Missing from the Sportsman Shows: Bentley’s $300K Fly Fishing SUV

Problem: We load up the same old truck, drive the same old highway to the same old fishing hole, and catch the same old fish with our same old buddies. It’s a routine we’ve had for years that is desperately in need of a shake up.

Solution: Thankfully Bentley Motors identified our problem and tasked their top designers to come up with a fix. Behold Bently’s Bentayga Fly Fishing SUV by Mulliner – a Valley angler’s cure for the same old routine (or something like that).

“Bentayga was created for the person who wants to seek new landscapes and take a fresh look at their world– to see through new eyes. For Bentayga will reveal new ways to experience familiar journeys on road and deliver new journeys in new environments off-road. It was by understanding these needs and desires that led Bentley to reappraise, reshape and redefine the luxury SUV, and what it is capable of.” – Bentley Motors

Mulliner is Bentley’s custom shop credited for designing the fly fishing package. The $100K add-on includes a master tackle station made of burr walnut containing a fly tying vise and tools, a refreshment case, three metal flasks and a set of Mulliner fine-china tableware, a food storage compartment, saddle-leather-wrapped wood trunk lined with neoprene, waterproof boot-floor and electronic dehumidifier unit to ensure the area remains fresh and dry. With a base price $200K, the Bentayga could be yours for only $300K!

“Fly fishing is a sport that requires a variety of equipment and clothing, so it was essential to package the rods, reels, waders, boots and fly-tying station into the car in a luxurious, accessible and elegant way – and the end result is truly extraordinary.” – Geoff Dowding, Director of Mulliner

Why yes, yes it is.
