There is NO substitute
If you know the significance of this headline, or that the 1998, 911 Carerra was the first water-cooled production Porsche, then the Dynamiq GTT 115 could well be the superyacht you’ve been looking for.
It’s often said that Porsche drivers are the only real car enthusiasts. Granted, some Italian-made supercars are quicker, but non require the subtle driver inputs needed to hustle along a rear-engined 911.

The 911 of the Sea
Dynamiq has teamed up with Studio F.A. Porsche to create a superyacht injected with the Stuttgart brand’s considerable DNA

Whether it’s designing a wristwatch, or a Miami skyscraper (yes, they really did) the studio can transform brands into experiences, while guaranteeing the highest standards on every project it initiates. As it happens, we’re on board the studio’s latest creation, Dynamiq’s GTT 115 - the first ever Porsche-injected superyacht.
Many of the GTT 115’s Porsche nuances are obvious, once you spot them, that is. The black waterline stripe with its Carrera script is a classic detail, as is the hartop’s Targa style treatment. And the more observant will have spotted the port and starboard cleat openings, which are shaped like 911 rear light clusters. [To be continued...]
