Comitti Isola 33 first look: Bringing Italian style to the centre console market

Comitti’s Breva 35, which graced the cover of the February edition of MBY, might be the boat you buy with your heart, but this Isola 33 (“island” in Italian) is the one you buy with your head.

The Comitti Isola 33 is a tempting blend of style and practicality

Its centre console, walkaround design make it suitable for a multitude of purposes from quick sprints out to a local anchorage or fishing trips to playing tender to a superyacht.

This may demonstrate the more practical side of the Comitti range but it still has the eye for style that you would expect from a low-volume Italian builder.

The way the topsides pinch in towards the stern and gently spread out to flare the bow is just gorgeous and its profile is beautifully clean despite the presence of a T-top for some shade.

The Comitti Isola 33 is no slouch either, with a displacement of 3.5 tonnes and a pair of Mercury’s 300hp V8 outboards it will crack 50 knots and comfortably cruise in the mid to late 30s.

There are other engine options, too, with smaller outboard pairings – including Cox diesel ones – and inboard diesels on sterndrives.

The deck layout is smart and versatile thanks to the two dinette positions. If the aft one has been converted to sunpad mode the forward one can remain as a dinette and vice versa.

The wetbar, equipped with cooking facilities, fridge, sink and ice-maker is well positioned to serve the aft end of the deck and equally important for a comfortable day on the water is the heads compartment in the console.

The option of a pair of berths below decks makes weekends away possible for those who intend to cruise further afield.

Granted, plenty of competition awaits in this sector but there are few rivals that can boast the Comitti Isola 33’s potent mix of style and exclusivity.

Lamborghini boat: Tecnomar delivers first official ‘fighting bull’ branded yacht

Supercar builder Lamborghini has joined forces with The Italian Sea Group to develop its first ever luxury superboat, the Lamborghini 63.

Called the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63, it is the first boat to wear the famous ’fighting bull’ logo. Hull No 1 was launched at the group’s Tecnomar yard in Marina di Carrara last month and delivered to its owner earlier this week.

The styling takes its inspiration from the 220mph Lamborghini Siàn FKP 37, the limited edition hybrid supercar that combines a petrol V12 engine with an F1 super-capacitor to boost its power and range.

The car references are evident in the Lamborghini 63’s sweeping roof line, the glazing in the hull and the sweet nose-covers that conceal the anchor system.

The automotive theme continues inside the Lamborghini 63, with helm seats that look like they could have been plucked straight from a supercar and a start/stop button integrated into the bridge console. Even the 63ft length is a tribute to the supercar builder’s foundation in 1963.

Despite Lamborghini’s previous history of supplying marinised versions of its legendary 6.0-litre V12 engines to offshore powerboat racing teams during the 1980s and 1990s, the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63’s power comes from two of MAN’s latest twin 2,000hp V12 diesels.

Linked to surface-drives to reduce drag at planing speeds, they should deliver a top whack of around 60 knots (approx 69mph) and an appropriately ostentatious rooster-tail to match those killer looks. This makes the Lamborghini boat the fastest vessel in the Tecnomar fleet, despite being the slowest Lamborghini ever built.

Dial that speed back to 40 knots, however and the Lamborghini boat should be good for a cruising range of 210nm, Technomar estimates.

Extensive use of carbon fibre ensures the Lamborghini 63 will displace just 24 tonnes unloaded, relatively light for a boat of this size, but more than 16 times the kerb weight of the latest Lamborghini supercar.

Prices for the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 start at around £2.7m – roughly £100,000 more than a fully-specced Sian supercar.

UFC champion Connor McGregor is widely reported to be the owner of the first Lamborghini boat, but the Italian yard is remaining typically tight-lipped about this particular detail.

Although this boat is a first for Lamborghini, it is by no means the only car company to have tried its hand at launching a superboat.

Aston Martin, AMG Mercedes, Porsche and Lexus have all put their names to supercar inspired boats in recent years while Bugatti has teamed up with superyacht builder Palmer Johnson to develop a 66ft superboat called the Bugatti Niniette.

The Italian Sea Group also builds the Tecnomar Evo 55 sportscruiser and the semi-custom all-aluminium Tecnomar Evo 120 RPH, as well as custom-built full-displacement steel/aluminium superyachts under the Admiral brand.
