Rolls-Royce’s One-Of-A-Kind ‘Boat Tail’ Is Essentially A Yacht On Wheels

Rolls-Royce is solidifying their commitment to making coachbuilding a permanent part of their brand portfolio, and they’re doing so by unveiling their most ambitious project ever: the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail. Three of the cars will be custom-built for clients, with the first having just been revealed.

Inspired by J-Class yachts, the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is a luxury sedan with the look of an aquatic vessel. At 5.8m long, it’s practically as big as a boat, and every line of the body was custom-designed to evoke a nautical theme. This is most obvious on the car’s rear, which houses a wooden deck topped with Caleidolegno veneer. To celebrate the client’s love of hosting, the deck opens butterfly-style at the push of a button, unveiling an impressive “hosting suite.” The suite has two sides dedicated to aperitifs and cuisine and includes a telescoping parasol, dual cocktail tables, two hidden folding stools, and a dual refrigerator that keeps the client’s preferred vintage of Armand de Brignac champagne stored precisely at six degrees celsius. The car’s interior is also insanely luxurious, with the same wood from the deck used on the floor and his-and-hers custom Bovet reversible tourbillon timepieces embedded in the dash. The watches can be removed from the dash to be worn on the wrist and took three years to develop. You can learn more about this insane project by heading over to Rolls-Royce.
