There’s a Porsche superyacht because regular yachts are for suckers
There’s a whole world of luxury carmakers who also design superyachts out there, a world you rarely see because, well, you probably aren’t loaded enough to afford one. As simple as that.
But that didn’t stop you from admiring the 20-metre Niniette 66 from Bugatti, which came out in March this year. And — we bet — that won’t prevent you from checking out with awe the new GTT 115, a superyacht which is the product of a collaboration between Dynamiq and Studio F.A. Porsche.
Now, I know virtually nothing about Porsches and even less about luxury boats, but what immediately pops to my eye about this 35-metre vessel is its sleek, futuristic design.
Launched in Viareggio, Italy, the GTT 115 is defined as “the modern gentlemen’s superyacht” by Sergei Dobroserdov, CEO of Dynamiq, and we gotta admit it looks pretty cool in its “Rhodium Grey metallic paint.”
GTT 115 seems to blend performance and efficiency really well, as it can sail at over 21 knots maximum with a cruising range of 3,400 nautical miles.
We probably have to thank Porsche for the boat’s very German minimalist, elegant concept. As acknowledged by the Monaco-based company, the yacht has a very peculiar design: “its fluid lines, side contours and balanced proportions recall the drop-shaped, overstretched surfaces of the Porsche 911.”
There are echoes everywhere, even in the smallest details, such as the boat’s cleat (where you tie a knot) mirroring the car’s taillight or the frame of the sun shade sharing similarities to lines of the sports car.
Here it is if you want to make a comparison:
Even the yacht’s interior cites the automobile design:
“The rooms are visually connected by decorative aluminium and wooden slats, inspired by the dashboard of the Porsche Mission E. Brown, and cream leather dominates the colours and materials, along with alcantara fabric and indirect LED lighting, as is common in car headliners.”
It’s basically a Porsche on water.
There are only 7 units available so hurry up if you want go get one! It comes at a listed price of just €13,950,000 ($16,720,000).
