Aston Martin is the latest luxury brand to join the likes of Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and Lancia to lend its brand name to high-performance boats or yacht concepts. Specifically, Luiz de Basto, a Miami-based custom yacht designer, has recently unveiled the Aston Martin Voyage 55’ motor yacht.
Inspired by Aston Martin vehicles such as the DBS, Rapide, Vantage and Virage, the Aston Martin Voyage 55’ motor yacht concept was put together in order to see whether the Aston Martin’s signature luxury car design could be turned into a luxury boat.
The result? A boat whose lines, lights, ventilation and decorative details all reflect the Aston Martin automotive design and heritage.
Unfortunately, the Aston Martin Voyage 55’ motor yacht concept will remain just that, a yachting concept. While de Basto has obtained Aston Martin’s permission to use its brand name for his boating concept, there are no plans to put the boat into production.
Nevertheless, anyone interested in learning more about Luiz de Basto’ Aston Martin Voyage 55’ motor yacht concept should check out a lengthy article in CharterWorld.com where de Basto’ talked about how he came up with his design as well as his other passion for both cars and car designs.
