Lamborghini takes to the seas

The supercar maker has created an incredible new yacht for 63 lucky customers. Nicole Garcia Merida reports.

Lamborghini and yacht maker Italian Sea Group probably have many customers in common: “both cater to people who have millions to spend on high-horsepower, limited-production luxury vehicles”, says Ezra Dyer on Car and Driver. So it made sense for them to collaborate on a limited edition superyacht, Lamborghini’s first venture into the sea and Tecnomar’s fastest vessel to date. 

Billed as the “Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63”, the yacht “combines a sporty silhouette with a nautical appearance”, says Miranda Blazeby on Boat International. “Other details include a hardtop inspired by Lamborghini’s sports cars, which provides protection from the elements while contributing to the yacht’s aerodynamic performance.” The 63 in the model name refers to the carmaker’s founding year, the boat’s 63-foot length and to the fact that only 63 will be made, selling for around £2.7m each. They are expected to be delivered in 2021 and clients will be able to choose from an extensive range of exterior colours and livery options, and from two interiors. 

Inspiration for the design came from the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37, the first Lamborghini destined for production that is powered by a hybrid engine, says Jeff Parsons in Metro. Like the car, the yacht is made from carbon fibre, making it extremely light, and the steering wheel and gauges in the cockpit are designed to look like the inside of a Lamborghini supercar – “even the starter button is identical”. Look closely and you will notice features taken from other models of Lamborghini’s past, including nods to its original supercar, the classic Miura.

The performance is unmistakably Lamborghini too, says Rob Hull on This Is Money. The twin 24.2-litre V12 engines, which produce 2,000 horsepower and 4,794 lb ft of torque apiece, propel the boat to a top speed of 60 knots, or around 70mph – “enough to get you to your second home in Monaco in about the time it takes to mix a really good Martini”, says Parsons.
