Headquartered in the Netherlands, Quintessence Yachts is a company with a passion for using research and innovation to explore new ideas within the yachting arena. Our core mission is to provide highly exclusive maritime experiences in terms of style, performance and design.

At Quintessence Yachts we are committed to blowing a fresh wind through the boating world by offering genuinely new products. This is achieved by starting with strong concepts from the outset, blending stunning design, advanced technologies and the most exquisite craftsmanship.

Our partnership with Aston Martin shows how Quintessence Yachts is translating this vision into reality. As a symbiosis between the maritime and car worlds, the AM37 is a revolution in its own right – a powerboat that will exceed even the state-of-the-art quality Aston Martin clients expect.

We are convinced that you will be truly inspired.


Quintessence Yachts leverages on the broad know-how of its people to add value to the yachting lifestyle. Our rich concepts are based on a love of design and detail as we integrate super-car features into the powerboat experience.

The name of our company embodies what we stand for and is a byword for our entire philosophy. At Quintessence we offer a pure and unadulterated spirit of quality to the high-end yachting world. This thrilling blend of uniqueness and innovation is the energy that gave birth to Quintessence Yachts and the driving force behind all our activities today. It is the heart and soul of what we do and who we are.

The key to a Quintessence Yachts powerboat is the way in which a high-tech composite structure is allied to sports car-like handling, performance and comfort. The manufacturing process expresses the same high quality standards of the automotive luxury brands and the same superb attention to detail. This has been combined with a flawless design that succeeds in being both new and timeless in equal measure.

Production of the Aston Martin powerboats is carried out in a dedicated Quintessence Yachts facility near Southampton (UK). This ensures the same British soul that gives birth to some of the best sports cars in the world and involves a highly skilled staff with a long and proven track record in luxury yacht building.


Since its inception, Quintessence Yachts has established an effective collaborative relationship with various international organisations in the maritime sector.


Gstaad Yacht Club

The prestigious Gstaad Yacht Club was founded in 1998 by a group of sailing enthusiasts with strong links to Gstaad, and today has over 400 members from over 20 countries.

Its partnership with Quintessence Yachts and our ‘Earth meets Water’ approach makes perfect sense when you read these words from Gstaad Yacht Club patron H.M. King Constantine: “Our vision is to create a unique global yacht club away from the waters, instead of another yacht club by the water.”

Royal Southern Yacht Club

Quintessence Yachts is proud to be affiliated with the prestigious Royal Southern Yacht Club, which was established in 1837. The Club is located near the Quintessence Yachts construction yard in Southampton, where the AM37 is built.
Originally called the “Royal Southampton Yacht Club”, HM Queen Victoria became its patron in 1838, a role held today by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. The original Club House, which still stands opposite Southampton’s Royal Pier, was built in 1846.
Quintessence Yachts and the Royal Southern Yacht Club share the same passion for sport and performance, as well as for excellence in quality and services.
