A launch and a sale for AB Yachts, a Next Yacht Group brand.



Another unit in the AB 100 series has just been launched. Delivering a speed of over 50 knots, this 30-metre craft is one of the fastest luxury yachts on the market.


The AB 100 offers her guests the thrill of speeding over the sea almost without realizing it, enjoying maximum comfort and with unmatched efficiency. Behind such outstanding performances stand a construction competence perfected in over 30 years' experience; cutting-edge technological solutions in propulsion, stabilization, trim control and seakeeping; a painstaking care for details; and a modular configuration allowing to meet the needs and wishes of owners that are looking for one-of-a-kind, distinctive products.


This unit offers a range of distinctive solutions that make the most of onboard spaces. The concealed sliding door connects the aft cockpit and the salon, to create one single, generous open space, free of obstacles and pervaded by the natural light that shines through the floor-to-ceiling glazed surfaces, offering a 360-degree breathtaking view and a constant contact with the sea. The stern hosts a fully-equipped, ready-to-enjoy beach area, featuring an exclusive, innovative system specially designed by the shipyard to launch and haul tenders, jet skis, and water toys. All onboard areas, both indoor and outdoor, are extremely versatile, to be fully enjoyed by guests and reflect their lifestyle and preferences. 


The yacht will soon weight anchor for her first cruise in the Mediterranean Sea.


Today, AB Yachts is the only true option for owners wishing to create an incomparable jewel, impossible to imitate, and to safely and efficiently experience the pleasure of high performances in the utmost safety and efficiency, discovering more in less time. The proof is in numbers: five units between 80 and 120 feet launched - or bound to be launched - in 2022; three units between 100 and 120 feet sold in four months, recently joined by a fourth one, thanks to the sale of yet another AB 80.


“For us - comments Next Yacht Group's CEO Gennaro Candida De Matteo - yachts are enablers of emotions: the adrenaline triggered by speeding; that sense of feeling safe even in the most extreme manoeuvres; the exhilaration of exceeding 50 knots or taking sharp turns without almost noticing it; and the wellbeing one perceives when surrounded by our bright, welcoming interiors. Our sales results confirm that our ability to stir emotions is recognised all over the world, in addition, it goes without saying, to our construction and technological leadership”.



With her 25.40 metres in length, the AB 80 is the entry level in her range, characterised by a sporty, captivating design and state-of-the-art technologies.


She can glide on the water at a maximum speed of over 55 knots and a cruising speed of 45, she can cruise shallow waters, she delivers impressive performances and manoeuvrability, she keeps consumption extremely low thanks to her reduced displacement and efficient construction approach, and she can be easily driven by her Owner, who can enjoy a long cruise with his family or use her as a luxury day-boat. And she still falls within the category below 24 metres.


Both exteriors and interiors have been custom-designed and fitted out exclusively to the taste and requirements of her Owner by the Group's Centro Stile.


The AB 80 is scheduled for delivery at the end of 2022, ready to immediately leave dock and reach the United States.
