Jaguar Cars has introduced ‘The Concept Speedboat by Jaguar Cars’ at the international driving debut of the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake. This one-of-a-kind concept demonstrates Jaguar’s design DNA in a package that’s outstanding and totally unexpected. This project to build the Concept Speedboat is headed by Jaguar Director of Design, Ian Callum.
He said that Jaguar knows that its current customers as well as potential ones have lifestyles that are diverse and active. He explained that when the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake was set to be launched, they saw a chance for its design philosophy to be used on an alternative product. He said that the Concept Speedboat exudes power and has the features of a traditional speedboat but with a Jaguar car’s characteristics of sleekness and speed.
In developing the Concept Speedboat, Jaguar Cars consulted with a yacht design specialist and a bespoke design project management firm. The Concept Speedboat has a gel coat fibreglass hull finished on top with a natural teak decking.
This is divided by a carbon fibre fin, which took inspiration from the iconic Jaguar D-Type. It’s seamless how the front of the boat flows into the screen. In addition, the red 2+1 cabin takes after the sportiness of Jaguar cars. Fuel filler caps inspired by the Series 1 XJ represent another nod to the heritage of Jaguar Cars. We know how the boat can be powered and docked via the imitation of its polished aluminium propeller and pop-up mooring post.
