The Aeroboat is Claydon Reeves’ answer to anyone seeking a boat combining speed and contemporary elegance; a heady combination of old-school romance and modern-day technology.

Inspired by the British World War II fighter plane, the Aeroboat preserves the purity of this beloved aircraft. Core to our concept is the renowned original Rolls Royce Merlin engine that powers the Aeroboat. The supercharged Merlin V12 engine with its bespoke gearbox and final drive can be specified in various states of tune from 1500hp up to 2500hp giving rise to speeds in excess of an astonishing 75 knots.

The fluid lines of the original plane combined with modern automotive features inspired the design. This can be visualized in the sensual form language of the stern echoing the wing’s trailing edge, the sweeping tail, and the authentic air intake scoop. Yet this is also a distinctly contemporary yacht design carbon fibre, Keviar and lightweight wood veneers.

Tho cockpit can be configured to an individual’s demands, comfortably accommodating four to six passengers. The forward seats are a unique shock-mounted design inspired by the landing gear. The helmsman has the use of a combination os analogue gauges for basic functions and touch-screen navigational systems. Dominating the helmsman’s controls is the joystick-inspired throttle. This is indisputably not your average tender but of course it could be carried on a super yacht.
