White Glove Lux­ury

Power & Motor Yacht - - 40 -

Okay, it’s a little deca­dent. But the new Con­ti­nen­tal GT con­vert­ible is mak­ing waves, and not only for the fact that it fea­tures some knock­out sta­ples of the yacht in­dus­try in its be­spoke de­sign. The Ga­lene Edi­tion, named af­ter the Greek goddess of calm seas, is the re­sult of Princess Yachts ink­ing a three-year part­ner­ship with Bent­ley Mo­tor­sport.

Is the 4-liter V8 GT, of which only 30 will be made, a bit showy? Maybe. But the boot (read: trunk) is un­de­ni­ably gor­geous, made from a unique pin­striped wal­nut ve­neer in­spired by the deck­ing found on Princess yachts. It’s a new wood op­tion for the au­to­mo­bile com­pany. Will de­sign in­spi­ra­tion flow the other way? For now, it’s too soon to tell. —S.M.
