XSR48 earns the name "supercar on the water"

Comparing a boat to a sportcar seems a bit of a stretch, but one look at the XSR48 in action and it is easy to see why it earned the description of “a supercar on water”. Even the dashboard has a sportscar feel.

According to the XSMG site, the XSR48 is a luxury powerboat with supercar looks. With a total of no less than 1600hp from two bi-turbo diesel engines, the XSR48 has supercar acceleration to match its stunning appearance.

But style has not been sacrificed for speed. The XSR48 combines the DNA and high performance of a supercar with superyacht styling making it the ‘Bugatti Veyron’ of the sea.

The XSR48 has been developed in collaboration with a number of world class design and construction partners including legendary hull designer Fabio Buzzi, award winning superyacht designers Redman Whiteley Dixon and High Modulus the world’s leading exponent in composite marine structures.

The XSR48 will be manufactured at the internationally renowned Berthon Shipyard in Lymington.
