Aston Martin Now Has Boats And It Is Also Going Deep With A Submarine Too

OK. We are going to make this quick. Aston Martin is extending its reach beyond land to the water. First, it designed a beautiful boat and then, came a submarine. Yes. You are not hearing things. Aston Martin has gotten itself into a partnership with private sub maker, Triton Submarines, to create a “strictly-limited edition vehicle” under a project called Neptune. While it is being unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show (as was the boat), very little is known about this Aston Martin-touched Triton Low Profile three-person sub.

This Green Lamborghini Aventador Comes With A Matching Speedboat

An aircraft can go anywhere, but you can’t say the same for a car – even for an exotic, super fast car like the Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster. However, that’s only partially true if we are talking about the “run-of-the-mill” Aventador, not if you have the so-called Lamborghini Lovers “Ultimate SV Package,” currently on sale on James Edition. With the Lamborghini Lovers “Ultimate SV Package,” you’d be bagging yourself a highly customized 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster that only has 700 miles (1,127 kilometers) on the clock and in special order color of Verde Singh, but you will also be scoring a matching color and coordinated trim 2017 Marine Technologies “Mei” 52’ G6 speedboat, so your need for speed can continue even when the land ends.

This Sci-fi-ish Speedboat-Submarine Hybrid Piques The Marines Interest

Remember Hyper-Sub which briefly mentioned in a post couple of days ago? Yea. That’s the other speedboat/submarine hybrid that may have piqued the U.S.M.C’s interest. However, unlike the obvious made-for-military aesthetic of the SEAL Carrier, Hyper-Sub looks very much like a futuristic ride you would expect from a August Power or James Bond movie. It looks totally non-military and non-conventional as far as sub goes. However, what it has to offer probably begs to differ. Anywho, Hyper-Sub, along with many defense contractors, showed off its ware at the simulated amphibious maneuver at Camp Pendleton, dressed in tactical-approved black paint, back in April this year (read more HERE). Anyways, to cut long story short, Hyper-Sub is a ship-to-shore capable vessel that can travel undetected beneath the surface of the water in between.

This Speedboat Is Capable Of 30 Knots And It Is Also A 15 nm Submarine Too

In the recent IMDEX Asia 2017 in Singapore, defence contractors were again eagerly showing off their latest military hardware to entice governments from the world over. It seems like in this year’s show, marine-related technologies were in abundance (probably due to the maritime tension in this region) and among the sea of dark and light gray hardware, the JFD SEAL Carrier Swimmer Delivery Vehicle had most of our attention and for good reasons. As the product name implies, this dark, tube-like sea vehicle is designed with special operations in mind, but what the product did not explicitly point out is, it is actually a submarine/speedboat hybrid.

Aeroboat Day-Boat Powered By Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 Engine

when you have a watercraft that looks as elegant as the Aeroboat by Claydon Reeves, it is only right that it graces a prestigious event like the Salute to Style which will be taking place at The Hurlingham Club on July 16-19. this Brit designed and built futuristic day-boat is powered by a reconditioned, fuel-injected Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 engine, ‘detuned’ to 1,100 horses which will provide it ample enough power to make an estimated top speed of between 75 and 95 knots (86 and 109 mph). for the design of the watercraft, yacht design studio Claydon Reeves looked to the famous World War II fighter plane, Spitfire for inspiration. this design inspiration can be clearly observed from the stern and sweeping tail that reminiscences the vintage fighter’s wing trailing edge to the authentic air intake scoop.

1990 Gar Wood 33′ Baby Gar “Victoria”

having a vintage boat means missing out in modern amenities for your leisurely needs, but with the 1990 Gar Wood 33′ Baby Gar “Victoria”, you can have the cake and eat it too, because, as noted in the product’s name, this particular Gar Wood was actually built under license in 1990 by Turcotte Brothers, which makes it a replica and not the real deal vintage that could have dubious sea-worthiness. but make no mistake, this is still the same Baby Gar runabouts you may know from the 1920s, but with the added benefits attributed by modern build methods such as a cold-molded epoxy construction that encapsulate the boat’s mahogany, resulting in a lightweight and yet strong and low maintenance hull.

XSR Interceptor Cruiser

with a name like XSR Interceptor Cruiser, it is bound to strike fear to any potential water threats. that said, it is also quite obvious that the consumer market isn’t what this awesome watercraft is targeted at, but it is still worthy of a mention, nonetheless. built around a fully composite monocoque structure, the XSR Interceptor Cruiser features a deep ‘V’ hull that is optimized for speeds up to 80 knots (148 km/h or 92 mph). for the initiated, that speed is well considered pretty damn fast on water and is kind of an equivalent to sport car-grade performance, and for that, it has the ‘comfort’ to match. don’t go about expecting luxury appointment cos’ this ain’t your Caribbean yacht, though.
