Creating A Supercar For The Superyacht Lifestyle
Camper & Nicholsons have today announced a partnership with BAC to create the ultimate in superyacht toys for future tender garages: The Marine Edition Mono.
The Mono is a lightweight, ultra high-performance supercar, capable of over 170 mph, 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds, and is the fastest car on road legal tyres ever to appear on Top Gear’s Power Lap.
The new Marine Edition Mono will be custom designed for life on board the world’s premier superyachts, weighing only 580Kg and will be powered by a new Mountune 2.5L engine that produces 305 horsepower, delivered through a Hewland FTR gearbox found on current F3 race cars. The Mono’s reduced weight will allow for easy hoisting on and off yachts, using on board cranes.
Kurt Fraser, Director of Marketing at Camper & Nicholsons said, “BAC’s Marine Edition Monaco is the ultimate superyacht toy, aimed at owners interested in combining their love of yachting with their passion for purist driving experiences. Lifted easily on shore, owners have the opportunity to connect with each destination they visit, like never before – in complete freedom and sensational driving style.”
The Marine Edition Mono will feature anti-corrosive ultra high-specification components for unparalleled performance and durability, proprietary lifting system for safe and easy hoisting, an Environmental Control Container System for on board storage in a climate-controlled environment, and bespoke interior and exterior design custom suited to yacht styling and owner preference.
BAC’s co-founder and Director of Design, Ian Briggs said, “I started my career in the luxury yacht design field and have always wanted to combine my love of marine and automotive design. We had an opportunity here to bring something unique, functionally pure, exciting and even practical on the level of weight optimization. The Marine Edition Mono represents the ultimate arrive-and-drive experience with great purity of purpose and style.”
Andrew Whitney, BAC Director of Strategy & Corporate Development added, “BAC’s business continues to evolve according to a well-defined strategy whereby the company develops exceptional, uncompromised, ultra high performance products to elite clientele. Camper & Nicholsons has always stood for these very same things and our partnership represents the confluence of not only philosophies but also capabilities and a shared commitment to deliver the best possible experiences to our customers.”
