After making its world premiere in Monaco last September, the prototype Aston Martin AM37 powerboat was presented to the US market for the first time during Yachts Miami Beach. The event drew to a close on Monday.

Designed to carry up to eight people, the AM37 is an 11m powerboat built at the UK premises of Quintessence Yachts.

The boat features a sliding deck that allows owners to completely cover and uncover the cockpit of the boat at the touch of a button.

The wraparound windscreen is made from a single piece of sculpted glass fluidly draped over the AM37’s foredeck. With its extreme double curvature, the windscreen sets a new industry standard, the company claims.

An electro-hydraulic carbon fibre bimini top is stowed above the engine hatch when not in use and a swim platform extending from the aft deck allows for easy access to the water.

At the helm, the AM37’s carbon fibre dashboard echoes styling elements from Aston Martin’s most advanced sports cars. It includes the finest leather with functional features, such as the steering wheel, throttle handles and joystick in polished metal.

The 37-foot model is available in two versions:

  • The AM37 with an estimated top speed of 45 knots and a choice of two 370hp Mercury diesel or two 430hp Mercury petrol engines.
  • The AM37S version with an estimated 50 knots derived from its twin 520hp Mercury petrol engines.
