Aston Martin has officially entered the boating business.

The luxury car maker debuted its first boat in September 2016 – and it has now entered the hands of its first owner.

The boat, called the AM37, was made in conjunction with Quintessence Yachts and starts at $1.64 million. But the one hitting the seas was heavily customized, making it cost a lot more than the initial price tag.

Scroll down for a closer look at the boat:


Aston Martin worked on the AM37 for two years starting in 2014.

The owner customized the yacht with Charcoal Lacquer wood to match their new Vantage AMR. The power boat was also outfitted with a convertible sofa, champagne cooler, and Lacewood table.

Both boat trims come with a carbon fiber dashboard that was designed to mimic Aston Martin sports cars. The dashboard features a control monitor, navigation system, and entertainment display.

Owners can cover the entire cockpit by pressing a button to activate a sliding deck. There’s even a swim platform that can extend from the back of the boat so you can dip into the water with ease.

It comes with a bathroom, refrigerator, microwave oven, and coffee machine. It even comes with air conditioning if that sea air isn’t cool enough for you.

Aston Martin is treating the boat as an exclusive purchase, so it will take some leg work to get your hands on one.
