It’s Memorial Day, the unofficial start to the summer across the US. For lots of people (especially where we live) this means the official start of the boating season too. Given this, I thought what better way to kick off the summer season then taking a look at Porsche and their contribution to the boating world.
It never ceases to amaze me all the different products (industrial and consumer) that Porsche is a part of (through either design or as manufacturer.) Looking back, I’ve written about the History of the Porsche Design Group and the different companies and brands that have added to the provenance of this brand over the years. Today’s post is no different.
Take a look at the following video:
Porsche Design Studio has joined with Fearless Yachts
The Fearless 28 was designed for a discerning captain…
With its chiseled exterior, sumptuous curves and seating for five, the high performance 28 is navigating new waters in intelligent design, uncompromising agility and outright velocity. A seamless deep- V hull, sleek stainless steel intake vents, and ample horsepower cut an impressive wake. With your eye on the Livorsi analog instrumentation and hand on the Latham throttles, the 28 responds to your whims in open waters…while luxuries such as hand-fitted non-slip teak inlays and classically tailored 8.5’ beam indulge your sense of style.
The Fearless 28 can produce up to a maximum of 600 HP, reach speeds of up to 90 MPH and create a rooster tail that would make Foghorn Leghorn jealous.
More Porsche Designed Boats and Yachts on the Way
According to the Fearless website there are an additional four models coming over the next few years. A 44’ twin step racer, a 68’ cruiser, and by 2010 both a 125’ and 150’ yacht.
Right now, production on the Fearless 28 is quite limited. According to Porsche Design-Bevery Hills Manager Jeff Rayborn, there are currently only three (3) available. It is safe to assume that more will be available in the coming months. If you want to see the Porsche Designed Fearless 28 first hand then stop by the Porsche Design store on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills on June 15th where it will be on display for a few lucky dads.
