YPI Brokerage, the Sales & New Construction division of Yachting Partners International (YPI Group) announces its latest exclusive signing for sale, and the second with AB yachts: the stunning AB 116.
Using materials and technology originally developed for the aerospace industry, the ground-breaking 36-metre AB 116 is both light and strong. With three MTU 16V2000 M93CR engines, each producing 2400 HP, and three MJP waterjets, the AB 116 reaches top speeds of up to 50 knots offering the almost complete vibration-free experience the Massa-based shipyard is now renowned for.
“She cruises at a feisty 44 knots,” explains YPI Broker Will Allen. “But onboard, guests are completely isolated from the exterior. The sensation you get is one of flying over the water rather than actually touching it.”
The AB 116 embodies AB Yachts’ concept style for sport power yachts and offers modular propulsion possibilities giving owners the choice of sailing with three, two or even just one of the engines. “She is the result of a lot of thought and planning by the AB designers,” says YPI Senior Consultant Eric Althaus. “They have come up with a yacht able to navigate all sea conditions at high speed without giving up any of the comfort and space that is so much a part of AB Yachts’ DNA.” Accommodating up to 10 guests with a unique 5-cabin layout, the AB 116 is completely custom from her interior layout to the exteriors. Large windows create a spacious and airy feel and a pilot house, discreetly separated from the salon, offers 360° visibility of the exterior from any point on the main deck.
“What really sets the AB 116 apart from other yachts in this class,” says Will, “is her enormous flybridge. Equipped with every imaginable refinement, it offers large sunpads, al fresco dining and a steering station for easy port manoeuvrability.”
The AB 116 also offers two garages – one on the stern and one on the bow - with storage for two tenders of 5.4 and 4.5 metres and two jet-skis.
“She will be ready for delivery in just 5-months,” says Eric. “The AB 116 is a wonderful opportunity for serious buyers looking for speed and comfort, to enjoy a brand new yacht at a very fair price in time for the up-coming summer season.”
The new-build AB 116 is available exclusively through YPI Brokerage for delivery in June 2011 at an Asking Price of €13,150,000.
