The Bugatti Niniette 66 – When Supercars and Yachts Collide

Bugatti makes fast, fabulous cars. Palmer Johnson makes fast, beautiful boats. Put them together and the result is an intelligent luxury sport yacht.
This 20-meter/65-foot limited edition craft is unmistakably Bugatti, tricked out with every luxurious material and feature a yacht of this size can handle, all while keeping pace with its history by hitting 44 knots without breaking a sweat, 48 if you opt for the bigger Man V8s.

Advanced, top of industry carbon materials and the revolutionary hull form are genetic gifts from Palmer Johnson’s luxury yachtbuilding heritage. Together, these iconic brands have created one incredible way to cruise.

Below, the functional galley with sink, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, and nicely organized storage provide all the necessary things to sustain a luxurious weekend. The master suite commands precious metals, carbon composite, butter-soft leather, and ultrasuede to serve in a most stylish format.
Not just fast and stylish, the Niniette 66 is also comfortable, with an advanced Palmer Johnson stabilized hull design that is cigarette slim, maximizing speed while minimizing fuel burn. Side sponsons add additional beam while increasing stability with improved power and roll dampening. The compact Man V8 engines, known for low vibration and low noise, are assisted by MJP waterjet propulsion.
The first in a series ranging between 50 and 80 feet, this beauty draws just .83 meters/2.7 feet, tempting an exploration of the gorgeous shallow waters of the Caribbean. Bugatti and Palmer Johnson have made all the right structural and mechanical choices. Now it’s your turn to choose from a broad selection of materials, colors, and finishes, to make this Bugatti your own.
