    Porsche has launched its very own super-yacht which will set owners back £12million and come complete with a spa pool, al-fresco dining area and space for up to four guests below decks.

    The stunning craft was launched at Viareggio, in Italy, and will now travel to Monaco in time for the annual Yacht Show which runs from September 27 to 30.

    Just seven of the yachts will be made, guaranteeing the owners an almost-unique slice of boating history, provided they can stump up the cash to purchase one.

    The German car-maker says the boat was designed for 'car lovers and forward-thinking yacht owners who appreciate the advantages of speed, style and our philosophy of intelligent performance.'

    Interior styling was taken care of by Italian design-house Minotti, whose works appeared in the film Fifty Shades Darker, and features carbon fibre detailing, marble counter-tops, and fine leather finishes.

    The 115-foot yacht is powered by two 1,650 horsepower MAN V12 diesel engines paired to Fortjes pod-drives, giving it a top speed of 21 knots and a maximum range of 3,400 nautical miles.

    You know what a boat is, right? A hole in the water that you throw your money into. :laugh:

    No rear wing and engine doesn't look like it's rear mounted. I don't like this Porsche...

    They actually are very much road legal.

    Porshe would rather you keep them as a 6k paperweight though... Definitely a worthy investment for any money centric rich bitch hedge fund play boy manager

    pretty expensive for what looks like a channel barge .Also its not fast.
    Edit : the video mentions that it has a range of 3000 nautical miles at 10 kn.That speed was what most mechant ships did during WW2 era. I`m calling this one a flop, probably that`s why its a limited edition.
