Porsche just launched this epic £12 million hybrid superyacht”

Luxury auto maker Porsche has tried its hand at building a superyacht. It has also been created to include similar shapes and designs to Porsche cars from the company's long illustrious history, for example the material used on the throw cushions is the same as you'll find on the seats of a 911R.

Launched in Viareggio, Italy, the GTT 115 is defined as "the modern gentlemen's superyacht" by Sergei Dobroserdov, CEO of Dynamiq, and we gotta admit it looks pretty cool in its "Rhodium Grey metallic paint".

"We made a decision to limit production to seven units to make the GTT 115 a true collector's item". Indeed, it would be an understatement to refer to it as spectacular.

A collaborative effort with Monaco-based yacht builder Dynamiq and Studio F.A Porsche, the 115 footer has been given a price tag of just over £12.3 million.

Now, I know virtually nothing about Porsches and even less about luxury boats, but what immediately pops to my eye about this 35-metre vessel is its sleek, futuristic design.

It has been designed as a hybrid yacht, with a range of 3,400 nautical miles and can travel at a cruising speed of 21 knots thanks to two V12 diesel engines that produce 1,627bhp. "Cream leather dominates the colours and materials, along with alcantara fabric and indirect LED lighting, as is common in auto headliners", it adds. Formerly known as Porsche Design Studio and now trading under the name Studio F.A. Porsche, the company's industrial design and product design arm pens everything from watches to external hard drives, from eyewear to cutlery - and cars aren't the only mode of transport with a Porsche stamp on them.
