Milan-based yacht design studio Officina Armare drew heavily from supercars with the striking new A88 Gransport concept.
The company’s website says that the 88-foot seafarer is intended to channel the look of today’s exotic roadgoing rides, with a coupe-like aerodynamic hardtop, four carbon fiber overwater exhausts, carbon fiber lateral wings, a muscular bow and multiple air intakes.
Robb Report called it the “Lamborghini Huracan Evo of the sea,” which isn’t much of a stretch when you consider Officina Armare’s previous Raging Bull-inspired boat, the A43 speedboat.
But with twin 2,600-horsepower 16-valve diesel engines, the A88 has nearly five times the power of the A43, along with a 40-mph cruising speed, a blistering 46-mph top speed, and a 400-mile range.
The foredeck features two large sun pads and a canvas bimini cover, but guests can also head rearward under the roof’s large tinted glass panels to grab some shade. Meanwhile, the aft deck boasts a leather sofa and an alfresco dining area.
Below deck are two guest cabins with twin beds and a master suite with luxury en-suite facilities. According to Officina Armare, different layouts allow for 2-3 guest cabins and a twin crew cabin. For day trips, the A94 can accommodate up to eight up top.
Other highlights include an indoor dining area, a full bar-equipped gallery, a garage occupied by a pair of Seabob waaer sleds and a Williams Sportjet 435 tender, and underwater lights to add ambiance at dusk.
