When it comes to the automotive world’s most prodigal minds, Etienne Salomé stands among a select few. To say that the renowned French designer earnt a surprising number of kudos from the industry’s contemporaries for his work on Bugatti’s La Voiture Noire would be an understatement, and now, he’s decided to take his innovative ideas to the nautical stage.

After founding his own design consultancy and giving birth to Salomé Yachts, Etienne set out to create one of the most delectable sports tenders of the past decade. In tasteful fashion, he revealed his new design, dubbed the Atlantic, at the Monaco Yacht Show, enamoring onlookers with a futuristic, water-borne example that inherits a number of influential traits from Formula 1’s established racers. At just 12-meters long, the Bugatti Type 57SC-inspired yacht is built for speed — a notion that’s reinforced by the inclusion of two 440HP Volvo engines, as well as a bespoke air tunnel that’s been carved through the boat’s hull, offering enhanced aerodynamic prowess at speeds greater than 55-knots. With an expected delivery date of 2020, each of the Atlantic’s 12 examples will be hand-built in Italy before making their way to buyers for an estimated $1,748,400.
