Porsche lifts the lid on mega yacht

Porsche has revealed a hybrid superyacht.

The Dynamiq GTT 115 will cost more than £11.8 million and is 35 metres in length.

However, it's no ordinary yacht. Designed as a hybrid, it has a range of 3,400 nautical miles and can achieve a speed of 21 knots thanks to two V12 diesel engines producing 1,627bhp.

Porsche's design house Studio F.A has created the interior and it's a minimalist affair with lots of light and airy colours including hardwood floors and chocolate brown furniture along with light grey sofas and chairs.

Porsche teamed up with Monaco-based boat designer Dynamiq to create the yacht. Sofa experts Minotti also collaborated by supplying many of the materials including carbon-fibre detailing and Sahara Noir marble.

The sharp metallic grey exterior colour makes the yacht look stealth-like, something especially outlined by the sharp-styled bow and tinted glass.

The boat can carry six passengers and six crew. Meanwhile the design reflects the shapes and designs of Porsche cars throughout history. The material used on the throw cushions, for example, is lifted from the seats of a 911R.

Speaking to online boat magazine Boat, Roland Heiler, CEO of Studio F.A. Porsche said: "Taking the spirit of high-performance sportscar styling to the high seas, 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."

Seven yachts have been made so far, with its public debut being made at the Monaco Yacht Show later this month.
