Porsche's $300,000 yacht

Ready to take on the 'aquabahn'

Fearless Yachts

If this isn't a match made in heaven, we don't know what is: Porsche and yachting. Offering the opportunity of a "blank canvas," Florida-based Fearless Yachts approached Porsche Design Studios to seize what it calls the "aquabahn" with a state-of-the-art seacraft, a 28-foot cruiser built for high speed (surprise) featuring a 525-horsepower Viper engine.

Typical for what you'd expect from Porsche, the luxury racer has "the sleek curves and lean silhouette of a European coupe" with a seamless fiberglass hull that "does away with unsightly rivets that might slow it down," according to Yanko Design. If you're interested in picking up one of these cruisers, it will be making its debut next week at the Miami Boat Show--with prices starting at $300,000. (Thanks for the tip, Takashi.)
