Measuring 37 feet in length and with a composite hull made of epoxy resin and carbon fibre, the AM37 will feature interactive voice control, HD touchscreen navigation and a multimedia system.

Marek Reichman, design Director at Aston Martin, told MBY: “There is something missing in the world of yachts, which is that emotional connection to a depth of heritage outside of where boats are currently.

“The automotive industry has influenced yachts, but also vice versa. They are both dynamic sculptures – you are effectively translating tarmac for waves.”

The vessel will be available in two versions: the classic “gran turismo” leisure craft, capable of reaching 44 knots (50mph); and the AM37 S for serious speeds of up to 60 knots (70mph).

The power boat will be going into production later this year in Southampton, although it’s price has not yet been revealed.

A working prototype will debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
