A Chiron for the seas

3y ago


- Looking for a lavish counterpart to your equally lavish new Bugatti Chiron? This new 'sport yacht' could be just the ticket.
- It's called the Bugatti Niniette 66. It's the product of a collaboration between Bugatti and yacht specialist Palmer Johnson.
- It features the Chiron's signature sweeping side curve.
- According to Bugatti, a yacht concept was presented to buyers in early 2015 and several expressed interest.
- The Niniette is 20 metres long (66ft) and uses carbonfibre in its construction to improve its rigidity while keeping its weight down.
- Its deck has a jacuzzi, seating and a fire pit.
- The yacht will be the first in a series of several, ranging from 50ft to 80ft.
- Turn on the Jacuzzi and break out the Lonely Island...
- Below deck you'll find several cabins.
- The master suite features a double bed.
- Palmer Johnson says that the interior uses only the highest-quality leathers, granites, metals and carbons.
- You can have any interior style you like, if you're willing to pay for it.
- The Niniette is claimed to offer "the highest levels of comfort for its passengers."
- The boat has a draft of 1.3m, meaning it can cruise in the Bahamas without beaching.
- Power comes from a pair of 16.2-litre 917bhp MAN V8 marine diesels and a pair of MJP waterjets.
- Its fuel capacity is a stonking 2200 litres. Fill it up at your local canal-side Tesco and you'd get a bill for £2640.
- Special side sponsons improve stability at lower speeds.
- The Niniette is claimed to have a top speed of 44 knots. That's about 51mph. Somewhat slower than a 260mph Chiron, then, but fast by yatch standards.
- The builder, Palmer Johson, was founded in 1918. Bugatti also used to build boats; the Niniette takes its name from a speedboat built by the company in 1930.

  • I'm guessing that to buy the boat you're supposed to sell your Bugatti Chiron right?

    • Before buy the boat, first you need to be able to buy a Chiron.
