    ETC: Aeroboat packs 1,100 seahorses of Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 power
    1400673480

    We don't typically cover boats here – this is, after all, Autoblog and not Aquablog – but every so often something comes along that makes us want to dip our toes in the water, whether it's a Jaguar-designed speedboat, a Gulf-liveried megayacht or a Lamborghini-powered Riva Aquarama. ...

    Official: Nissan rowed the Note ashore [w/video]
    1382628480

    Normally we wouldn't suggest trying to float your car on water, but Nissan has made some modifications to turn its new Versa Note hatchback into a makeshift rowing shell. Nissan replaced the car's rear seats with a sliding rear rowing seat, modified the doors to open wider at 90 degrees and ...

    Video: Van, boat and RV combine to make water sports more awesome
    1354910280

    When one needs to transport a large powerboat great distances, it presents a rather wasteful problem. See, you have plenty of livable space on the boat, but said boat is up on a trailer, thus one must either tow one's craft with a large RV or stay in hotels. The owner of this... thing evidently ...

    Official: Jaguar designs seductive speedboat concept
    1351627200

    As if Jaguar needed to wow us further with beautiful design, Ian Callum has gone and commissioned a 20-foot watercraft as slick as the company's new F-Type sports car and far more unattainable. The Brits say they created The Concept Speedboat to complement and accompany the newly introduced XF ...

    ETC: Mini continues relentless expansion into... boating?
    1350750660

    With 11 variants available, it's easy to think Mini has already covered almost every possible automotive segment it could. Almost. There's still no Mini pickup truck, no Mini cement mixer, no Mini minivan. And, until now, no seafaring Mini. But hold off on those Mini-themed life jackets, ...

    Official: Mercedes mastering the seas with 'Silver Arrows' yacht concept
    1348437660

    Mercedes-Benz's three-pointed star was intended by Gottlieb Daimler to signify three modes of transport: land, air and sea. Land has been well taken care of for more than 125 years. The brand took a leap back into the sky with a Eurocopter EC145 interior designed by Mercedes-Benz Style, its ...

    Video: Boat passes car on highway in - where else - Russia
    1343084400

    We've had some close calls while towing, though we've been fortunate enought to never have to deal with a calamity like the one you see above. From what we can tell, the driver of the truck in the video below was calmly driving along when his boat and trailer decided to blaze their own trail. We ...

    Aston Martin boat concept takes Bond off-shore
    1318247880

    As varied as the cars that James Bond has driven in the various 007 movies, few have proven as inseparable from the Bond image as Aston Martin. But what of the boats? Bond's watercraft have ranged from hovercraft to submarines, Sunseeker speed boats to megayachts and even naval ships. But one ...

    Nissan designer sets sail in racing catamaran for world championship
    1313150400

    Car designers are constantly up to all kinds of mischief, and the results often don't look like they'd hold water. But we certainly couldn't say that about Matt Stuble. The team leader at Nissan Design America happens also to be a world-class sailing champion, having started racing ice boats in ...

    Infiniti trades miles for knots with QX56-powered luxury boat project
    1311768000

    Yes, we obsessively cover the auto industry, but that doesn't mean we don't enjoy other modes of transportation. We may even get downright giddy when two different worlds collide, like for example, when a boat is powered by a large automobile engine. Infiniti must feel the same way because the ...

    Love Me Tender: SACS pays homage with Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari dinghy
    1311336060

    Back a couple of years ago, Italian boatcrafter SACS teamed up with both Lancia and Abarth – each a division of the Fiat group – on a pair of ridiculously powerful rigid inflatable boats. The Lancia model packed 1,120 horsepower and a closed cockpit, the Abarth a trifecta of ...

    121-foot megayacht en-Gulfed by classic racing livery
    1308688140

    Most mega yachts come in white. Some cut a different path through the water with dark blue, forest green or even dark red hulls. But this, this is something else entirely. The proud new owner of the 37-meter (121-foot) motor yacht you see here is evidently a certifiable car nut. He named his ...

    Bugatti Veyron Sang Bleu speedboat concept by Ben Walsh
    1304796780

    The Bugatti Veyron has sufficiently proven itself to be king of the road, but what happens when you run out of road? The earth's surface is, after all, covered in more water than it is land, let alone paved portions thereof. Ben Walsh's solution? This Bugatti-inspired speedboat design. A ...

    Audi trimaran concept floats hybrid propulsion on the open water
    1304683080

    While hybrid propulsion is becoming more and more common in cars – concept cars especially – the application on the water has remained somewhat more limited. Some larger motorboats might incorporate sideways electric thrusters to help with docking, but that's by and large the extent ...
