry into the yachting world.
This day-cruiser yacht can reach speeds up to 50 knots and is seamless in design. Conceptualised by craftsmen who invented some of the most iconic Aston Martin cars, including the One-77, Aston Martin Vulcan and the DB11, this boat is a force to be reckoned with.
The exterior of AM37 features dynamic proportions in a design that is simple, yet immaculately executed. The boat is set apart by the attention to detail in every element of its design. The wraparound windscreen has been created from a single piece of sculpted glass fluidly draped over the AM37’s foredeck. With extreme double curvature, it sets a new industry standard, adding seamless beauty to the overall appearance. Sliding deck technology allows owners to cover the cockpit of the boat completely at the touch of a button. The three lightweight carbon panels, operated by the AM37 key, fold under the aft deck when the cockpit is uncovered. An electro-hydraulic carbon fibre bimini top is stowed under the engine hatch when not in use and, extending from the aft deck, a swim platform allows for easy access to the water.
At the helm, the AM37’s carbon fibre dashboard echoes styling elements from Aston Martin’s most advanced sports cars. It includes fine leather with functional features, such as the steering wheel, throttle handles and joystick in polished metals.
The boat’s navigation, control monitor and entertainment systems are all integrated, with advanced multimedia functions. The AM37 also includes a cosy air-conditioned cabin, a bed (converted from a table), a lavatory, refrigerator, microwave oven, and coffee machine.
