The makers of the fast production super sports cars, Bugatti, and the prestigious luxury yacht builder, Palmer Johnson, have launched NINIETTE, the all-new joint project. NINIETTE is the new line of open carbon-fibre sport boats from 42 to 88ft in length, boasting distinctive Bugatti design elements and advanced materials.
As with the sports cars, the Bugatti design team followed its approach “Form follows Performance”. NINIETE with its carbon fiber hull takes up style elements of Bugatti’s legendary classic cars and mixes them up with the ground-breaking hull shape of Palmer Johnson’s SuperSport series. The design is characterized by the falling shoulder line of the Bugatti Type 57 C Atalante and the perfectly balanced proportions of the Type 41 Royale. Purist, flowing surfaces and lines create a perfect equilibrium between elegance and sportiness.
“The Palmer Johnson Niniette is the result of a maverick vision to perfect that delicate alchemy between desire and demand. Both Palmer Johnson and Bugatti share deeply held core values of reaching for what we cannot see, of reaching high to deliver the next unimagined experience, of always distancing ourselves from the herd,” comments Timur Mohamed, owner of Palmer Johnson. “This is backed by the deeply rooted claims of both brands to reach goals no one expects and always to go one step further. Bugatti and Palmer Johnson are united by the vision of not just thinking outside the box but moving into completely uncharted waters. We are proud to be able to use Bugatti’s name and design DNA for our exciting new model line.”
The design of the NINIETTE’s hull is based on Palmer Johnson’s revolutionary SuperSport series, and has been designed to reach a maximum speed of 38 knots. The central model in the new series is the 63-foot PJ63 Niniette, boasting a 63 m² salon on deck, a 43 m² salon below deck, lovely accommodation for up to 4 guests and a crew cabin. On request, Bugatti can tailor the interior to meet customers’ style and needs. The 42-foot PJ42 Niniette and the 88-foot PJ88 Niniette are also available. The production time for all three models is about 12 months.
