It’s safe to say that if you were the brains behind the design of the modern Mini Cooper, the Ferrari F430, and the McLaren P1, you know what you’re doing with a pen and paper. So when Frank Stephenson, design director of McLaren Automotive, debuted his boat, Riverbreeze, we knew it was more than meets the eye.

Unlike his other creations, Stephenson’s boat is all about taking things slow. It uses an electric powertrain, allowing the boat to smoothly and quietly traverse through water. In fact, its engine is a torpedo-shaped, 4.2-kilowatt electric pod motor that uses eight Varta 12-volt marine batteries, so there’s minimal noise. The 31-footer uses beautiful hardwoods including rosewood and mahoganies from Brazil and Africa, all of which have been coated with 35 layers of lacquer, resulting in an all-wet look.
