Lamborghini and The Italian Sea Group have unveiled the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63, a collaboration with the automaker that will be available as a limited-edition to pay homage to Lamborghini’s 1963 founding.
The project began with several collaborative sessions with Lamborghini’s Centro Stile and inspiration from the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37, a hybrid supercar that incorporates technology and customizable details.
With a pair of 2,000-hp MAN V-12 engines, the boat will hit an estimated 70 mph and will be the fastest in the Tecnomar fleet. It’s built of carbon fiber — typical of Lamborghini’s model line — to keep her weight down to 24 tons, qualifying for ultra-lightweight classification.
The challenge of reinterpreting the DNA traits of both brands informed the entire project, according to the company. “This yacht represents the significance of creating a valuable partnership, at its best. Our cooperation allows the essence of … style and expertise to be transferred to different worlds, sharing in their diversity to interpret and add value to the final product in a new environment,” says Automobili Lamborghini chairman and CEO Stefano Domenicali in a statement.
“If I had to imagine a Lamborghini on water, this would be my vision,” he adds. “I’m delighted to celebrate this successful collaboration.”
The hull and the superstructure are created from a high-performance shell, developed by naval engineers specializing in hydrodynamic sciences.
The hardtop is inspired by Lamborghini roadsters, and the bow lights are a tribute to the concept car Terzo Millennio and to the Sián FKP 37, both distinctive for their Y-shaped lights. The interiors utilize Italian materials to mimic Lamborghini’s iconic lines, hexagonal shapes and Y-motif, with customizable colors and materials.
The instrument panel evokes a Lambo’s car cockpit with a nautical flair, integrating all navigation and control systems. As in Lamborghini super sports cars, details are finished in carbon fiber, with carbon skin utilized in the seating and on the dash. Even the wheel mimics the sports cars’ distinctive styling.
The start/stop buttons — one for each engine — replicate those used to start a Lamborghini engine. “We announced this partnership in May, and today we present Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63, a motoryacht that will became as futuristic an icon as the car she is inspired by,” says Giovanni Costantino, CEO of The Italian Sea Group.
“Selected owners around the world will own not only get the fastest Tecnomar motoryacht in the fleet, but a Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 masterpiece. I’m proud that we have chosen to create this innovative and challenging project with Automobili Lamborghini, which links technology, supreme design, quality and performance.”
The first boat expected to be available in early 2021.
