Silvestris Aquamotive, founded in 2005 by Drs. Maarten de Bruijn, ir. Jan Willem Schoenmakers and ing. Leon Vergunst.They have worked together since 2000, when they launched and developed the now world-famous Spyker Cars Company.
In the wake of that success the same team started a new venture developing an innovative, fully aluminum speedboat, named the Silvestris Aquamotive 23’ Sports Cabriolet. The first prototype was successfully built and tested in the same year.
A second, even more technologically advanced prototype during 2007. The technical development of the space-frame and hull was successfully concluded in 2007 and the CE certification for Coastal Waters has since been granted.
Following that, pre-marketing activities were initiated by exhibiting the speedboat at prestigious shows throughout Western Europe, including The Amsterdam Millionaire Fair.
The Monaco Yacht Show, the Cannes Boat Show, Salon Prive London and a variety of other luxury lifestyle events.
