German shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen has just announced the delivery of its largest yacht to date, Aviva.
This superyacht has a length overall of 98.40m, a maximum beam of 17.24m, and an interior volume of approximately 5,000GT.
She features a sleek, elegant exterior profile designed by Reymond Langton Design in collaboration with designer Toby Silverton.
The British design studio was also responsible for the modern yet mystical interior, which conceals a regular, 20m x 10m x 6m padel tennis court.
Andrew Langton explains: “Aviva is intended as a home away from home, and as a result the layout moves away from current trends to maximise the spaces that will be used the most, and create a welcome, inviting atmosphere, with a combination of spacious, open social lounges alongside more intimate and discreet areas for dining, working and relaxation. The interior design features a number of avant-garde architectural elements and details, and uses a rich combination of fabric and leathers in light, warm tones.”
Another special feature of this vessel is her hybrid drive system, which allows Aviva to run at up to 11 knots without the use of the main engines, using electric motors only.
Abeking & Rasmussen comments: “The powerful-looking hull of this vessel is the result of extensive new research and testing that ensure superior seakeeping abilities combined with a 20% decrease in drag. Less engine output is required, fuel consumption is dramatically reduced and the maximum speed is a full 20 knots.”
