Default Powerboats designed by Porsche Design Studio: "Fearless Yachts"

Promotional Video clip w/525EFI Merc motor

The Fearless 28 is a custom designed powerboat styled by Porsche Design.

The Fearless 28 is powered by a 550 horsepower V10 taken from the Dodge Viper and equipped for marine use.

The Fearless 28 by Porsche Design has seating for five passengers in complete luxury while also providing the driver with a focused environment for high speed boating.

The construction of the Fearless 28 revolves around the seamless carbon-fibre reinforced fiberglass deep-V hull finished in stunning silver. The design of the upper deck echoes that of the legendary Porsche sports cars including the 911 and also the Porsche Carrera GT.

In the cockpit and cabin the Fearless 28 has a high-end stereo system comprising of an XM satellite radio, AM/FM radio, CD, DVD player and an i-Pod docking station.

The top speed of the Fearless 28 by Porsche Design is 80+ mph, and at a 40mph cruising speed it has a 164 mile range.

The Fearless 28 is the first in a range of yachts styled by Porsche Design for Fearless. The lineup will eventually include 44, 68, 125 and 150 foot versions.


I hadn't read about Fearless powerboats and search didn't pull anything on them. Looks like they were in Powerboat July '07


At $330K the 28' may not take off, but hey folks routinely spend $500K on their Carrera GT road vehicles Couple articles mention the 525Merc EFI in the 28' Is the V10 an ILMOR engine?

Looks like the 44' will debut at the Miami '08 show That machine looks badA$$ and I'm sure the price will be as well

Lots of links and info here Fearless Yachts website

Saw it at the Sarasota poker run earlier this year. It sure looked sweet idling around the Hyatt docks.

Reminds me of an adrenaline and so does the price

Come on now, that fancy fiberglass work has got to be worth atleast 150K more than your standard powerboat

I don't like it. It looks very 50's-futuristic.
