Gruppo FIPA has launched the latest yacht from its brand AB Yachts, the 24-metre AB 80. Designed by the Tuscany-based studio Acube Design, the new yacht was made for a 'demanding shipowner' who intends on operating the boat himself.

Designed in-house, her custom interior design includes an open-plan main-deck saloon with 360-degree views and the outdoors easily accessible. With an impressive maximum speed of over 59 knots, the new yacht has a hefty propulsion system with three MJP waterjets coupled with three MAN v-12 engines of 2,000 hp each.AB 80 yacht exterior designPhoto: AB YachtsAB 80 yacht exterior designPhoto: AB Yachts“The shipyard has been working very closely with the shipowner in order to make all his requests and needs come true, as it happens in any project we work on. We take care of every single detail and the final beauty that emerges is the result of the firm commitment of craftsmen that work hard as our ancestors did with wood and marbles in our own lands," says Francesco Guidetti, President, Gruppo FIPA.

The new AB 80 is the second of the five vessels scheduled to be launched by Gruppo FIPA for the 2020 season.
