Pictured above is claimed to be the ‘Bugatti Veyron’ of the sea. The XSR48 luxury powerboat from XSMG is inspired from the world’s finest supercars. The XSR48 combines the DNA and high performance of a supercar with superyacht styling thereby making it the ‘Bugatti Veyron’ of the sea. With a total of no less than 1600hp from two bi-turbo diesel engines (Isotta Fraschini 11.3L engines), the XSR48 has supercar acceleration to match its stunning appearance.

While the supercar DNA takes inspiration from the Kevlar, the carbon-fibre hull/deck structure is based on an F1 style monocoque right through to the cockpit and dashboard. The XSR48 has been developed in teamwork with a number of world class design houses and designers, including renowned hull designer Fabio Buzzi, award winning superyacht designers Redman Whiteley Dixon and High Modulus, the one of the world’s leading exponents in composite marine structures.
