Mauro Lecci Lamborghini motoryacht – Click above for high-res image gallery

When we first brought you Italian designer Mauro Lecchi's vision of a Lamborghini power yacht, we were suitably intrigued, but didn't imagine it would actually ever hit the water. Color us surprised, because apparently it is.

The design, "heavily contaminated by stretched lines", according to the press release, takes its cues from Lamborghinis old and new and applies them to the 50-foot form of an express motor yacht. Available propulsion options range from an available pair of 550-horsepower V12s from Motori Marini Lamborghini, and ultimately top out at twin 950-horsepower Seatek turbodiesels. The first example of the Lamborghini-themed yacht is apparently now being built, incorporating lightweight carbon-Kevlar construction that promises to be significantly lighter than the usual fiberglass or even aluminum.

Just in case it isn't flashy enough on the outside, Lecchi and company have contracted Fenice Milano to outfit the yacht's interior spaces. Yes, that's the same Fenice Milano that has gilded everything from the Fiat 500 to the Rolls-Royce Ghost. So you know it'll be suitably decadent (or horrifying). We've updated the high-res image gallery below as the yacht undergoes construction, accompanied by Fenice Milano's press release after the jump.

Fenice Milano and T.I.C. present: Lambo style power yacht by Mauro Lecchi design

Mauro Lecchi, renowned Italian designer, creates an aquatic creature that transmits all the sensations that are normally perceived while watching and driving the most famous Italian supercar:

The exterior styling is heavily contaminated by stretched lines, which recall the vents that run along the sides of ypercars, although in this case they are turned into big windows, which make the sporting spirit of the yacht instantly recognizable, even from a distance, and at the same time contribute to a more "liveble" and familiar internal environment by creating great surface lighting.

The internal layout is clearly of sporting inspiration, made by Fenice Milano designers, and offers endless possibilities for customization through the use of precious materials and sophisticated hi-tech equipment in full compliance with the unique tradition and craftsmanship of "Made in Italy".

The propulsion unit is assigned to double units of large performance capacity and contained consumption, thanks to the lightness of the structure obtained by an evolved construction system, which makes extensive use of advanced materials from the aerospace industry. This system is RI.NA. (Italian Shipping Register Air Force) certified. The millwork is made in wood fiber, Kevlar / carbon, for the reduction of weight, which combines high performance and low power consumption.

The cockpit offers a pair of external decks at stern, a double sofa bed, a bar and Entertainment Center, large windows and sky light filtering windows. The guide is lifted up and in central position, the access to the cozy and protected room on the forward deck is guaranteed by a step to the side of the driving position through an opening in the large windshield. The interior layout includes a complete environment for the owner, with a bathroom and a separate shower in addition to a guest bedroom with bathroom on the bow.

      For all Lamborghini's celebration of it's Italianess, I wonder where it would be today if America hadn't designed and built the F-117A Stealth fighter and F-22 Raptor? Lamborghini borrows so heavily from the design of those jets that I cannot see this boat or those cars as being truly Italian.

      its okay.... but seems a little 2 demential.

      Reminds me slightly of a much smaller yacht i designed 3 or 4 years ago now.

        Autoblog edit capabilities would be great !

        Oh ok. I think alot of the time designers take inspiration quite literally. when i look at this yacht i see the side vent on the reventon.
        • 3 Years Ago
        This does not particularly remind me of a Lamborghini. I don't think it's a successful design.
        • 3 Years Ago
        I was referring to the yacht in the article, not the one you designed. I think the Lamborghini foam language hasn't been applied well.
      • 3 Years Ago
      How do you get to the stern? Crawl over the glass or is that a door on the deck: seems silly to have to go into the boat to get from stern to bow.
        • 3 Years Ago
        There's steps from under the level with the glass that lead up to the front. Or at least it looks like there's a gap there.

      Im sure Ill get downvoted for this but oh well...

      As much as I like the design of this yacht, as much as I enjoy the thought of twin 950hp Seatek diesels, etc, etc.... When I see overly opulent, in-your-face type objectssuch as this yacht, I cant help but think of skin-and-bones children, too weak to even hardly move, starving to death on dirt floors somewhere. And when I look at objects such as Lecchi's upcoming mega-toy, I cant help but feel saddened. Im sure he has worked hard for his money, but... I dunno, there are just so many people in this world that cant even eat, and then you have that thing. sigh There, my softer side has spoken. LOL Carry on!

      Looks a bit like a cross training shoe in profile, and heavy...but still cool...
      • 3 Years Ago
      I’m sure it will be unbelievable as it combines two of my favorite things. However, I think it’s just a show of how much engineers want to push the envelope. It will never really be anything more than just that, a trophy of the latest technologies.

      I wonder how long these two Lambo engines will run for before calling it quits.
      • 3 Years Ago
      Hmmm...

      I like the Wallypower 118 more.

      http://www.wally.com/jumpch.asp?idChannel=44&idUser=0&attivo=2-6

      But this Lambo has a few lines in some places that are cooler you could say.....
      • 3 Years Ago
      I'm content with my Fiero GT, thank you very much. It's a Pontiac, you know.
      • 3 Years Ago
      meh, It may be starting to get old now. But I still think the Wallypower118 is the yacht of choice if you want a cool futuristic looking thing. This is still nice looking thou. It just looks like it's trying too hard to be different.
        • 3 Years Ago
        The Wallypower 118 is far better looking
        • 3 Years Ago
        @Link2877... nah, this is much better looking. it's a Lambo!
      • 3 Years Ago
      Articles like this are about as useful to me as the $15,000 watches AB writes about on here. Like AB Green, they should start another one called AB Rich.
      • 3 Years Ago
      I could really care less about what the super-rich do.

      Let's bring back the old jalopnik... More scrounging junkyard tips and suchlike.
        • 3 Years Ago
        You could care less? So you do care? Because if you could care less, there's still some caring left to care about what all rich people do.

        Funny though, you say this yet a few weeks ago you were the one who said he bought 2 Jaguar E-Types just to sell them.
