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.
