Having a boat with a Rolls-Royce engine inside it is the kind of over-the-top luxury move that would make Robin Leach (remember that guy? Yes, he’s still alive, we just checked) blush. And that’s exactly what’s happening here with the Aeroboat by Claydon Reeves.

This vastly futuristic vessel gets its go from a reconditioned, fuel-injected Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 engine that’s been ‘detuned’ to 2,500 horsepower, giving it the power to reach a top speed of between 75 and 95 knots, or 86 and 109 mph. With a dazzling design inspired by the Spitfire, the World War II single-seat fighter plane, the Aeroboat features an aircraft-inspired throttle and switchgear, as well as shock-mounted forward seats that resemble the Spitfire’s landing gear. The materials used are a masterful blend of cutting edge and classic, with carbon fiber and Kevlar combining with wood veneer to add up to a Lifestyles of the Rich Famous-worthy vessel. [Purchase]
