During the international driving debut of the new XF Sportbrake Jaguar has unveiled a styling study of a Speedboat that translates the design DNA of the brand into the luxury yacht world.


For the development of the Concept Speedboat, Jaguar Cars consulted with yacht design specialist Ivan Erdevicki Naval Architecture & Yacht Design Inc. and bespoke design project management companySeventy Seven Design.

The Concept Speedboat has a gel coat fiberglass hull combined with a natural teak decking. This is split by a carbon fibre fin, inspired by the iconic Jaguar D-Type.

The front of the boat flows seamlessly into the screen and the red 2+1 cabin follows the sporting character of Jaguar cars. Jaguar Cars’ heritage is also subtly recognized with fuel filler caps inspired by the Series 1 XJ.

A polished aluminum propeller and pop-up mooring post imitates how the boat could be powered and docked respectively.

Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum explained: “We recognize that both our existing and future customers enjoy diverse and active lifestyles. With the launch of the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake, we had an opportunity to create a vision of how our design philosophy might be applied to an alternative product, in which speed and beauty are also priorities.

“The Concept Speedboat looks powerful. It follows, in so many ways, the idea of a traditional speedboat but with the sleek and fast characteristics that you would expect from a Jaguar Car.”

Ian Callum added: “I hope our design inspires people to think about our products in a much broader sense, especially in lifestyle and enjoyment. I have always had a passion to create such an object and it seemed fitting that we relate this to a lifestyle vehicle such as the Jaguar XF Sportbrake. The two sit together perfectly.”

The XF Sportbrake features a load-space capacity of up to 1675 liters and matches the saloon’s aerodynamics, torsional stiffness and dynamic handling ability. It goes on sale in UK and throughout Europe in November.
