Rolls-Royce to Power Aeroboat's Yacht

Rolls-Royce will provide the power for the Aeroboat S6.

Rolls-Royce Power Systems, parent company of MTU, will provide the power for the new Claydon Reeves Aeroboat yacht. The London-based design firm will use the latest Rolls-Royce MTU engines and joystick controls.

The Aeroboat line ranges from 55- to 100-foot-plus yachts, and the most recent design is this 65-footer. Known as the S6, the vessel will include twin twin 1,500 MTU V10 2000 M96 engines matched to KaMeWa waterjets with Rolls-Royce controls and joystick.

"Style and performance are key factors for every model, which is why we have chosen Rolls-Royce as our core supplier."

The Aeroboat S6 has a two-stateroom layout, and is designed to house a 12-foot tender or jet skis.

This is not the first time Claydon Reeves has collaborated with Rolls-Royce, but this is the first full line of yachts the two firms will be working on together.

"The positive reception from the market to the first Aeroboat spurred us on to develop the project into a new brand and line of yachts," said James Claydon.
