Quintessence Yachts and Aston Martin have revealed more details of the first Aston Martin powerboat, which will be completed in September.

Both models will be built out of an epoxy resin composite hull, with structural elements made of carbon fiber. The deck reportedly consists of three carbon panels which can be operated by the electronic command of the AM37 key, folding under the aft deck to uncover the cockpit.

The AM37 will be available in two models, reaching top speeds of around 44 and 52 knots.
