Why this brand-new luxury 45-knot superyacht is perfect for a thrilling week in the Med

27 October 2022 • Written by Laura Nicholls for AB Yachts

AB Yachts, a brand of Viareggio-based Next Yacht Group, has become one of the company’s strongest assets. The 30-year-old brand has lured in new customers with its sleek 40-knot plus yachts and maintained a loyal client by sticking to its core values: speed and style. And as of this week, AB Yachts has delivered its latest addition to its range, the 37-metre AB 120 Beach, with some new features that prove it’s miles ahead of the competition.

First up is the yacht’s shallow 1.35-metre draft, which is ideal for shallow water regions. The first unit will be delivered to the US, where her owner can enjoy slicing through the Miami waterways, zipping between the Bahamas’ many cays or accessing the shallow coves of the Caribbean with ease. AB Yachts has kept its promise of offering yachts that make travelling more time efficient than its competitors. As a result, the AB 120 Beach has a range that can cover as much as Ibiza, Mallorca, St Tropez, Cannes, Monaco, Costa Smeralda and the Amalfi Coast – all within a week’s cruise.

When travelling at her top speed of 45 knots, everyone on board is kept completely comfortable as the high-tech AB 120 Beach runs with zero vibrations, so the only thing guests will feel is the pure adrenaline-pumping thrill of speed.

A thrill-seeking owner needn’t worry about the energy requirements for a high-speed journey as the yacht’s optimised hull and waterjet propulsion is efficient, needs little fuel and emits fewer emissions. This package works in combination with the yacht’s lightweight construction which combines glass, carbon, sandwich, honeycomb, and light-weight panels to help the vessel manoeuvre perfectly and power through the ocean safely and comfortably.

To build the AB 120 Beach, AB Yachts delved beyond the traditional volumes normally found on a boat of this size. The layout has, therefore, made way for a standout beach club – a feature exclusive to the AB 120 Beach. True to her name, the yacht’s aft houses a large multipurpose space that can be further extended with unfolding bulwarks, converting the space into a large waterfront terrace. As well as creating a serene area to relax, the sea-level aft can form a launch pad for watersports and toys. The float-in aft garage and the fore garage have space for a large tender, two three-jet-skis, several Seabobs, electric foil boards, SUPs, paddle boards, bikes, and inflatables. That means that not only is the AB 120 Beach speedy and easy to handle, she also offers plenty of space for fun when guests reach their destination.

Every inch of the interior can be customised to suit an owner. The slender lines of the yacht’s exterior flow through into the interior, where oak wood flooring and light-hued leathers create a soft ambience. The large windows not only bring plenty of light into all corners of the interior, but help frame the ever-changing outdoor scenery. From the main deck saloon, guests are given 360-degree views and impressive ceiling heights unexpected on board a yacht of this size. Classic furniture by Flexform, such as elegant Groundpiece sofas also populate the interiors. There is also a custom-built bar area and a convertible gym room. Meanwhile, the spacious flybridge is equipped with an outdoor cinema system.

Through its design of the AB 120 Beach, AB Yachts has succeeded in creating an efficient package that has distilled technology, innovative materials, and advanced construction techniques. And most importantly, has maintained the tradition of the AB Yachts brand and its quintessential Italian style.
