Lamborghini is fortunate to have passionate fans of its brand, which goes beyond supercars. The name has been attached to wine, watches, furniture, shoes, etc. So why not something bigger, like a motor yacht? Well, now that’s part of the portfolio too. Lamborghini partnered with the Italian Sea Group, a well-known yacht builder, to produce the Lamborghini 63.

The first 63 were delivered last July. Brett David, CEO of Prestige Imports and a major Miami-based Lamborghini dealer, has already sold four of the limited-edition yachts to South American customers. The price is 3.5 million euros ($3.49 million).

Lamborghini historians will recognize the significance of the name “63”. This was the year tractor manufacturer Ferruccio Lamborghini founded his automotive company in Sant’Agata Bolognese and produced the V12-powered 350 GT launch model. Ferrari owner Lamborghini has reportedly been snubbed by notorious mercurial Enzo Ferrari after calling him out to report difficulties with his car.

The 63 can be designed with sleeping for four or a version with a living room.

So the 24-tonne yacht, developed under Italian Sea Group’s Tecnomar brand, will be built in an Edition of 63, David says, and powered by two 2,000-hp MAN V12 engines. The 63 is a 63ft long luxury yacht and is capable of, yes, 63 knots. An inspiration for the sleek design was the 220mph capable Lamborghini Sián FKP 37, a hybrid supersport car.

There is an interesting story here. Lamborghini itself ordered a wooden Riva Aquarama speedboat in 1968, and it was initially powered by two of its company’s four-litre Lamborghini V12s of the Espada model. It was the fastest Aquarama built, capable of 48 knots (55 mph) and the founder kept it until 1989 (although at one point he replaced Lamborghinis V12s with V8 power derived from General Motors). “There was a real ‘wow’ factor on this boat,” David said.

The yacht was inspired by a car, the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 hybrid.

David says maybe five or six 63s will be allocated to the US market, although he hopes for 15. Other important markets for the boats include Italy itself, Japan, Asia-Pacific/Australia and the Mediterranean region. A customer ordered his 63 with a Ducati motorcycle and a Sián in matching dark green with gold accents. Yachts will be highly individualized. David says layouts designed with input from Lamborghini’s Centro Stile include twin bedrooms for four and five people, or a version with a living room.

All furniture and cabinets are designed to accommodate the high performance of the 63 on the water. Carbon fiber, also widely used in Lamborghini cars, helps reduce weight and improve performance.

“We are proud to see the essence of Lamborghini’s DNA which today sets out to sail the sea with the same attitude as our super sports cars which race on asphalt,” said Stefano Rutigliano, director of Automobili Lamborghini’s strategy. “This yacht is proof that shared values ​​and the perfect synergy of the two teams are the key to carrying out excellent projects.”

And according to Giovanni Costantino, CEO of The Italian Sea Group, “Selected owners around the world will own not only the fastest Tecnomar motor yacht in the fleet, but also a Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 masterpiece.”
