AB Yachts just recently launched their latest project, the undeniably sportive AB 116 named Ecrider. Unmistakably a powerboat pur sang, this vessel surely is a textbook example of sportive strength. With an length of 36.25 metre, she combines Italian elegance with an unapologetically light and modern sense of style. Her sharp lines, sleek silhouette and dark grey and silver exterior colour palette, Ecrider's look is one of strength, sportive aggression and adrenaline.
With Ecrider, Italian AB Yachts, part of the Fipa Group, presents a brand new sportive poweryacht to the industry, the fourth hull delivered from their yard. Completely designed in-house, she combines a slender and smooth exterior look with bright, airy and contemporary interior style.
Primarily designed with clean white and light greys tones, and minimalistic shapes, Ecrider's main saloon is framed with big, panoramic windows. These allow the flow of natural light, give guests those wonderfully lush vista views and create a pleasant sense of openness throughout. However, what truly sets Ecrider apart from other superyachts in her class, are her general arrangement and her great flybridge.
Upon boarding, one is welcomed on an open, spacious and panoramic aft deck. Here Ecrider's first al fresco dining area is combined with a great lounging area and a set of big sun pads aft. With the big swimming platform conveniently nearby, this whole area is a central hub for guest entertainment; a complete space for day to night lounging, relaxing and a wide range of social occasions. Fore, a Portuguese deck, with big U-shaped cockpit and a set of large sun pads, offers that sumptuous feeling of privacy and utter relaxation, all framed with impressive vista views, a wonderfully relaxing environment for guests to enjoy.
Inside, the main saloon is a spacious and open room with an airy lounge and elegant dining area. Designed in a bright, contemporary style with modern shapes and a fresh, light colour palette with ample of white, this open plan saloon has a vibrant and cool ambiance that will surely appeal to Ecrider's guests. The lounge, with a big, U-shaped sofa, is cozy and inviting, and the dining area boasts a delightfully edgy and minimalistic design. Here, the ceiling can dramatically open up to transform the area into an open-air space for romantic dining under the stars. All framed by panoramic windows, the main saloon is a cool and contemporary space that combines minimalistic design with a fresh and vibrant atmosphere.
With regards to guest accommodations, Ecrider offers a collection of wonderful suites to her guests, all situated belowdecks. With one master suite, a large VIP and two twins, ample comfort and luxury is available for all. With every suite equally well appointed, designed in a slighty warmer, more intimate rendition of the main saloon's style, all staterooms are cozy, vibrant and luxurious. Each suite consists of a spacious stateroom with ample storage space and a luxury en suite.
The master offers the most spacious accommodation, with a full beam layout designed in a refined style of modern, luxurious elegance. The master stateroom, which has an office area as well as an inviting L-shaped lounge, combines elegant floral patterns and natural textures with modern shapes and a soft lighting scheme. All this results in subtle yet rich personality. Like all guest en suites, the master bath adds a dramatic touch by mixing the light colour scheme with black sinks, ceilings and floors.
Additionally to the lush guest suites, the lower deck offers a intimate, light and spacious television and cinema room for guests.
Completing Ecrider's great collections of guest areas, the flybridge offers a surprising amount of space and doesn't take away from the vessel's slender silhouette at all. With large sun pads, a second al fresco dining area and a steering station for easy maneuvering, the flybridge is arguably one of this superyacht's greatest features.
Overall, Ecrider is a superyacht of strength, contemporary style and lightness, combining a cool onboard ambiance with plenty of luxury and great style. She presents her guests with a wonderful sense of airy freedom which, combined with her contemporary Italian elegance, will undoubtedly appeal to all.
