AB Yachts 116 Coming To Hong Kong
Published: Tuesday, 07 January 2014
Hull number one of the Guido De Groot designed, AB Yachts 116 series is expected to arrive in Hong Kong this month. The metallic grey superyacht combines a slender, smooth exterior look with a bright, airy and contemporary interior style.
Using materials and technology originally developed for the aerospace industry, the ground-breaking 36-metre vessel is both light and strong allowing previously impossible design and engineering innovations.
With three MTU engines each producing 2400 HP, and three MJP waterjets, the AB 116 reaches a top speed of 50 knots and cruises at 44 knots, delivering the almost completely vibration-free ride for which the Massa-based shipyard is renowned.
