Lamborghini and The Italian Sea Group have previewed a new super yacht which is set to hit waters early next year using a pair of MAN 2,000hp V12 engines. Launched under ISG’s Tecnomar performance brand as the Lamborghini 63 (the number denoting Lambo’s inaugural year) it takes inspiration from several V12 models, including the Sián FKP 37. There are borrowed details, lights and even a Lambo helm – while the construction is also said to be Sián-inspired.
We suspect that means more philosophy than panels shared between said 819hp hybrid supercar and Tecnomar’s 60-knot capable halo model, with the 63 hull and the superstructure made from “a high-performance shell”, designed by naval engineers (as you’d hope) that “specialise in hydrodynamic sciences”. The shell is said to borrow lines from the Miura and Countach, while the hard top is shaped with Lambo roadsters in mind. Those bow lights mimic the designs of the Terzo Millennio concept and Sián FKP 37.
No Lambo boat would be complete without a fighter jet starter switch, of which there are two – one for each MAN-made motor – and identical to the ones used on the firm’s road cars. The driver’s seat is also trimmed in Lambo’s carbon fabric, while the steering wheel, or helm, is a copy too. There’s also composite on the switchgear, an Italian flag badge and Lambo fonts on the dials to complete the look. Throw on some coloured lighting and you’ve got an ocean-going equivalent of a chrome wrapped Aventador.
“This yacht represents the significance of creating a valuable partnership, at its best: our co-operation allows the essence of both organisations’ 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,” said Lambo CEO Stefano Domenicali. “If I had to imagine a Lamborghini on water, this would be my vision. I’m delighted to celebrate this successful collaboration.”
Such collaborations are not entirely novel, of course - Aston Martin has previously catered for the powerboat market, as has Brabus. Lamborghini labels the 63 as a creation fit to satisfy “the demands of the collector as well as those loving life at sea”, which suggests the yacht’s yet-to-be-revealed price will amount to a lot. The biggest Tecnomar yachts can go for in excess of nine million pounds; even smaller boats like the 63 remain seven figure purchases – and that’s before the Lamborghini cache.
