British design studio Claydon Reeves has revealed its latest concept yacht – a 19.8 meter Rolls-Royce-powered luxury vessel named Aeroboat S6. The S6 is a uniquely designed day cruiser made of carbon and aluminum that is an evolution of the performance-focused Aeroboat SV12, the design studio’s 2013 tie-up with Rolls. It rides on a hull developed by British studio BMT Nigel Gee and is powered by twin MTU V10 2000 M96 engines and a waterjet propulsion system to give it sporty performance. The yacht’s design combines luxury outdoor living and easy access to the water’s edge with the thrill of high-performance cruising.
The teardrop shaped open cockpit is one of the Aeroboat S6’s main characteristics. The central mid-ship seating area of the cockpit conceals a dining table and leads all the way to the aft swim platform. It endless views of the ocean weather you’re driving the vessel or relaxing on deck. The yacht’s two decks are rated for entertaining 12 passengers, but the Aeroboat only sleeps four people. The cabin below functions as an entertainment area with a Pullman for crew members or guests. For easy access to the water, the luxury boat features an extendable swim platform which can be lowered to act as a ladder into the sea. The top speed of the Aeroboat S6 with a light load is estimated at 48 knots and its range at 40 knots and full 1,518-gallon fuel capacity is 400 nautical miles.
