First Aston Martin powerboat features disclosed in Dubai
- Revolutionary new series of stunning powerboats
- Worldwide debut for innovative sliding deck
- Unique onboard technologies with interactive voice control
Dubai, 5th June 2015: Quintessence Yachts and Aston Martin have revealed more details of the first Aston Martin powerboat, which will be completed in September. Following on from the official presentation of the renderings at the Aston Martin HQ in Gaydon in April, a number of revolutionary features of the new AM37 were showcased in the Armani Hotel in Dubai. These included the powerboat’s unique sliding deck and a cool collection of onboard computer technologies. The first powerboat to carry the name and the famous wings of this iconic brand represents the translation of the Aston Martin’s DNA in terms of ‘beauty, power and soul’ into a totally new maritime concept. This impression was further enhanced in Dubai as a number of technologically advanced yet user-friendly features were disclosed to a specially invited audience by Quintessence Yachts and Aston Martin Dubai, in partnership with the Berkeley Group. One of the most striking is the sliding deck which allows owners to completely cover the cockpit of the boat at the end of their day out on the water, protecting it from the elements and uninvited guests.
The deck consists of three carbon panels which can be operated by the electronic command of the AM37 key, folding under the aft deck to uncover the cockpit. Once the cockpit is open, the aft deck slides back to facilitate access to the dock and allow those onboard to easily dive into the water and open the swimming ladder. The deck can also be raised to give access to the engine room, storage compartments and bimini top.
This unprecedented feature exudes comfort and convenience, removing the need to place all onboard gear and cushions into the interior at the end of each day. With a simple click of a key, owners can close their boat and leave it ready for the next ride. The extraordinary experience provided by the AM37 is further enhanced by its exclusive onboard technologies. The air conditioning, fridge and espresso machine can be started on remote while still at home or driving to the marina. The AM37 also features integrated navigation, control monitor and entertainment systems, with advanced multimedia functions and interactive voice control. The user interface of the multimedia and entertainment system is installed in the 15-inch HD touchscreen on the dashboard, which guests can also use. Owners will have their own dedicated display for monitoring engine status and navigation.
More features related to the performance and innovative technologies of the AM37 will be disclosed at further events in the run-up to the official presentation of the first Aston Martin powerboat this September.

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.

Quintessence Yachts unveils first Aston Martin speedboat designs
Gaydon, 29 April 2015 – During an exclusive pre-launch event held at the Aston Martin headquarters in the UK, Quintessence Yachts has released details of the first designs now under construction as part of a unique partnership with the famous car brand. The AM37 is a fast 37 foot leisure boat that synthesises tradition and innovation to offer the ultimate ‘driving on the water’ experience.
A comprehensive digital exhibition of artworks and renderings was set up at the Design Reception in Gaydon to showcase the in-depth cooperation between Aston Martin, Quintessence Yachts and Mulder Design. Together the parties have created a genuine expression of artisan skill while incorporating the very latest technological trends.
Quintessence Yachts gave Mulder Design a naval architect brief based upon the Dutch company’s ability to provide the framework of the design to Aston Martin and then ensure that style changes made in the UK complemented the hull’s performance. The design process has involved a constant exchange of ideas for each single item from the dashboard to the deck and the interiors, with the full commitment of the Aston Martin team providing inputs and feedback on components and features.
The resulting boats are a pioneering delineation into the yachting environment of Aston Martin style in its purest sense. The AM37 combines the highest degree of technology and innovation in a genuinely unique manner that is sure to delight those who understand the Aston Martin credo of ‘power, beauty and soul’.
Based upon a concept of creating elegant fast boats with an exclusive design and a sporty character, the 37 foot model will be presented in two version: the AM37 S, a true sportyacht with a maximum speed of 60 knots, and the AM37, which is more of a gran turismo leisure boat with an even higher degree of luxury and a maximum speed of around 50 knots.
A dedicated Quintessence Yachts facility is building the boats in the United Kingdom in order to enhance the British DNA of the Aston Martin speedboats. The production process deploys state-of-the-art vacuum infusion technology to ensure maximum quality control with the hull being made in high-tech composite and structural parts in carbon fibre.
AM37 and the AM37 S are the first step in a strategic venture between Quintessence Yachts and Aston Martin that will eventually result in a wide range of top quality speedboats.
Headquartered in the Netherlands, Quintessence Yachts has a passion for innovation and exploring new concepts in the classic yachting world. Its core mission is to offer intimate maritime experiences related to style, performance and design. Quintessence Yachts’ Supervisory Board is chaired by Henk de Vries, Director of Feadship.
Established in 1979, Mulder Design has enjoyed a successful career spanning over three decades. The past 35 years have seen over 600 of the company’s designs come to life including the now famous high-speed yachts Octopussy, Moonraker and The World Is Not Enough. The name of this family-run company has become synonymous with high quality and fast super-yachts.
