After making its US debut at Yachts Miami Beach earlier this year, UK shipyard Quintessence Yachts displayed the new Aston Martin AM37S powerboat at the 2017edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), which came to a close last weekend.

Finished in eye-catching Diavolo Red, paired with a Cream Truffle leather upholstery and contrast red stitching, this AM37S is billed as the ultimate day boat and was created to be completely customisable,

Made up of some 3,500 unique parts, the 37-foot Aston Martin powerboat combines the highest degree of technology and innovation, perfectly merging design and engineering with performance, comfort, luxury and functionality.

The AM37 is available in two different versions: a ‘gran turismo’ leisure powerboat with a choice of twin 370 hp Mercury diesels or two 430 hp Mercury petrol engines, and a more extreme AM37S version with twin 520hp petrol engines by Mercury Racing, that can achieve a maximum speed of 50 knots.

Among the technologies featured onboard, visitors to FLIBS were able to enjoy the unique carbon fibre sliding cockpit panels which can be remotely operated with a mobile app. Navigation, control monitor and entertainment system are integrated in the 15’ touchscreen in the dashboard, with advanced functions to control the electric anchor, retractable carbon fibre bimini and retractable swim platform.

“This is an exciting time for our company, said Quintessence Yachts CEO Mariella Mengozzi. “The first two production boats are now on the water and the third is on its way. AM37 is a truly bespoke luxury powerboat, a very appealing speedboat to the demanding American boaters.

“We customise each vessel to make it fit perfectly with the owner’s desires, giving clients almost limitless options to personalise specifications, colour configurations and interior finishing; we also provide the flexibility to match their requirements to use their AM37 on the lake or on the sea.”

The AM37S was on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from 1 – 5 November.
