An incredible waterbound gadget is appearing on the horizon, courtesy of Aston Martin, and it seems like something more suited to a new James Bond movie rather than a near-future reality. The luxury speedboat of the future, although still a concept, is closer to seeing the light of day and already generating serious buzz. AM37S as it’s being called, is the company’s first voyage into the depths of water and presents a revolutionary hi-tech interpretation of yachts.
Expected to enter the production phase later in 2016, it will be launched in Monaco. For now, it is revealed that there will be two captain chairs and a wrap-around bench with the capacity to accommodate 8 guests along the luxurious journey. The deck will open to cover the space for a seamless path onto the vessel and then slide back to expose the austere interior. Top speed of the AM37S is announced to be 60 knots but the real striking feature comes from the hi-tech capabilities of the futuristic yacht.
After years of research and development, Aston Martin are debuting a brand new concept for the nautical world in the form of the first tablet-controlled yacht in the world. Design and functionality are taken to a new level with every single feature on the boat being voice or pad-controlled – from the air conditioning, and the fridge to the navigation. This is achieved through the seamless integration of the control monitor, entertainment and navigation systems into a 15-inch touchscreen that is voice activated and controlled.
For increased security owners will be given their own unique cluster with a dedicated display for monitoring engine status and navigation. It will be keyless and only use a fingerprint sensor. With its sleek and aerodynamic exterior and striking hi-tech capabilities, the AM37S presents a powerful balance of beauty and engineering.
