Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene looks very much like a yacht

Would you like your convertible to be inspired by a yacht? Well, you do not have to imagine it anymore - thanks to the Bentley Continental GT Convertible and Mulliner for building one. With its size and opulence, there is no doubt that a yacht would enter your mind when seeing this model. This was made possible by Mulliner, which gave it the Galene Edition treatment. Overall, it has a droptop just like that of a yacht. In case you were wondering, Galene is a very apt name as it’s from the Greek goddess of calm seas.

For Mulliner to achieve this look, they had to work with Princess Yachts for some design cues that are necessary. For instance, the Continental GT Convertible was finished in a Glacier White paint that is accented with a Sequin Blue stripe on the lower end of the car, matching the dark blue roof. The convertible is equipped with a set of 21-inch polished Propeller Wheels.

The interior has plenty more design elements that you would associate with yachts. The cabin is made of a combination of Linen, Portland, Brunel, and Camel tinted leather - creams, taupes and nudes that will make you feel like you’re on a high-end boat. This is complemented by the cabin’s trim in the same Glacier White paint. There is even a hand-painted image of the super yacht on the dashboard for more detail, which was made by illustrator Jaume Vilardell. The trunk floor is more unconventional this time, with the open-pore Pinstripe Walnut finish. You can also find the same finish on the center stack and around the gearshift.

Design your own Dynamiq GTT 115 Porsche Yacht with the newly released online configurator

Let us take a break from discussing new cars’ engines, features, and designs. For now, let us put ourselves in the shoes of the extremely wealthy and plan how we would want our superyacht to appear. Porsche, the builder of this yacht, has fortunately made an online configurator to help every potential customer customize it to fill every one of their needs.

Porsche's car designs are easily recognizable on the streets. In fact, it has released numerous 911 units, adding to its popularity. But now Porsche is demonstrating that its talent and expertise know no bounds and is venturing into the high seas with its plan of building a super yacht. Concept designs of the 115-foot (35 m) 'GTT 115 Hybrid vessel has been made public by the Monaco-based yacht builder Dynamiq.

It is said to boast of integrated classic Porsche model cues. The GTT 115 concept is the brainchild of the joint collaboration of boat building firm Vripack and Studio F.A. Porsche, one of the design studios that spawned Porsche Design sunglasses, watches and one-off pieces catered to its wealthy patrons. Porsche mainly focused on the exterior design, while Vripack came up with the round bilge all-aluminum hull and significant hydrodynamic elements. Moreover, the boat's shallow draft of 1.45m (4.75 ft) will highly contribute to smooth cruising in the open seas, Dynamiq added.

Palmer Johnson reveals luxury Niniette 66 yacht as Bugatti Chiron mate

As if owning a Bugatti Chiron was not enough, the luxury automaker has partnered with yacht builder Palmer Johnson to release the Bugatti Niniette 66. For those who want a yacht that best complements their Chiron, this is clearly intended for you.

With a length of 66 feet, as implied by the name, maximum speed has been measured to be 44 knots. In terms of land-based transportation, this is around 50 mph.

If you’re wondering though, this is not something that both companies decided to do on the fly. This particular project had its beginnings going as far back as 2015. It was during this time that the two companies decided to come up with a product that would combine their strength in order to deliver the best on-water experience. While they did manage to do just that, one is likely to see that they were able to incorporate the 8.0-liter W16 engine of the Chiron that could deliver 1,479 hp. The Niniette 66 instead utilizes the usual MAN V8 marine engine that is capable of either 1,000 hp or 1,200 hp. Meanwhile the MJP waterjets are responsible for moving the yacht forward. However, with a draft measuring around four feet, it can travel in shallow water without any problems.

It is a Lexus on water. Lexus has been known as one of the big names in the global luxury sector of the automotive industry. Its expertise in building luxurious yet still dynamic vehicles has allowed Lexus to create intimately premium vehicles on land. Just recently, Lexus has shown that its expertise and elegance could also be taken to the water – with the unveiling of the one-off Sport Yacht Concept, which is currently on display at Di Lido Island on Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach.

Designed by the Toyota Marine Department in Japan and built by the Marquis-Carver Yacht Group in the United States, this one-off Sport Yacht Concept shows off Lexus’ premium styling and power as adapted for maritime use. Easily noticeable is the beautiful dolphin-like shape of the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept, making it very suitable for a short cruise on the sea.

This sports yacht concept boasts of distinct CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) construction, allowing it to be around 1,000 kg (2,200 lbs) lighter than a similar yacht made from FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic). Its design – particularly on the lower hull – allows the Sports Yacht Concept to further reduce water resistance while enhancing its handling when cruising at higher speeds.

Mercedes-Benz Style and Silver Arrows Marine are showcasing designs for a luxury motor yacht at the ongoing 2012 Monaco Yacht Show, which is scheduled from September 19 to 22.  The luxury motor yacht, the Granturismo, merges design elements of Mercedes-Benz vehicles with innovations thus far unknown in the boat industry.

These make the Granturismo a progressive and very appealing luxury yacht carrying design language of Mercedes-Benz. The 14-meter long Granturismo’s mobility in water also signifies the next stage in Daimler's vision of all-encompassing mobility – with Mercedes-Benz vehicles on land and the Eurocopter EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style in the air.

The luxury motor yacht is currently being developed and will be produced by Silver Arrows Marine, a UK-registered boat-building company. Its team includes world-renowned marine architects Martin Francis and Tommaso Spadolini. Francis and Spadolini have designed some of the most capable and luxurious craft in the world today.

The Strand Craft 166, which is designed entirely around an automotive theme, is a steadfast superyacht that is daring as it is outrageous (also check the previous Strand Craft 122). Customers who want that new leather smell would surely love this yacht. Adding to the yacht's sleek profile are the radar mast and retractable flybridge that retreat into the skin of the yacht when not in use. Both can be deployed independently of each other and are available only when they are required, ensuring the yacht keeps the cleanest possible lines for making that first impression.

Strengthening this philosophy are the twin concealed entrances to the yacht, hiding the stairway to the upper aft deck as well as providing access to the garage, bar and lounge areas.

The yacht's enormous length, low stance and curled haunches lend the vessel a dynamic aesthetic that is certain to turn heads in the most well appointed marinas. Hidden beneath the carbon fiber-inlaid fore deck is a sun deck equipped with a large jacuzzi, sporting a built-in bar to ensure that every party is well catered for.
