Italian superyacht builder AB Yachts, part of the FIPA Group, has launched its latest AB 116 series superyacht designed by Marco Arnaboldi.
The 36.2m, GRP-built superyacht is built for high performance. Powered by three MTU 16V 2000 M94 engines and three MJP waterjets, she reaches a blistering top speed of 50 knots and will cruise easily at 44 knots. Hull No 5 of the AB 116 model sports a silver hull and superstructure, aggressive exterior lines and ample living spaces. Her sister ship, AB 116 hull No 4 christened Ecrider, was delivered in September 2013.
Inside, her decor warm and welcoming, with bleached oak wood floors and white wood furniture, a calming contrast to her sleek exterior. The main saloon hosts a large U-shaped sofa, a 55-inch TV and a crystal dining table seating 10 guests. An opening roof connects this indoor space with the outside.
There is a second saloon below decks, welcoming guests with a ceiling height of four-metres-plus and flooded in light from the wheelhouse above. The guests accommodations on this level can be customised, and this owner requested a VIP double and twin stateroom, both with en suite bathrooms. The full beam owner's suite is set aft and includes a private office, lounge area, and en suite bathroom.
