Project: AB Yachts AB 80

AB Yachts present the new AB 80 project, a 24 meter super sport yacht designed by Gruppo Fipa together with Acube Design from Tuscany, a rather new design firm founded by Alessio Benassini and Alessio Merciadri in 2014.  The AB 80 captures important stylistic theme of the Italian boat builder, see curved fins on top of the hard top, and sea water jets propulsion as all AB Yachts models from 50 up to 145 produced thus far.  The AB 80 will feature an accommodation layout of four double guest cabins, with space for two crew in a cabin.  As the choice of jet propulsion makes one understand, performance and power have been always very important themes to AB Yachts, and the AB 80 hull one which is under going final sea trials and delivery tests as this post is out, fits in line with the high standards the Viareggio sport yacht builder is known for. Powered by triple Man 2000hp with MJP water jets hull one of the AB 80 has reached top speeds up to 59 knots, which is five knots more then the estimated 55 knots from calculated simulations.  Impressive to say the least!
