How do you subtly inject elements of Porsche’s automotive history into a new superyachtwithout turning it into a Vegas theme restaurant? By commissioning Studio F.A. Porsche to execute the design.

The GTT 115 has a number of impressive firsts for a superyacht its size, including twin spaces for its hybrid engines, a custom stabilization system, and a four-zone, 1,022-square-foot flybridge with more space than larger superyachts. The Vripack-designed hull provides exceptionally low fuel consumption, delivering a transatlantic range and a top speed of 21 knots. The GTT 115 also uses Fortjes pods for propulsion, rather than a traditional shaft and propeller system.

Beyond its technical prowess the GTT 115 is also a yacht imbued with the “design spirit” of Studio F.A. Porsche. Most of the design cues implemented by Studio F.A. Porsche are understated and elegant, including the Pepita houndstooth fabric in the interior and in sections of the exterior. This same fabric pattern was used in the Porsche 911 series in the 1970s. This pattern has been offset with high-gloss Macassar ebony veneers, dark-brown saddle leather, Alcantara, Persian carpets, and a rare Sahara Noir marble.

The studio used loose furniture throughout, not only to maximize the boat’s sense of laid-back elegance, but also to minimize weight.
