In the world of luxury mash-ups, we have seen the Porsche Kitchen, the Hermes Helicopter and the Versace private jet. Now comes the Lamborghini yacht.
Fenice Milano, the auto aftermarket specialists, and Mauro Lecchie, the Italian designer known for producing cars, have teamed up to create a prototype of a yacht inspired by Lamborghini. As you can see from the pictures, the wedge-shaped hull has all the sinister-looking details we have come to expect from Lambos–the sloping nose, the angled vents, the roaring engines.
With giant twin engines and body made of wood and Kevlar, the Lambo boat “combines high performance and low power consumption,” according to its makers. The company hasn’t given out the exact engine specs or speed.
Driving a Lambo boat is likely to be far more comfy than squeezing behind the wheel of its namesake. The cockpit has two outside stern decks, a double sofa bed, a bar and entertainment center with large windows. The interior also has a bathroom and separate shower, in addition to a guest bedroom with bathroom on the bow. (Unlike another new yacht, which will spray champagne from its showers, the Lambo shower appears to be limited to water).
There is no information yet on the boat’s price or availability. But it is likely that the buyers will similar to the Lambo demographic–young, male and loaded.
