Aston Martin Uses Composite Materials for Its First AM37 Luxury Boat

August 28 2017

With the delivery of its first AM37 luxury boat, Aston Martin has officially entered the boating industry. The AM37, which was first unveiled last year at the Monaco Yacht Show, was made in conjunction with Quintessence Yachts and features literally a boatload of carbon fiber.

Quintessence says it took “a holistic approach” to the boat’s weight distribution and balance, saying they used “high-tech composite materials used in the construction of the stepped hull to provide the type of comfort Aston Martin car owners expect.”

The hull’s structural parts are made with a composite of epoxy resin and carbon fiber. The production process for the AM37 deployed “state-of-the-art” vacuum infusion technology and post curing. As Quintessence explains, vacuum infusion allows full integration of the structure and interior modules, which are made out of fiberglass sections.

The deck consists of three carbon fiber panels which can be operated electronically using the AM37 key, which fold under the aft deck to uncover the cockpit. The deck can also be tilted up to give access to the engine room, storage compartments and the carbon fiber bimini top.
