There's a Yacht to Match the Bugatti Chiron You'll Never Own
If you thought the Bugatti Chiron was impressive, this yacht is going to blow your mind.
Palmer Johnson has introduced the Bugatti Niniette 66 luxury yacht, inspired by the Chiron inside and out. And like Bugatti vehicles, buyers can customize the Niniette 66 with a countless selection of materials, colors and finishes. According to Palmer Johnson, the Niniette 66 achieves a speed of 44 knots or about 50 mph with efficiency and amazing comfort, with the super slim hull providing higher speeds with lower input power and fuel burn.
The standard configuration features a Man V8 engine with 16.2 liters of displacement and providing 1,000 horsepower. If that isn’t good enough for you, there’s a 1,200-hp engine option to give a top speed of 48 knots or about 55 mph.
But it’s the luxurious cabin that should catch your eye. The modern styling is heavily inspired by Bugatti vehicles, with carbon fiber throughout along with exotic wood finishes. There’s a hot tub onboard along with a fire pit and champagne bar.
The name comes from the Niniette speedboat Bugatti built in 1930, a nickname for Ettore Bugatti’s youngest daughter.
So how much does it cost? Well, Palmer Johnson will only share that on request. Only 66 units will ever be made, so not every single Chiron owner will be lucky enough to have own.
