New Model: AB Yachts 100

The AB Yachts shipyard, part of Fipa Group, is proud to announce the launch of its new 100 model.  The AB 100 is the first of new projects that Fipa Group is completing for the 2016 summer season and which will make their world premiere at the upcoming autumn boat shows.  Thirty meters which provoke their own fascination at first sight, yet with obvious "family feeling" with the AB Yachts brand and design, always synonymous with style and elegance.  Built using the latest generation of lightweight materials, with breathtaking exterior design, extraordinary performance, and taste and refinement in interior furnishing, all imperatives which have guided this new construction.  Hull and superstructure are painted in two different tones of metallic silver which emphasize the aggressive lines of the yacht which will surely get noticed during the upcoming season.  With its new 100, AB Yachts the sportier line of Fipa Group, which has always been flying the banner of water-jet propulsion will reach a top speed of 52 knots in maximum comfort and stability in navigation which characterize all AB Yachts models. This extraordinary performance will be achieved thanks to three MAN engines producing 1900hp each and MJP waterjets. Stepping on board, one will remain impressed with outstanding interior as well as exterior spaces offered by the yacht.  The main saloon, furnished mainly in light grey tones, is inundated with natural light through large lateral windows, thereby creating magical chromatic contrasts. It is divided in a lounging area with a comfortable sofa and a dining area with a fascinating marble table for eight people.  The helm is finished in dove-grey leather and incorporates all the latest technologies in order to guarantee safe and comfortable navigation.  Going down to the lower deck, the space is divided as follows: two guest cabins with double beds, one VIP cabin and one master cabin, all en-suite with private bathrooms.  The master cabin is located amidships and occupies the full beam of the hull. Spacious and bright, it features a very practical walk-in closet and a finely furnished bathroom with a spacious shower for two people.  The tones chosen for the lower deck also tend towards light grey with delightful touches of color provided by bedside table lamps.  The crew and service area is located at the bow and starts with a modern and spacious galley which is fitted with a comfortable crew lounge. For more privacy, the crew area which is composed of two twin cabins and one bathroom, also has a separate access from the outside deck.  The exterior is designed to make the moments spent in open air very comfortable and exciting. The hidden sport bridge features a second steering position, an L-shaped sofa and two sunbeds. The fore-deck features two coffee tables, a spacious U-shaped sofa and another comfortable sunbed. The aft cockpit, in addition to being fitted with every imaginable electronic domestic equipment available for exterior spaces, features a large dining table, a sofa and yet another spacious sunbed.  The stern garage, elegantly finished, transforms into a "beach house" which further improves the comfort of an already spacious bathing platform.  The AB 100 is designed for those who wish to enjoy cruising on their own terms in maximum comfort and in search of unforgettable experiences that only AB Yachts can provide.
