New Jersey-based Sunsation dealer Coty Marine is teaming up with Manhattan Motorcars for the upcoming New York Boat Show, according to Coty Marine’s Dave Patnaude. A color-matched 2017 Lamborghini Huracan hardtop convertible automobile will share space with a Sunsation 32 CCX center console powered by twin Mercury Marine Verado 350 outboard engines and equipped with a $20,000 stereo system at the Coty Marine exhibit in the show, which runs Jan. 25-29 at the Javits Center.
“I was inspired by Cigarette always having some hot car from Mercedes-AMG next to their boats in Miami,” said Patnaude. “So I called the Lamborghini sales manager at Manhattan Motorcars—they sell several brands of exotic automobiles—and ran an idea by him.
“They are bringing us a brand-new, matte-white Lamborghini Huracan that will be displayed alongside the 32-foot Sunsation CCX, which also is white with blue, silver and gray painted stripes, in the booth,” he continued. “And they are going to dress up the Lamborghini with vinyl Coty Marine and Sunsation graphics.”
As show special, the boat-and-car combo will be offered at $575,000.
“It’s going to be the hottest booth in the show,” said Patnaude. “It’s going to be wild.”
