Cupra wants to prove that it is more than an automaker. To this end, the brand has teamed up with Barcelona-based De Antonio to produce a yacht inspired by the Cupra Formentor VZ5.

The D28 Formentor is a high performance yacht named after the first vehicle designed and developed specifically for the brand. The 394 horsepower yacht is capable of speeds up to 40 knots per hour.

The 7,99 meter V-body of the D28 is what allows it to reach top speed and travel comfortably. Thanks to the wide deck, the novelty will receive a lot of space and stability during anchoring.

The hiking deck allows you to literally walk along the entire perimeter of the yacht. This gives access to sun decks with armchairs and tables both fore and aft. The D28 Formentor also includes a fully equipped bathroom and ample space for 10 people.

In honor of Cupra Formentor, the D28 is finished in the signature Cupra Petrol Blue with brass accents. It is also equipped with carbon fiber accessories.

The yacht was demonstrated in Marina Vela harbor in the port of Barcelona together with Cupra Formentor VZ5. The limited edition crossover is powered by Audi’s 2.5-liter inline 5-cylinder engine. In this application, it develops 385 hp. and can accelerate to 100 km / h in just 4.2 seconds.

“The De Antonio Yachts D28 Formentor, inspired by our Cupra Formentor VZ5, will be just the first of many projects. We are both committed to sustainable mobility and are already considering building an e-HYBRID yacht next year, ”said CUPRA President Wayne Griffiths.

De Antonio D28 Formentor is expected to go into production by the end of the year.
