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.
Palmer Johnson CEO Timur Mohamed revealed in a statement that the challenge was to have a yacht that would offer a unique experience while having its own personality. This is seen, he added, in its unmatched quality, sophisticated style, and the smooth luxury. This yacht, continued Timur, will clearly raise expectations much further. CEO Timur said that this is why the open deck has a lower section where one can sun bathe through a sun pad or take a dip in the Jacuzzi. It even has a champagne bar. Timur said further that in between the forward seats and the Jacuzzi, the company even placed a fire pit.
In terms of accommodations, there is a master cabin with a salon adjacent to it. Considering that the goal was to have a luxurious feel to it, the inside shows the use of exquisite leather as well as other details like carbon fiber, aluminum, and polished wood. It even has marble.
Going to the outside, the main feature is a center hull that has two sponsons in order to help with roll dampening and stability, especially when it is speeding up. If the Niniette 66 appears to be too much to handle, Palmer Johnson revealed that it is part of a new series and it will soon release models that measure from 50 feet to 80 feet.
So just how much will this yacht be priced? Well according to some, if you can afford a Ferrari, that doesn’t mean a thing. No price was revealed so far. However, if you did manage to get yourself a Chiron, then acquiring the Niniette 66 won’t likely be an issue.
