Aston Martin AM37 Luxury Yacht Handles & Performs Like A Sports Car

By land or by sea, Mr Bond? Double-o-Seven wannabes looking to make a cool and clean getaway just got another option: Aston Martin's first foray into the luxury yacht market niche.

The AM37 is scheduled to go on sail, er, sale in 2016 and have no doubt, it will leave purchasers shaken AND stirred.

Aston Martin has wisely partnered up with Dutch manufacturer Quintessence Yachts to design, build and equip the AM37. Measuring – you guessed it – 37 feet from stem to stern, the AM37 is said to have a top speed of 60 knots (70 mph) though at press time no engine specs of any kind have been released.

Trust the folks at Aston Martin not to neglect the performance of ANY vehicle bearing their name, however.

When it comes to luxury, the AM37 doesn't fall short. In addition to the standard set of nautical instrumentation, yachtsmen (or yachtswomen) enjoy the convenience of a very car-like HD touchscreen with integral GPS. Leather, wood and brushed metal fittings surround the front pair of bucket seats and the wraparound rear bench.

Stay tuned for updates on pricing and availability but as for the former, we suggest you start saving your extra pocket change now... or even better, 1962. (via AIROWS)
