Two versions of the powerboat are available. The fastest is the AM37S, able to reach 50 knots thanks to its twin 520hp Mercury petrol engines. The AM37 has a top speed of 45 knots and is available with two 370hp Mercury diesel or two 430hp Mercury petrol engines.
The lightweight, low-resistance AM37 hull will perform to its best powered by engines from Mercury Marine during the close cooperation.
Mercury Marine, a large company with locations and dealers around the world, is the supplier for the powerboat. Founded in 1939 as Kiekhaefer Mercury, a division of the Brunswick Corporation, Mercury Marine is based in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Today it offers engine and propulsion solutions for demanding environments.
James Hall, Sales Director of Quintessence Yachts, said: “It is exciting for us to show the stunning AM37 during this international exhibition. People will be captivated by her magnificent features as we bring to the United States a completely new product, a new philosophy and a new dream for lovers of the Aston Martin brand."
