- For $3.5 million, the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 is only the latest in a series of high-end boats produced by exclusive automakers.
The first Lamborghini yacht has arrived in North America. In 2020, the Italian supercar manufacturer announced a partnership with Italian superboat manufacturer Tecnomar to produce a limited run of luxury yachts for the global marketplace. Now, the first of these finished boats in the US is waiting for its premiere customer at a dock in South Florida, says in an article published in Architectural Digest.
$3.5 Million Yacht
Dubbed Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63, its name carries a variety of different connotations: The boat is 63 feet long, it has a top speed of 63 knots (which translates to around 72 mph on land), and only 63 of them are being built. This number isn’t random though—it’s an easter egg of sorts, pointing to the year 1963, when Ferruccio Lamborghini founded his namesake car company. Each of the roughly five dozen yachts has a starting price of around $3.5 million—and this is before the inevitable optioning-up with custom colors, materials, trim, and other individuated flourishes. Delivered through Miami-based Prestige Marine, the dealership tells AD that more Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63s are on the way.
Racing inspired seats
Of course, it’s the boat’s signature Lamborghini design elements that truly stand out. Aboard the luxury vessel, you’ll find hexagonal patterns on the interior and exterior, Y-shaped headlamps from the marque’s Sián supercar, a jet-fighter-like cockpit, a pair of racing-inspired seats at the helm, and, of course, V-12 power. However, unlike any production Lamborghini supercar, the Techomar features two of these motors, each of which runs on diesel fuel, and produces around 2,000 horsepower.
Joined similar edition
This is not the first foray into the nautical realm for Lamborghini. In 1968, five years after the founding of his eponymous car company, Ferruccio Lamborghini commissioned a wooden boat from famed Italian shipbuilder Riva and equipped it with a pair of 4.0-liter V-12 engines from his signature sports cars.
Later, the marque produced an outrageously potent 7.2-liter V-12 marine engine for use in powerboats. In the 1980s and 1990s, this motor was occasionally shoehorned into the brand’s equally outrageous LM002, an absurd super-SUV produced in limited numbers, which acted as the precursor to the brand’s current best-seller, the Urus SUV.
The Lamborghini-Tecnomar yacht joins other similar, limited edition, high-end boats produced by exclusive automakers, including Aston Martin, and Mercedes-Benz’s go-fast subsidiary, AMG. These ships are part of a larger initiative among luxury carmakers to create branded lifestyle experiences everywhere their customers may desire to be, including the creation of residential towers by the likes of Aston Martin, Bentley, Porsche, as well as homewares and furniture from Bugatti and a full line of fashion clothing and accessories from Ferrari.
Not to be forgotten within this context is the full line of Lamborghini Tractors, the first vehicle company founded by Ferruccio back in the immediate post–World War II era in Italy and still in production today. We’re quite certain there is not one large enough to tow this superyacht, but the cross-branding opportunity still seems irresistible.
