A CLASS BY ITSELF
Commissions at the House of Rolls-Royce are reaching historical levels, and while you may enter a dealership and customize a Phantom. Ghost, or Cullinane, there is one Rolls-Royce that is unattainable - The Boat Tail.
The creation and sales of the three limited-edition Boat Tails foreshadow a momentous future for the modern coachbuilding movement, with Rolls-Royce confirming Coachbuilding is now a permanent fixture in its portfolio. The spirit of Rolls-Royce Coachbuild is that each commission tells a unique story and personal to its owner, reflecting their history, tastes, and sensibilities.
The first Boat Tail debuted at the prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in 2021. The second (pictured above) debuted a year later at the same venue and was commissioned by an avid collector whose family business grew from his father’s origins in the pearling industry. Hence, the client’s personal collection of four pear shells inspired the unique exterior finish and interior detailing. The third is currently in production.
