First look: Inside Ava Yachts' Kando 110 Lady Caroline

7 March 2023 • Written by Katia Damborsky

The interiors of the 33.6-metre Lady Caroline have been revealed for the first time following her delivery at the end of 2022. The yacht is the first unit in AvA Yachts' Kando 110 series, but she was being used as a demonstration model by the Antalya-based yard until she was sold in June 2022 to a buyer represented by Gilman Yachts.

The second hull in the series is Infinity Nine, which was delivered to NBA star Tony Parker in November of last year.

The Kando 110 series has been envisioned as a "compact explorer" line, built in steel and aluminium with a volume of 320GT and a range of 6,400 nautical miles.

Both hulls one and two have a similar layout, but Lady Caroline has five-cabin configuration whereas Infinity Nine has six cabins, sacrificing a sky lounge. Design comes courtesy of AvA Yachts' in-house design team which has put particular effort into creating light-filled, airy spaces on board.

Both the main and upper deck saloons span 48 square metres, and the upper deck lounge is full-beam, with full-height windows that offer a sweeping view outside. Automatic sliding doors framed by stainless steel allow easy access to the exterior. 

Four of the guest cabins can be found on the lower deck, while the owner's cabin is located on the main deck forward. Stretching across the yacht's full 7.8-metre beam, it occupies 27 square metres of space and has similar high windows as the upper deck. 

The master suite is characterised by large windows

In terms of al fresco spaces, Lady Caroline is home to a generous sundeck with an aft-facing Jacuzzi bordered by sunpads. There is a shaded bar and a casual dining space, along with further seating and a helm station further aft.

Elsewhere, there is dining on the main deck aft and a good-sized swim platform that allows easy water access.

On the interior, AvA Yachts' designers have used a mix of high-gloss American walnut in combination with wenge wood and dark leather furniture. A satin-finish wenge has been used for the flooring, mixed with off-white upholstery to create layers of pale shades. 

AvA Yachts describes the effect as "harmonious" with a "soft-contrast ambience, free from excessive decor elements and meticulously planned according to effect and functionality".

The yacht can reach a maximum speed of 14 knots

There are two double crew cabins plus a captain's cabin which is attached to the wheelhouse.

In terms of performance, Lady Caroline can reach a top speed of 14 knots, trimmed back to a cruising speed of 10 knots, powered by twin Volvo engines.
