Offering a huge interior volume of 340 GT this Kando 110 will be a six-cabin model run by a six-person crew with accommodations and living areas spread over four decks and a light, contemporary interior décor theme chosen by Mr Parker and his wife. A beach club with transformer swimming platform provides a standout feature.

Tony Parker put AvA Yachts through an intense and rigorous selection procedure. His technical and advisory team visited the Antalya-based yard on three different occasions together with Mr Parker’s Captain and senior crew. A full survey of the yard and M/Y Kando currently in build was undertaken on one of these visits by a renowned surveyor appointed by Mr Parker’s team.

Tony Parker is one of the NBA’s outstanding enduring athletes, having won four NBA titles with the San Antonio Spurs and enjoyed 17 seasons with them.

Hull #2 of the Kando 110 will be delivered in time to be exhibited at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2020.
