Bugatti’s Luxury Yachts: The Cheapest Boat Starts at €2 Million


Bugatti has teamed up with Palmer Johnson to launch a line of luxury sport yachts.

The open carbon-fibre sport yachts, called Niniette, will be available in three models ranging 42 to 88 feet in length.

The smallest cheapest boat will start at €2 million, while the larger models will get a price of more than €3 million.

Niniette was a nickname of Lidia, daughter of Bugatti founder Ettore Bugatti. Mr. Ettore had already developed racing boats and yachts in the 1930s.


The luxury yacht will feature a carbon-fiber hull and two-tone color scheme. The design, highlighted by a contrasting blend of ultra-strong ultra-lightweight titanium and dark blue exposed carbon fiber, is characterized by the falling shoulder line of the Bugatti Type 57 C Atalante and the perfectly balanced proportions of the Type 41 Royale, according to Bugatti.

The carbon fiber yachts’ top speed is 38 knots or about 70 km/h.

The PJ63 Niniette is the central model in the new series, with a length of 63 feet or almost 20 meters, and a beam of 20.3 feet or 6.2 meters. This yacht features luxurious accommodation for up to 4 guests and a crew cabin. The model will have a basic price of about €3.25 million.

“On request, Bugatti can tailor the interior to meet customers’ individual requirements,” according to a statement.

Other boats are PJ42 Niniette and the PJ88 Niniette, with lengths of 42 feet or 13 meters, and 88 feet or 27 meters, respectively.

Bugatti said that the production time for all three models is about 12 months.
