New project: Aston Martin Speedboat: AM 37

April 2015

We are excited to unveil that we are working together with Quintessence Yachts on the very first Aston Martin Speedboat.

Driven to succeed: Quintessence Yachts and Aston Martin

• Exciting sports car firm association creates a series of unique powerboats
• Stunning style, advanced technologies and exquisite craftsmanship
• Highest standards of yacht design and construction

29 April 2015, Gaydon: Quintessence Yachts is today unveiling the first details of an exciting
association with famous luxury British sports car maker Aston Martin which will result in the
creation of a unique series of stunning new powerboats.
The license agreement for the Aston Martin powerboat range gives Quintessence Yachts the
capacity to design and build luxurious and high performance craft, in association with the
world-renowned sports car maker.
Today’s unveiling of the AM37 via a computer-generated rendering provides a tantalising
glimpse of the first model, and precedes a series of exclusive pre-launch events that will start
with a media and customer prospect activity at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in
Gaydon, Warwickshire, prior to the boat’s official debut later this year.
Key features of the Quintessence Yachts ‘7 series’ 37-foot powerboat – available in two
distinguished versions – include a hi-tech composite structure allied to luxury sports car-like
handling, performance and comfort. Advanced technologies such as interactive voice control
and activation, a fully HD-integrated touch screen with navigation and multimedia system,
and remote controlled functions create true one-of-a-kind powerboats.
Further design elements of the AM37 will be revealed in due course. Potential owners of the
new Aston Martin powerboat are being given more details of the new project on a strictly
confidential one-to-one basis, further raising the sense of excitement among those who
share an affinity with the Aston Martin marque and the yachting world.
Quintessence Yachts is a young company with a passion for exploring new designs.
Convinced that there is something fresh to say in the classic yachting world by offering
innovative concepts, it approached Aston Martin with a proposal for a new range of boats
that would encapsulate style and performance in an exclusive design.
Mariella Mengozzi, CEO at Quintessence Yachts, said: “We are sure that the Aston Martin
ethos of ‘Power, Beauty and Soul’ can be successfully translated into the yachting
environment in a very special way.
“Since the license agreement was signed, the Aston Martin Design department has been
working seamlessly with the Quintessence R&D unit and naval architect Mulder Design in
Amsterdam to achieve a true example of design purity.”
Katia Bassi, Managing Director Aston Martin Brands, said: “Over the course of our 102-year
history Aston Martin has produced some of the most iconic luxury sports cars of all time.
“Our contemporary designs retain classic lines whilst delivering the latest technical
innovations, and the exciting range of luxury speed boats we are developing with
Quintessence Yachts reflects this commitment to excellence in every field, as well as
perfectly encapsulating our ‘Art of Living’ philosophy.”
