The suave spy's car brand of choice, Aston Martin, has announced its plans to launch a range of luxury powerboats in partnership with Quintessence Yachts, a Dutch boatbuilding company. Scheduled to be released later this year, the AM37 powerboats are still in the design stage, but if the images Aston Martin have released are anything to go by, these are going to be very impressive vessels indeed.

The 37-foot powerboats will be "allied to luxury sports car-like handling, performance and comfort," according to a statement, and will boast interactive voice controls, an HD-integrated touchscreen with navigation and multimedia system and remote-controlled functionality. The rest of the details are still under wraps, unless you're a serious buyer, in which case you'll be given the full spiel in a confidential briefing. It's all sounding very James Bond to us.
