Το υπερπολυτελές, σπορ σκάφος, αντλεί έμπνευση από τα μαχητικά αεροσκάφη Spitfire. Θα κατασκευάζεται από ανθρακονήματα, kevlar και ελαφρύ ξύλο. Την απαραίτητη για κίνηση ισχύ, παρέχει ένας πλήρως ανακατασκευασμένος Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 που παρότι detuned, αποδίδει 1.100 άλογα. Με αυτή την ιπποδύναμη, το Aeroboat θα είναι ικανό για ταχύτητες 75-95 κόμβων. Η παραγωγή θα περιοριστεί στις 12 μονάδες και κάθε μοντέλο θα κατασκευάζεται σύμφωνα με τις προτιμήσεις του πελάτη.

FUTURISTIC DAY-BOAT POWERED BY ROLLS-ROYCE MERLIN V12 ENGINE AT SALUTE TO STYLE

  • The Aeroboat: a blend of high technology, British engineering and glorious history
  • A scale model of this sophisticated, sleek powerboat will be displayed alongside an original Merlin V12 engine
  • Salute to Style: a celebration of speed on water, air and road

A unique mixture of historic British engineering and cutting-edge design is to be displayed at summer garden party Salute to Style at The Hurlingham Club on 16-19 July: yacht design studio Claydon Reeves is showing their newly-produced model of the Aeroboat alongside the Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 engine destined to power the craft.

A stylish and entirely British project, every single one of the 12 Aeroboat super-yachts destined for production will be powered by a reconditioned, fuel-injected Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 engine, with documented provenance, detuned to 1,100hp and giving a potential speed range of 75-95kts.

Inspired by the sleek lines of the famous Spitfire fighter, from the stern and sweeping tail echoing the wing’s trailing edge to the authentic air intake scoop, the Aeroboat’s throttle and switchgear design is aircraft-inspired and the shock-mounted forward seats are a nod to the Spitfire’s own landing gear.

Like many of the unique classic cars and historic racers displayed during bijoux event Salute to Style at The Hurlingham Club, the Aeroboat is built to customer specifications: behind its retro style influence, the boat is a contemporary, high-tech beautiful creation in carbon fibre, Kevlar and lightweight wood veneer, all British-sourced. Every element of its interior design, from the cockpit to the trim, engine specifications and exterior finishes, can be configured to suit its owner.

At Salute to Style, the Aeroboat and the Merlin V12 engine join a range of prestigious automotive machinery, from Mille Miglia and Le Mans racers to prime examples of worldwide craftsmanship in motoring history, in an elegant celebration of speed on water, air and road.
