Driving Performance on land and on water: 41′ AMG Carbon Edition

Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing presented the “41’ AMG Carbon Edition” at the Miami International Boat Show.

As the eleventh jointly developed boat in this longstanding partnership, this special edition sets new standards in terms of performance, handling and versatility. Its systematic lightweight construction and design are inspired by the current Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door Coupé (combined fuel consumption: 11.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 257 g/km).

Robust, lightweight carbon-fibre components are installed in the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition and the boat features an optimized centre of gravity for ideal handling. “For twelve years we have been exploring the limits of performance on land and at sea with Cigarette Racing. Inspired by the incredible new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door Coupé, the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition impresses with its extremely high performance and its expressive design”, says Tobias Moers, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.Driving Performance on land and on water: 41′ AMG Carbon EditionCourtesy of Mercedes-AMGDriving Performance on land and on water: 41′ AMG Carbon EditionCourtesy of Mercedes-AMG

To achieve dynamic performance coupled with versatility, the Cigarette Racing team engineers followed a single design aim in their development work: weight reduction. Compared to the GT R Performance boat of 2017, the engineers were able to save around 250 kilograms of weight thanks to an optimised mixture of lightweight materials which includes carbon-fibre.

The hull of the 41-foot (12.5-metre) long vessel uses innovative sandwich construction with carbon-fibre structural laminates on both sides of a lightweight core. This allows a more rigid structure of considerably reduced weight. Furthermore, the deck, rudder, roof lining and hardtop of the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition are also made of carbon-fibre. This lightweight construction also ensured it was possible to lower the boat’s centre of gravity, improving the handling during high speed manoeuvres.
