Porsche designs £10m hybrid electric superyacht for sports car-inspired sailing

Just £10m you say? We'll take 50Dynamiq

You can now have Porsche's distinct design language in yacht form, thanks to a collaboration between the sports car manufacturer and Monaco-based superyacht builder Dynamiq – and all it'll cost you is a cool €11.9m (£10.2m).

The 115-foot Grand Turismo Transatlantic (GTT) 115 is a hybrid electric yacht designed for big spenders that have grown tired of their cruise ship-like mega yachts and are looking for something a little quainter. The boat can accommodate six passengers and six crew members, presumably with enough room left over to swing several cats.

The GTT 115 features an all-aluminium hull designed by Dutch outfit Vripack, making it lightweight enough to zip through the surf at speeds of up to 21 knots (24mph). Two diesel engines offer a combined 3,250 horsepower and provide a range of 3,400 nautical miles – plenty to nip back and forth across the Mediterranean a few times, and just enough to take it from the tip of Cornwall to the US east coast.

When cruising the crystalline waters of the Med, sailors can switch to the yacht's zero-emission two electric 20kW engines and bob along at a far more leisurely six knots. The boat's shallow draft of 4.75ft makes it ideal for listing in shallow waters while you and your equally rich friends sip prosecco on deck and soak up the Sicilian sun, or alternatively frolic around on jetskis (which Dynamiq will throw in for additional cost).

The GGT 115's interior sports cavernous seven-foot high ceilings and can be customised to your taste. Not only can buyers chose between brown or beige leather trim, but they have the option of adding underwater lighting, cameras, drones, skylights, wine coolers, heated flooring, gym equipment, diving gear, a floating sundeck, a speedboat and even an underwater mobility device to the package, amongst other luxurious goodies.

Dyanmiq also plans 85ft and 100ft models of the GTT. Company CEO Sergei Dobroserdov said its yachts were perfectly suited to clients who were sick of the "hassle and huge cost of owning large vessels", adding that downsizing would let them actually "enjoy the fun side of yacht ownership".

The poor things.
