Hermes Speedster - Messenger of the Gods on the Water
Hermes Speedster is a neat classic-styled runabout with traits reminiscent from the 1959 Porsche 356 and the gentleman-style runabout boats of the 30s’. The Hermes Speedster successfully combines luxury, efficiency, style and comfort.
Seven Seas Yachts was founded in 2011 and is based in the UK. In 2012 the first 17 meter yachts the Legend 54 was created, the Legend 56 Fly and Hermes GranTurismo followed. The development of the Hermes Speedster started in 2015, while the production of the model started in 2017. Furthermore, in 2018 the Hermes Speedster was awarded as boat of the year 2018 by HISWA.
Now in 2021, the Hermes Speedster is sold worldwide.
It took its name from the Ancient Greek God Hermes. The messenger of the Gods, son of Zeus and one of the twelve principal gods of Olympus.
Also God of speed, wealth, luck and travel.
The Hermes Speedster comes in various color combinations. The customer can customize the color of the hull, real leather, carpet and convertible top. This way the customer has the opportunity to cruise on a unique Hermes Speedster. Furthermore, the owner has the opportunity to have his/her name or the name of the boat engraved or embroidered on several parts of the boat.
Each piece of the interior, from the seats and the steering wheel to the speakers and the switches, is especially designed and hand crafted with attention to detail. Due to the convertible top, in a few seconds, you can enjoy your boat, despite poor weather conditions.
The Hermes Speedster is a very unique boat, looks wise and also performance wise. Thanks to the patented Amfihull, the Hermes Speedster is able to cruise from 5mph up to 45mph, as the boat maintains at all speeds very low trim angles between 2 and 2.8 degrees. Unlike other boats there is no specific speed at which the Hermes transitions to plane, instead as the speed increases the boat gradually comes out of the water maintaining a nearly horizontal attitude.
As there is very low drag resistance and no hump coming on plane, the jet drive offers you insane acceleration. Considering all the above, the very low center of gravity and the surprisingly low weight, Hermes ensures a very soft, safe and fun ride.
The Hermes Speedster is powered by a Rotax 1503NA 155hp and has a top speed of 45mph.
With only 0.27m (0.9ft) of draft, the Hermes Speedster can access any exotic beach despite how shallow the waters may be. The incredible low weight of 680kg, the jet drive propulsion and the low draft will let you take it out on the sand with ease and comfort. Its LOA is 6.75m and the beam is only 1.8m, its dimensions and its low weight makes it really easy and comfortable to tow the Hermes Speedster with any car.
