A renowned yacht designer has unveiled a new concept yacht based on the luxury vehicles of supercar maker Aston Martin.
The Aston Martin Voyage boat was inspired by Aston Martin vehicles such as the Vantage, Rapide, DBS and Virage and was unveiled last week.
De Basto, a Miami-based custom yacht designer, put together the concept as a way to test whether the car brand’s signature design could be transposed onto water.
The answer seems to be an emphatic yes, with the design clearly paying tribute to Aston Martin while absorbing the necessary nautical features.
The roof line, window shapes, front and rear lights, side ventilation, hood details and famous frontal grill are all design features of the car carried over to the boat.
Sadly, the model is very much a concept, and de Basto makes clear that although he has Aston Martin’s permission for the use of their name in the concept, it’s not intended for production or any commercialization.
However, with other brands such as Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and Lancia already lending their names to high-performance boats, perhaps Aston Martin will reconsider sometime soon?
