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.
The GTT can run 21 knots (24 phm/39 km/h) and can traverse over 3,00 nautical miles (3,913 mi/6,297 km), enough to cross the Atlantic. However, the top speed will be restricted at 6 knots (7phm/11km/h), running on electric power. You can opt for brown or beige leather trim, and you can match carbon fiber and marble detailing with it. Interested buyers can choose the color of their yacht, its interiors and also the electronic system to match their taste. If you want to know all the available options, then you can visit the yacht configurator.
Want a sample on how expensive the options are? There's an optional sports package that is worth $278,000 that has special paint, mahogany, carbon fiber trim and exercise bike. Then there's the $61,000 sundeck bar, $50,000 sliding door and $300,000 for the Minotti furniture. If your only problem is how to get rid of your extra cash, then you can opt for a $40,000 throw pillow set while another $45,000 will get you crew uniforms and $50,000 will give you six sets of Egyptian cotton beddings with matching towels. Fancy a diving board? Then you need not to worry as this is also offered for the price of $20,000.
You must act quickly if you are interested to purchase this super yacht because only 7 of these will be built. But you must prepare a jaw dropping €11,900,000 ($13,279,500) to secure this boat. The first of its the line will be made in Italy and is geared to be debuted at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show. Moreover 2 smaller alternatives, a 100 ft (30m) and 85 ft (26m) models are in the works and will be possibly revealed this year.
