Clayton Reeves, a British design studio, recently teamed up with luxury automaker Rolls-Royce for the high-performance Aeroboat S6 Yacht. This yacht’s design is based on naval architecture. Presented in London at the beginning of June, the 19.8-metre yacht attracted plenty of second looks thanks to its distinctive design and speed. The Aeroboat S6 was intended to be a day cruiser, but it has speedboat capabilities thanks to a pair of Rolls-Royce M96 engines that help propel it to a top speed of 48 knots.
One of the most prominent features of the Aeroboat S6 is the Superstructure Tail. This section of the yacht sits above the engines. It was designed to lift to reveal the engine bay below. It houses a large height-adjustable passerelle. Pop-up rails, located on both sides, provide stability to passengers when disembarking and boarding the yacht. These rails also called Aerostairs act as an extendable swim platform.
The Aeroboat can entertain up to 12 passengers in style. It offers plenty of outdoor living space and easy access to the water. A teardrop shaped cockpit offers excellent views of the sea. A sofa style helm station features adjustable height seating. There is a central seating area that provides space for al fresco dining. Hidden TV screens and a hidden table can be automatically stored when not in use.
A central information panel called the Header Rail Readout is unobtrusively located in the cockpit. It is mounted to the upper frame of the windshield and provides the course, speed and estimated time of arrival.
The Aeroboat S6 sleeps four comfortably. The interior features an owner’s Lounge with large, expansive windows, a full-size head and shower and generous galley.
