Viareggio – May 10, 2024


After the success of last year, Next Yacht Group opened its doors again this year to a group of students from the Artiglio State Nautical Technical Institute.


Today, 30 young students, accompanied by the members of the Institute, had the opportunity to learn more about a nautical excellence, Next Yacht Group, owner of the historic Maiora and AB Yachts brands, visiting the new headquarters in Viareggio and meeting with the Group's managers. After an introduction about the Group, the visit moved first to the dock and then to one of the production sites where students were able to experience the process of outfitting boats in the various stages of construction.

Finally, an adrenaline-fueled sea trial at over 55 knots aboard the latest unit of AB 80, the 25-meter vessel of the group's sportiest brand, where the students had the opportunity to savor the unique naval performance and the appeal of the styling and functional solutions that make the AB Yachts brand a leader in this market segment.


Next Yacht Group deeply believes in the relationship with schools, technical institutes and universities in the area for the identification of young talents and the development of professionalism increasingly oriented to the evolutions of the nautical industry. That is precisely why today's visit was so important.

And seeing the excitement in the eyes of future generations was definitely the biggest achievement.
