15 Sick Speedboats Designed By Luxury Sports Car Brands (And How Much They're Worth)

What do you do when you’ve created some of the fastest, most insane supercars on the road, each costing millions of dollars? Well, you might as well branch out to the water and conquer that, too. That’s what these luxury carmakers have done, by collaborating with well-known speed- and sport-boat companies.

These boats reflect the carmakers very well: they’re opulent, over-the-top luxurious, and in many cases, very fast. Some of them even use the same types of engines that the company’s cars use. Most of them cost at least seven figures.

Some of the biggest names in the auto industry have made million-dollar-plus speedboats for their rich clientele, and it makes sense – speedboating is just one more rich-person hobby that they might as well capitalize on.

Here are 15 sick speedboats that were made by luxury sports carmakers, and how much they're worth.

Bugatti is the maker of the fastest production car in the world and Palmer Johnson is one of the largest motor yacht builders in the world. Together, they teamed up to make the slick Niniette 66, which are open carbon-fiber “yachts,” but really they’re speedboats costing $2 million, ranging from 42- to 88-feet in size, with 16.2-liter MAN V8 engines pumping out 1,000 to 1,200 hp for 44 knots (just over 55 mph) of top speed.

The Arrow 460 GranTurismo is a speedboat developed by Daimler and Silver Arrows Marine. The 14-meter sports boat, dubbed the “Silver Arrow of the Seas,” in true Mercedes fashion, costs $1.7 million, and is built with a crossover, open design. It’s propelled by two Yanman 6LY3-ETP diesel engines that each produce 480 hp, giving it a top speed of 40 knots.

Aston Martin’s AM37 was built in collaboration with Quintessence Yachts, to build this beautiful wooden-decked powerboat that fuses maritime and automotive design cues. The interior, down to the steering wheel, is very luxury-car-like.

The 37-foot model (11 meters) has a top speed of 45 knots with its choice of either two 370-hp Mercury diesel engines, or two 430-hp Mercury petrol engines. The AM37S can hit 50 knots thanks to its twin 520-hp Mercury petrol engines.

Back in 1990, Ferrari and Riva teamed up to make a speedboat called the 32. Riva is a sponsor for the Ferrari Formula 1 team, so it’s no surprise that this boat is special. Only 30 of them were built, with a Formula 1-style hull, painted in Ferrari Rosso Corsa red with a black carbon-fiber spoiler on top. Two 390-hp V8 Vulcano 400 engines give it a top speed of 50 knots.

11. Jaguar Vector V20E (Not For Sale)

This small one-off battery-powered speedboat, the Jaguar Vector V20E, recently broke a 2008 record for an electric speedboat, which was 76.8 mph. In 2018, the Vector smashed the record in England by hitting 88.6 mph on a 1km course on Coniston Water. The small boat was developed by Jaguar Vector and Williams Advanced Engineering, who supplied the components for the electric drivetrain. Unfortunately, this mighty speedboat is not for sale.

10. Lamborghini Raging Bull ($1.3 Million)

This brightly colored speedboat from Lamborghini is truly a thing of beauty. “The Raging Bull” is the $1.3-million Lamboat of Gino Gargiulo, a rich Floridian. The 48-foot-long boat boasts a part of twin-turbo Mercury Racing 1350 engines, engineered by Marine Technology Inc., that gives it an insane 2,700 hp, and it practically flies over the water with a top speed of 186 mph!

Porsche doesn’t want to be left out of the opulent speedboat segment. The 28 Fearless motor yacht might be mistaken for a sports car on water, as it was designed to look like the Porsche Carrera GT, by Porsche Design Studio. With its clean lines and carbon-fiber hull, and a 625-hp V10 engine designed by the makers of the Dodge Viper, it reaches a top speed of 90 mph.

8. Lexus LY650 ($3.74 Million)

Late last year, Lexus released its first-ever fully-loaded luxury yacht, the LY650, with a starting price of $3.74 million. With all of its possible add-ons, the price is bumped to $4.85 million!

It’s a 65-foot boat, of which four have already been sold, and it was built in collaboration with Italian yacht designer Nuvolari Lenard. It has three staterooms and can sleep up to six people, and its carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic and glass-fiber-reinforced plastic keep it lightweight and fast, with 31.4 knots being its top speed.

Back in 2010, Italian RIB manufacturer Sacs teamed up with carmaker Lancia, an engine-maker in the Fiat Group, and Martini (a partner of Lancia in racing), to create a boat for the Venice Film Festival. The “Lancia di Lancia” was made jointly between the four companies, and was 13 meters long and powered by two N67-560 engines by Fiat Powertrain Technologies, giving it a powerful top speed of 55 knots.

The BMW 507 speedboat is a one-off boat based on the extremely rare BMW 507 roadster, of which only 250 were made back in the ‘50s. This boat was first made in the ‘50s as an experiment to see how the aluminum alloy OHV V8 of the 507 car would perform as the powertrain of a boat. It was a massive success, though this boat sat idle in a barn for decades. It was finally tracked down and reintroduced to the water in 2014.

5. 1960 Riva Tritone Special Cadillac ($790,000)

This beautiful speedboat was built in 1960 by Carlo Riva, in his own shipyard, for Cadillac. The luxury boat has no clones, and was commissioned by the renowned sailor and industrialist Achille Roncoroni.

The 8.3-meter speedboat houses a 325-hp Cadillac Crusader Marine V8 engine, which was one of the most powerful of its age. The boat set records for speed, hitting 96 km/h (59 mph) in the ‘60s. It’s been auctioned by RM Sotheby’s where it brought in between $718,000 and $979,000.

Mercedes’ performance arm, AMG, partnered with Cigarette Racing to build this ridiculous speedboat called the Marauder GTS. Spinning two 1550 Mercury V8s out the back, it has a combined 3,100 hp, which gives it a top speed of 135 mph (117.3 knots). It’s a sleek, 50-foot sea vessel made purely for racing and gliding over the water, and it costs $1.8 million.

3. Lamborghini Riva Aquarama ($750,000)

Lamborghini didn’t just start with the insanely fast “Raging Bull.” Feruccio Lamborghini customized his own Riva Aquarama speedboat, and gave it to Carlo Riva to put in two Lamborghini 350 GT 4.0 V12s wedged to the back of it, giving it 700 hp and a top speed of 48 knots, or 55 mph. It’s a small boat that’s only 29-feet long, but it sure looks nice.

2. Malibu Corvette Z06 Sport-V ($66,000)

A “corvette” was a type of warship long before it was Chevy’s most popular sports car, so the fact that a speedboat would be made in its name is no surprise. In the late ‘90s, Malibu introduced a Corvette-branded ski boat with a Chevy V8 under the hood, and Vette taillights in the back. The collaboration reached its peak in 2008, when the Z06 Sport-V was released alongside the C6 Z06 Corvette, with a 505-hp LS7 engine.

1. Cigarette Racing Tirranna 59’ AMG Edition ($3 Million)

Cigarette Racing teamed up with AMG quite a few times since 2007 to make 12 different boats. One of those is the $3-million Tirranna 59 AMG Edition, which is powered by six supercharged Mercury Racing V8 engines with 450 hp each, giving it 2,700 hp total, and a top speed of 80 mph. The matching Mercedes to the car is the G63 AMG, which beats the Tirranna with a 149 mph top speed, and also doesn’t cost $3 million!
