This isn’t the first time a luxury automaker’s dipped their toes into the world of luxury yachting. After all, it’s a match made in heaven: thrill-seekers and motor enthusiasts alike who enjoy wind whipping through their hair, exhilarating speed and the lap of luxury. Performance and power work just as well on sea as on land, with the added bonus of showcasing the marque’s adaptability and commitment to innovation. Which is why, we think, Lamborghini has gotten into the sport yacht game.
That said though, what works well on land doesn’t always translate well to water. Which is why Lamborghini have engaged the help of superstar designers The Italian Sea Group, to help make their dream a reality. Enter the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63, a sport yacht for the ages. As its name suggests, the limited edition motor yacht is an ode to the founding of the famed Italian marque, known for its sport cars that perfectly balance ferocity and style.
The Tecnomar draws inspiration from the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, a hybrid supercar from the marque’s land-based fleet. More than just coming up with a yacht that looks as great as it rides, the challenge the two Italian companies faced was melding the unique characteristics, materials and design principles that governed the storied brands.
Says Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini in a press release, “This yacht represents the significance of creating a valuable partnership, at its best: our co-operation allows the essence of both organisations’ style and expertise to be transferred to different worlds, sharing in their diversity to interpret and add value to the final product in a new environment.”
“If I had to imagine a Lamborghini on water, this would be my vision,” he adds. The Italian Sea Group have done their utmost to make Lamborghini’s yacht something truly special. It’s the fastest Tecnomar motor yacht they’ve made so far, thanks to a combination of its throaty twin V12-2000 hp engines and ultra-lightweight carbon fibre shell, a material that’s characteristic of Lamborghini sports cars, lending the vehicle a top speed of 60 knots.
The similarities don’t stop there: distinctive Sian FKP 37-inspired, Y-shaped bow lights and a hard-top roof that’s both aerodynamic and evocative of the marque’s roadsters complement the sporty silhouette of the sea-faring yacht. It doesn’t just move fast: it looks fast, which is half the fun.
The interiors are absolutely Lamborghini through-and-through. Unsullied lines, high-performance materials and sleek, angular shapes makes you feel like you’re driving a Lamborghini. Fully customisable liveries and carbon-fibre finishes in classic supercar style across the interiors, sports seats, wheel and instrument panel round out the driving experience. As an added touch, you’ve got Lamborghini’s signature start/stop buttons: though this time, you’ve got two, one for each of the engines.
The Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 will be available come 2021 for around S$4.8 million, so there’s plenty of time to get your sea legs. Naturally, the motor yacht comes with a suite of navigational and control systems – but you’ve got to learn how to walk before you run. And this motor yacht can run.
