BOAT TAIL

Coachbuild by Rolls-royce

THE OCEAN GIFTS ITS PEARLS TO THOSE BRAVE ENOUGH TO DIVE BENEATH ITS SURFACE

Hand-built by expert Coachbuild artisans, this masterful creation is a tribute to the owner’s father, whose origins in the pearling industry grew into a family business. Rarer than a natural pearl, it is truly one-of-a-kind.

THE PINNACLE OF BESPOKE

Coachbuild, the most exclusive division of Bespoke, invites individuals of extraordinary achievement and ambition to design an original motor car representative of their personal histories.

As a patron of the arts with extensive knowledge of luxury, the owner of Boat Tail formed the ultimate partnership with Coachbuild engineers, designers, and artisans — the best the world has ever seen. 

A PEARLESCENT MASTERPIECE

To commence this collaboration, the owner presented four pearl shells carefully selected from his private collection. Their iridescent qualities inspired the exterior body colour, one of the most complex finishes Rolls-Royce has ever created.

Through a rigorous refinement process, designers captured the shells’ multifaceted tones by blending hues of soft rose and oyster with white and bronze mica flakes. The flakes provide a shimmering pearlescence which changes vibrancy in bright and dim light.


Accented with a rose gold-plated Spirit of Ecstasy, the bonnet of Boat Tail brings an element of warmth to the exterior. Its cognac paint, varnished with a crystal and iced matt clear coat, is infused with bronze and gold aluminium mica flakes — enhancing the motor car’s glistening aesthetic. 


The rear deck’s Royal Walnut veneer was chosen by the owner for its stunning maturing abilities. Over time, it will transition to the tonal properties of cognac, complimenting the bonnet even further. 

ELEVATED FUNCTIONALITY MEETS PERSONALISED ARTISTRY

The fascia clock is a mesmerising centrepiece, crafted from lustrous mother-of-pearl supplied by the owner. Designers intentionally set it against a minimal background, ensuring its nacreous beauty is the main focal point.  

The rear deck houses a generous hosting suite replete with the highest-quality essentials for celebratory occasions and al fresco dining. With this unique addition, Boat Tail extends the limits of what a motor car can be.

‘Far more than just a beautiful motor car, a coachbuilt creation becomes a legacy that embodies something extraordinarily personal and emotionally resonant for each client.’
