Seafire – the new military style luxury sports yacht

Yachting Boating World: Renders of the new 25 metre Seafire sports yacht have just been released by the UK-based Gilmour Design. It will have a top speed of 60 knots.

 

Many of us fantasise about the James Bond lifestyle – the adventures, the women and, of course, the stunning array of boats that 007 gets to experience.

Now, the design for a new luxury sports yacht has just been released that could make this fantasy a reality!

The new Seafire is inspired by the naval torpedo boat and the ever-growing demand for 1930 retro style design.

Fitted with the latest technology and safety features, the high speed Seafire is intended to bring fun and excitement back into the world of yachting. It will have a top speed of 60 knots.

According to Gilmour Design, the target audience for the avant garde high powered motor yacht are those who demand other retro style products “like expensive watches, classic cars and aircraft”.

In keeping with its military styling, the Seafire will be individually numbered on the bow.

Each owner will be able to tailor their vessel inside and out to their specific requirements and tastes.

Below deck, the living quarters can accommodate up to six guests and two crew members.

Design manager at the Newcastle-upon-Tyne based company, Ross Sedgley, said: “The ‘Seafire’ presents the opportunity for modern man to reclaim a lifestyle that has long pass of Hollywood glamour and stars such as Ernest Hemingway, Clark Gable and Gary Grant.”

“The indulged passions for fast cars and planes is beginning to re-emerge after years of repression and those who pursue a James Bond image and lifestyle will be the envy of bystanders in any marina,” continued Sedgley.

Gilmour Design has completed the design and specification for the new Seafire, and it is currently tendering for the production of the first vessel.

The build period is expected to take 24 months. This commission will be the first of a production series.
