Rolls Royce and Claydon Reeves collaborate on new superyacht design

Legendary British automaker Rolls Royce, and British designer Claydon Reeves unveiled a new superyacht concept last week, the ‘Aeroboat S6’, during SuperYacht Gallery’s Saatchi Gallery seminar events.

The announcement comes shortly after Rolls Royce unveiled the most expensive car they have ever created, the £10million custom design dubbed ‘Sweptail’.

The latest superyacht design to come from the partnership is an evolution of their previous collaboration, the Aeroboat V12. Following the same aim of performance-focused design, the new Aeroboat S6 uses the iconic Rolls Royce V12 Merlin engine, adapted for marine use.

Unlike the Aerobat V12, Aerobat S6 received the expertise of British naval architecture firm BMT Nigel Gee. The firm designed a unique extending swim platform that can move to meet the passerelle, or sink below the water for easy access to the sea. This adaptation also allows alfresco dining in the cockpit amidships.

Should the owner wish to stay overnight, the sun-soaked day cabin cleverly transforms into a master suite, and can make use of the shower room, day head and galley on board.

A second cabin is accessible via the main passage, as well as a tender garage able to hold two Jet Skis or a 3.8m tender.

luxury car manufacturers are increasingly making waves in the industry, with Lexus, Porsche and Mercedes Benz also revealing their own yacht designs in the last year.
