Apparently, electricity and water do mix.
This rare 1990 Riva Ferrari 32 speedboat is going up for auction in Monaco this month, complete with Testarossa styling and twin 8.0-liter V8 engines. And it could be yours for the price of a new California T.
Silver Arrows Marine launches Mercedes, the first example of the new Arrow460-Granturismo designed by Mercedes-Benz Style on the French Riviera.
Henrik Fisker is dipping his toes in the water in partnership with Italian shipyard Benetti to design a new line of superyachts as long as ten Karmas parked end to end.
Bugatti picks up where it left off in the 1930s, licensing its name to speedboats from built from carbon fiber, inspired by the lines of its classics.

We're introducing a new daily feature at Autoblog Military today, called "Military Terminology." As you may have guessed based on that rather obvious title, each day, we'll be posting a common military phrase, term or acronym and endeavor to explain what it means, how it was developed and if it has any other less official meanings. As always, topics will have a decided lean towards the vehicles, ships and aircraft of the armed forces.
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. This is another one of those occasions.
Somewhat reminiscent of the all-electric Rinspeed sQuba concept from the 2008 Geneva Motor Show, the new Fomm Concept One is an electric car with a bit of buoyancy. This Japanese car is being billed not only as the "world's smallest class four-seater electric vehicle," but also as an EV that floats and "even moves on water surface." In other words, this thing is kind of a boat.
Cigarette Racing has another Mercedes-Benz AMG-themed boat headed out to sea. After The SLS AMG-inspired 46-foot Rough Rider in 2010 and the C63 AMG Black Series-inspired 50-foot Marauder in 2012, this year's Miami Boat Show will introduce the 42-foot Huntress, theme provided by the G63 AMG.
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 thought that was too wasteful in the name of epic leisure. As such, you see the incredible contraption in front of you.
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.
