Is it a yacht? Is it a Lamborghini? Is it a leading-edge speedboat with a design concept that combines speed and absolute lightness, integrating the heart and soul of its two parent brands? Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 is all this and more. Developed by The Italian Sea Group company Tecnomar, with a contribution from Centro Stile Lamborghini, the yacht is inspired by the Siàn FKP 37, the first hybrid super sports car to be manufactured with custom-made colors and detailing, from which the vessel also borrows the meaning of its name: in Bolognese dialect, “siàn” means “lightning”.
Stefano Rutigliano, Strategy Director of Automobili Lamborghini, the brand that is just one of the reasons for the number 63 in the yacht’s name, uses the following image to sum up the creation: “It is like watching Lamborghini’s DNA race across the sea the same way its super sports cars race across asphalt”. As for the number, 1963 was the year the car manufacturer was founded, the year that the founder of The Italian Sea Group, Giovanni Costantino, was born, the speed in knots the vessel can hit, and the number of feet it is long: 63, a number unique in multiple ways.
The association between the Siàn and the motor yacht is evident in the bespoke interiors Tecnomar designed for the Lamborghini 63, available in two variants with countless options for combining different materials. Highly iconic elements from the luxury automotive brand are in evidence: hexagons on the upholstery, porthole shapes, its clean lines and Y-shape. Colors and materials are fully customizable through the Ad Personam program, which allows purchasers to unleash their creativity on the infinite possibilities of customizing the boat, all the way down to the smallest details.
The driving environment makes it feel just like being behind the wheel of a Lamborghini car, with a nautical interpretation of a steering wheel and dashboard, plus the monitoring and navigation systems necessary at sea. The metaphor continues with the sports seats and double start&stop button, highly-recognizable as straight out of the Lamborghini parts department. That same button unleashes the roar of the super sports car’s engine, but here there are two of them because the boat is twin-engined to reach speeds in excess of 60 knots.
Everything on the vessel required in-depth, high-tech R&D, with the focus on ultralight, high-performance materials like carbon fiber, just like in Lamborghini’s super sports cars. Typical of this family of cars, carbon fiber has ensured the yacht is classified as “ultralight”. Research and technology also underpin the design of the yacht’s external line: a super-sporty, cutting-edge silhouette that pushes the envelope of nautical design traditions. Building on Marcello Gandini’s landmark designs for the iconic Lamborghini Miura and Countach, the hull and superstructure were designed by a team of naval engineers specialized in the study of hydrodynamics. The bow lights are yet another tribute to the Siàn FKP 37 and the Terzo Millennio concept car, both of which feature headlights that express the automotive brand’s hallmark stylistic features.
