Turkish yacht builder Ava Yachts has announced this week that it has secured the build of the second hull in its Kando 110 series with the international basketball star, Tony Parker.

At 35 metres long and stretching 7.8 metres across, the second unit in this line will also be built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure and encompass 340 GT across its internal volume. IN terms of performance, the Kando 110 will be able to cover a range of 6,400 nm cruising at 10 knots thanks to its two economical Volvo Penta 650hp engines. Photo: AvA Yachts
