Bugatti has revealed a yacht inspired by its Chiron hypercar, crafted together with boatbuilder Palmer Johnson: the Niniette 66.
The name is derived from a speedboat of the same name produced by Bugatti in 1930, with Niniette being the nickname of founder Ettore Bugatti’s youngest daughter.
Measuring 20m long, the Niniette 66 features a number of design elements clearly inspired by the hypercar, including the (fittingly) wave-like designs on the sides, and the two-tone colour scheme.
Another feature reminiscent of the Chiron is the option of having sections of the carbon-fibre hull exposed to show the weave.
Inside, the yacht features lashings of leather, marble, and carbon-fibre, while the decking is available in various types of wood. There’s also plenty of comfort features like an on-board spa, fireplace, champagne bar and a double bed.
Powering the Niniette 66 is a 16.2-litre V8 engine sourced from truck company MAN – which, like Bugatti, is owned by Volkswagen – generating 1000 horsepower, or 746kW. Top speed is rated at 44 knots or just over 50mph (80km/h).
Buyers can also opt for a more powerful 1200hp (895kW) version of the same engine, which can propel the Bugatti yacht to 48 knots, or around 55mph (89km/h).
Like the Chiron, the Niniette 66 claims the world title for the world’s fastest vehicle of its type.
The ultra-fast and ultra-exclusive yacht is limited to just 66 units, hence the name. Price will be given only on request, and doubtless not without some amount of interrogation.
