Aston Martin AM37
With an automotive background (the Van Rooy family has been trading cars since 1924, and Peter worked as Sales Director for the Dutch boutique sports cars maker Spyker), Peter Van Rooy is Director of Marketing and Business Development at Quintessence Yachts, manufacturers of the very first Aston Martin AM37 day boat. It is this cross-fertilisation between the automotive and yachting worlds that inspires him: “The AM37 is a piece of art in its own right and sets a new standard in terms of performance, engineering and finishing. I cannot think of any other example that has taken the ‘aquamotive’ concept to such a high level. It is an absolute pleasure to represent such a wonderful product.”

    The first White Stone AM37 will be available at the MYS2018 (Monaco Yacht Show) from 26th-29th September. After an introduction period of 4 years Aston Martin, Mulder Design and Quintessence Yachts created a new category in luxury powerboats. A real Aston Martin ‘experience' on the water. Design, style, technology and comfort are combined in a 100% Aston Martin-yacht. The AM37 has the best of all worlds and is a pure translation of the Aston Martin DNA. 

    The AM37 powerboat combines the sensation of an Aston Martin with the classy environment of a one-of-a-kind powerboat. The AM37 will also be fitted with Bravo Three XR sterndrives. A counter-rotating dual propeller arrangement adds to the power and acceleration while also enhancing efficiency at lower speeds. You also have the option to add Axius Joystick Piloting, ensuring fantastic manoeuvrability and adding to the overall sense of cool. These are just a few teasers of the design features and equipment that come together to create a totally new category of powerboat. The AM37 translates the best traditions of the automotive experience into an unprecedented water-racing-quality of style and performance.

    Three different versions are available:

    The AM37

    The ‘Gran Turismo’ leisure powerboat with a maximum speed of around 44 knots, and premium-class quality and refinement. You have a choice between 2 x 370 hp Mercury diesels or 2 x 430 hp Mercury petrol engines.

    The AM37 S

    She is fitted with twin 520 hp Mercury ‘Racing' petrol engines for a maximum speed of up to 50 knots. It offers the ultimate sports driving experience on the water for every occasion, from a runabout to a superior commuter.

    Quitenssence Yachts and Aston Martin are planning to build 7 personalised AM37’s next year. At the MYS2018 interested buyers are invited to test the AM37s in White Stone and they will be able to apply their personal wishes.
