Design and Technology
What do you get when two giants of Italian design join forces? The Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 – a thrilling motor yacht which fuses storied design heritage with cutting edge nautical engineering.
There are collaborations, and then there is the partnership forged between the Italian Sea Group’s Tecnomar brand and Lamborghini. The result – a truly unique motor yacht which brings together the pinnacle of avant-garde design in both supercars and superyachts – sets a new standard.
“The Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 is more than an amalgamation, it is a fusion of two high-end DNAs to create a new ‘being',” says Giovanni Costantino, Founder and CEO of the Italian Sea Group. “It is ultra-modern, technologically advanced and a new emblem of the great Italian design tradition.”
The challenge was how to incorporate the heritage and distinctive design features of Lamborghini cars into a high performance motor yacht. “We absolutely didn't want to make a supercar-on-water, so the main goal was to design a real yacht with Lamborghini's body and soul,” says Costantino.
A gem – it is a hymn to the great Italian savoir faire
Inspired by the legendary Countach and the Sián FKP 37 hybrid car, the exterior look is unmistakably Lamborghini. From the hexagonal shapes and sharp angles to the hard top and the unique silhouette of those models – one curved line from front to rear.
Powered by twin MAN V12-2000hp engines, the use of carbon fibre results in a maximum weight of 24 tons. Every edition is custom made with a choice of three layouts, and can be varnished in any colour in the Lamborghini colour chart.
The number 63 is significant to both marques: 1963 was Automobili Lamborghini’s foundation year, as well as the year of Giovanni Costantino’s birth; 63 is the number of knots the yacht can reach – making it the fastest in Tecnomar’s fleet; and its length in feet.
How was Tecnomar was able to replicate the ‘feel’ of a Lamborghini in a yacht? “By working on an emotional level rather than following a commercial brief,” Costantino explains. “We used our instinct, our passion and our love for that combination of speed, style and uniqueness that makes Italian supercars so loved worldwide. The close collaboration provided new points of view and taught us the importance, relevance and meaning of being a luxury brand in terms of quality, efficiency and style.”
The team also took a completely new approach to the process of designing the yacht. “We started from a blank page and didn’t think about it being on the water or the ground, focusing only on the style and look,” says Costantino. “Then, we moved it into the water and realised it was perfect; not a car, not a conventional speedboat – something new. It was amazing. We made very few changes from the first models to the final one.”
So, what does the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 represent for the Italian Sea Group? “A gem – it is a hymn to the great Italian savoir faire,” says Costantino. As Ferruccio Lamborghini himself said: “Lamborghini is refinement, luxury and perfection.” Now it is also a magnificent motor yacht.
