Porsche is shifting gears, taking to the high seas with the Grand Turismo Transatlantic (GTT) 115 Hybrid—a 35-meter, all-aluminum superyacht modeled after the classic sports car.
Dynamiq, a Monaco-based yacht builder, released initial images of the yacht, which was designed by Studio F.A.
“The Dynamiq GTT 115 is designed to appeal to car lovers and forward-thinking yacht owners who appreciate the advantages of speed, style and our philosophy of intelligent performance,” Roland Heiler, managing director at Porsche Design Group, said in a statement.
The luxury superyacht is powered by a combination of 1213 kW MAN engines and the latest Fortjes 5000 pods, allowing it to travel as fast as 21 knots. But some of the sports cars’ original features are still there, including the familiar Porsche Carrara white, Rhodium Silver, Chalk or Monte-Carlo Blue colors. Other signature features are the Pepita houndstooth deck cushions borrowed from the Porsche 911 R, window panels that resemble those of the 2017 Porsche 911 Targa 4S and the single-blade red rear lights.
Inside, saddle brown, Luxor beige leather, Sahara Noir marble and carbon fiber trim, encompass the three or four sizable cabins that could comfortably fit half a dozen guests—with a 6-person crew attending to their needs.
The cost for all those amenities? $13 million.
Seven limited edition GTT 115 yachts are under construction, the first of which will be unveiled at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show in September.
