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.

2021 Ocean Craft 9.8M AMP

While the amphibious nature of this craft grabs most of the attention, it can also blast through raging seas at high speeds in relative comfort.

Overview

When the 32-foot Ocean Craft 9.8M AMP, powered by twin 300 hp Mercury Pro XS outboards, rolled up the boat ramp and into the parking lot on its own wheels, every nearby head swiveled to look.

The Ocean Craft has three hydraulic legs that raise and lower, powered by a 40 hp Briggs and Stratton gasoline engine parked under a motor box in the transom. Each rear leg sports a custom 26-by-12-by-12-inch Turf Tire wheel, and the leg that tucks up against the bow has dual wheels. The ability to drive at jogging speed (a governor keeps top-end down to around 6 mph) across asphalt, sand or just about any reasonably firm surface in all-wheel-drive sets this boat apart from the mainstream. While the amphibious nature of this craft grabs most of the attention, it can also blast through raging seas at high speeds in relative comfort.

Engine

When we tested the Ocean Craft, gusts to 29 mph had roiled up Chesapeake Bay, creating a back-breaking 2- to 4-foot chop. In our quest to find calmer waters for high-speed runs, we ran north, then west, then south, and eventually back east again. Thanks to an aggressive hull with razor-sharp concave reversed chines surrounded by the shock-absorbing Hypalon collar, there was never a moment when my aching old back cried out in pain aboard this center-console layout, regardless of the direction we cruised—that includes when cranked up to full tilt.

Design

The boat’s amphibious nature isn’t its only unusual trait. Construction is also atypical. Ocean Craft builds this model just as it builds its professional line intended for law enforcement, firefighters and military applications. Upgrades from the norm include military-grade Hypalon 1670 Dtex tubes, stainless-steel pipework and shock-mitigating seats. These touches might not be as obvious as the legs and wheels, but it’s no matter. We’re still 100 percent sure that each and every head will turn when you cruise that Ocean Craft out of the water and drive onto dry land.

How We Tested

  • Engines: Twin Mercury Pro XS 300
  • Drive/prop: Outboard/14″ x 21″ Mirage Plus 3-blade stainless-steel
  • Gear ratio: 1.75:1 Fuel Load: 120 gal. Crew Weight: 320 lb. (approx.)

High Points

  • Boat ramp? Who needs a boat ramp? Trailer? Who needs a trailer?
  • Exceedingly comfortable in a nasty chop, even while posting impressive performance numbers.
  • Bow wheels create a permanent fender of sorts.

Low Points

  • If you trim the boat improperly and push the bow too low, the forward wheels can grab water and throw spray.
  • Additional weight of the amphibious system (over 800 pounds) means otherwise equal nonamphibious versions could go faster or burn less fuel.

Toughest Competitor

The slightly smaller 30-foot Sea Legs 9.0M is another amphibious RIB with deployable wheels. It offers a single wheel at the bow rather than dual, rides on an aluminum hull as opposed to fiberglass, and carries a 400 hp maximum rating.
