A £12m Porker for the water

Porsche's £12m super yacht

PORSCHE have launched a luxury yacht using design cues from the 911 and Mission E concept.

Seriously, the German giants have revealed a bespoke super-yacht which comes complete with a spa pool, accommodation for 12 passengers and stunning carbon fibre furniture.

The gloriously ostentatious vessel measure 115-feet in length and was built in a collaboration between Studio F.A Porsche and Monaco-based yacht builder Dynamic.

The aluminium built craft is inspired by cars such as the Porsche Mission E Concept and the embedded with ‘Porsche DNA’.

The German car manufacturer also said the boat was but for “car-lovers and forward thinking yacht owners” who have an appreciation of speed and style as well as Porsche’s “philosophy of intelligent performance.”

Powering the hybrid yacht is three variable-speed generators making it more environmentally friendly than a traditional yacht.

These are paired with two diesel engines which produce a combined 12,594 bhp and the two electric motors produce 20.8kW.

This allows the yacht to reach a top speed of 21 knots (24mph) while in diesel-only mode.

It’s named the Dynamiq GTT 115 Hybrid and it made its first public appearance in Italy this week before it is officially launched at the Monaco Yacht Show on September 27th.

Speaking in Viareggio, Italy, Dynamiq CEO Sergei Dobroserdov said: “The launch is the culmination of a long process of design and development to introduce a new kind of superyacht to the market.

“The modern gentlemen’s superyacht, the GTT 115 draws on the latest technology to combine comfortable high-speed cruising over 21 knots with efficient fuel consumption and long range of more than 3,400 nautical miles.

“GTT 115 is undoubtedly the most advanced superyacht at the Monaco Yacht Show with her round-bilge hull form, podded propulsion, Hull Vane and exclusively developed stabilisation system with 4 fins and interceptors.”

“We decided to limit production to seven units to make the GTT 115 a true collector’s item.”

Inside the yacht is a number of spacious cabins with seven foot high ceilings, carbon fibre and marble detailing and furniture inspired by the Porsche 911R.

The bad news is that just seven models of the super-yacht will be built and you’ll need to splash out a cool £12 million.

Makes the 911 look a bargain.
