SuperYachtTimes.com was invited on board the Fipa Group’s largest build to date, the AB 145 Fast & Furious, to experience the yacht’s exhilirating power, performance and level of luxury first hand at the Cannes Yachting Festival, where she is currently on display.
Fitted with tripple MJP waterjets, Fast & Furious certainly lives up to her name, comfortably reaching 35+ knots even in disturbed sea states. The accelaration is gradual and once running at top speed, one hardly notice the world buzzing past at 40 knots from the interior. The lack of vibration and noise at this speed is also remarkable, and apart from a few high impact creaks, the interior is as a pleasant place to be as when at anchor.
Her Seakeeper gyro stabilisers do a great job keeping this 45m poised at anchor, and even more so when underway. Total control of all on board systems is possible at a touch of a button from the bridge.
Yet to be fitted with a tender and watersports equipment of the client’s choice, she feautures a large upward opening transom door which reveals a spacious garage suited for a large tender and jets skis.
