Not just a mere prop, the Jaguar Concept Speedboat is a design study which allows customers to fully appreciate the functional aspects of Jaguar XF Sportbrake, the company’s new performance station wagon. Headed by Ian Callum, the Director of Design at Jaguar, the design team approached the Concept Speedboat as it with any automotive concepts. But since this was a new realm for the company, Callum brought in yacht design specialists from Ivan Erdevicki Naval Architecture & Yacht Design Inc. and Seventy Seven Design for consultation.
At an overall length of 20-foot (6.1-meter), the Concept Speedboat features a fiberglass hull, gel coated, with natural teak decking. As a homage to the Jaguar D-Type, a carbon fiber fin accentuates the boat’s overall form further. With a 2+1 cockpit in contrast red, Jaguar designers also took in considerations to add the car maker’s lineage by including fuel filler cap like that from the Series 1 XJ. As compelling as the design, there are no plans to build the Concept Speedboat, at the moment that is. In the meantime, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake performance wagon will be available at Jaguar’s European dealers in November.
