- Lamborghini and a yachtmaker called the Italian Sea Group probably have many customers in common: both cater to people who have millions to spend on high-horsepower, limited-production luxury vehicles.
- This one, the Technomar for Lamborghini 63, is a yacht priced starting over $3 million that will be available next year.
- Each of its twin 24.2-liter MAN V-12 diesels makes 2000 horsepower and 4794 lb-ft of torque.
You know the feeling: you gaze out over your garage full of Lamborghinis and feel the familiar tinge of melancholy, because you can't drive them on the water. Okay, there was that one time with the Aventador and Lake Havasu, but that's Lloyd's of London's problem now. Every other day, your Lambos stay dry and the call of the sea goes straight to voice mail. But not anymore, amici. Beginning next year, you'll be able to park a Lambo at your dock, in the form of the Technomar for Lamborghini 63.
A collab between Lamborghini and the Italian Sea Group (which builds Admiral and Technomar yachts at its shipyard on the Mediterranean), the 63 has a base price that's the equivalent of just under $3.4 million, but we're sure that'll go up once you start personalizing with your trademark purple ostrich interior and Gucci bathroom fixtures.
Each of the 63's twin 24.2-liter MAN V-12 diesels makes 2000 horsepower and 4794 lb-ft of torque. Redline is a very un-Lamborghini 2300 rpm. At 63 feet long, 18 feet wide, and displacing 24 tons, the Technomar is not what you'd call trailerable. The wee yacht's top speed is 60 knots, which translates to 69 mph for landlubbers. Cruising speed is 47 mph. Both those numbers sound conservative, given that MAN supplied three of these engines for a 100-foot yacht, and it went nearly as fast—55 knots. Sure, it had an extra engine, but a 100-foot boat is way, way, bigger than a 63-foot one. Anyway, if we were commissioning one of these, we'd demand 80 mph out of it. Hey, this is a Lambo!
As with Cigarette's AMG boats, the Technomar takes its design inspiration from cars—the bow lights ape the headlights of the Sián FKP 37 hybrid hypercar, and the start buttons are actual Lamborghini items. The helm, too, is designed to look like a Lamborghini cockpit, with two bucket seats surrounded by about an acre of decking.
You worked hard for your money (hahahahaha!) and the number 63 is working pretty hard here, since that's the length of the boat, the year Lamborghini was founded, and the number they say they'll build. Which, in multimillion-dollar boat terms, isn't exactly low production. It's kind of like if Lamborghini said that they'll only build 4980 Sián FKP 37s because that's its length, in millimeters.
As extremely jaded yacht owners ourselves, our only question is, like, is this a big yacht? Or is this the boat that you use to get to your big yacht? It's kind of a tweener, in Monaco terms. It's also not as quick as the latest 59-foot AMG Cigarette creation, the six-engine, 82-mph Tirranna. But that's not the point. The point is that finally, you can drive your Lamborghini to your Lamborghini, and the second one is in the ocean, and nobody's soaking wet and calling the police or blaming anything on a goose in the road that nobody else saw. And for that reason and possibly a few others, we're really looking forward to 2021.
