The award-winning Hermes Speedster is finally here. Seven Seas Yachts is excited to launch this amazing sport boat in the Americas. Crowned as Boat of the Year at the 2018 HISWA International Marine Trade Show in the Netherlands, the Speedster is a stunningly sleek and beautiful runabout with its design being inspired by the legendary Porsche 356 Speedster.
The quality of craftsmanship is nothing short of stunning. Hand crafted, painstakingly manufactured and customizable to customer’s wishes, the US edition of the Hermes Speedster comes with full specification and no optional extras. Items such as full marine leather upholstery throughout, Esthec teak decking, underwater lights, bimini top, full instrumentation with electrically actuated information center, sound system with Bluetooth, and much more are all standard equipment. The Hermes Speedster is painted to the highest standards in either regular or metallic colors to the owner’s preference, at no additional cost.
Featuring the patented and revolutionary low-drag Amfihull design, the Hermes Speedster exhibits superb acceleration and on-water performance by maintaining a nearly horizontal attitude throughout the planing-mode speed range. Moreover, the Speedster’s low center of gravity provides great on-water handling as well as class-leading vessel stability underway. At rest, the Speedster boasts an incredibly low side inclination of just 7 degrees with 1000lbs of weight on one side. Watertight compartments generating positive buoyancy make the Speedster unsinkable. Eco-friendly by virtue of an exceptionally low fuel consumption of almost 8 miles per US gallon, the Speedster is quick to come on plane. Acceleration and handling are both impressive and exhilarating. The Hermes Speedster is powered by the Rotax 1503 NA 155hp by BRP – the same engine that powers the top-of-the-line See-Doo watercraft and with service points available worldwide. For a fully green, zero emissions package the Hermes Speedster is also available with electric propulsion.
Based in the UK, Seven Seas Yachts was founded in 2011. Production facilities are located in Greece. The company launched its first yacht, the Legend 54, in 2012 which was followed soon thereafter by the Legend 56 Fly and the Hermes GranTurismo. The Hermes Speedster is the company’s most recent launch.
