From Antonio Yachts D28 Formentor: Cupra's yacht with 400 hp

When Cupra was introduced as a spin-off from Seat, the message was clear: they wanted to create a universe of experiences. The car was just the spearhead of a program that tried to match the expectations of an audience eager for a difference , whether at the wheel, dressing or eating. That spirit is what has led the firm to present models as diverse as the 150 hp Formentor 1.5 TSI, a block that we would never have imagined under its hood as a Seat sports division. However, the new Cupra customer goes even beyond asphalt driving with one-of-a-kind pieces like the De Antonio Yachts D28 Formentor. This high-performance yacht, which is inspired by the image and performance character of the Martorell factory, will go on sale at the end of 2021.

The De Antonio Yachts D28 Formentor is the result of the first collaboration between the Barcelona shipyard and Cupra, which has resulted in a 400 hp showboat and a top speed of 40 knots . But his heart is just one example of things in common, the exterior is also a clear example of this unique and specific union with clear reminiscences of the Cupra Formentor.

A Cupra design

The De Antonio Yacht D28 model has been the basis used to carry out a design exercise worthy of the Martorell study. It is a limited edition of simple but forceful lines, far from the sensuality of a Formentor but very close in terms of concept. The Petrol Blue color and copper details give the definitive touch to associate them with the elegance and personality of cars like the Cupra León.

The compact of the firm has not, however, been the real inspiration for this sports boat. As we can in Marina Vela during these days, the Cupra Fromentor VZ5 shares exclusivity and space with the De Antonio Yachts D28 Formentor, in a clear nod to their similarities. CUPRA President Wayne Griffiths put it this way: “The De Antonio Yachts D28 Formentor, inspired by our CUPRA Formentor VZ5, is just the first project of many. We are both committed to sustainable mobility and are already studying the creation of an e-HYBRID yacht for next year ”.

Design and performance in the waves

In this space we are not used to talking about maritime vehicles but they also allow us to live unique experiences and unforgettable sensations. At the controls of this De Antonio Yachts D28 Formentor we will reach top speeds of 40 knots, with our hair blowing in the wind and a smile on our face. At 7.99 meters in length , which can be extended with a half meter stern platform, they feel really stable in the water.

The helmet, designed in a V-shape, will allow us to cut through the water and waves as if we were talking about an aerodynamic front. With its Petrol Blue color and details in black and carbon fiber, we will make our love for the engine clear, also off the asphalt. What’s more, who has not already imagined anchoring with this yacht? Thanks to its distribution, and the placement of the benches in the center, we will have a solarium area both in the bow and in the stern. We also have a full bathroom and space for up to ten passengers.
