Some emotions cannot be described, they can only be felt.
AB 140 is the outcome of an ingenious hydrodynamic and technological study whose aim was to obtain extraordinary performances with modest power, yet ensuring an excellent comfort of navigation also in rough seas. All of this has come true thanks to a careful construction work, focusing on weights and their distribution, with use of advanced composites like Kevlar and Carbon. The results are extraordinary: AB 140 reaches 46 knots of maximum speed and 43 knots of cruising speed (half loaded) with only 7800 horse power, thanks to three engines of 2600 HP coupled with three waterjets. But what is even more interesting is the outcome obtained with only two working engines, that is with only 5200 HP: 34.5 knots of maximum speed and 32 knots of cruising speed, and relying on 23.000 liters of fuel capacity, AB 140 has a range of 950 miles with manifest benets for economy and pollution. As a matter of fact, if compared with traditional motoryachts, AB 140 oers a 60% cosumption reduction. Each AB 140 can be completely custom made, in fact it is a “custom yacht” in every respect. The height of interiors is never lower than 2,4 meters, the quality of furnishings and the logic of arrangement of spaces make it an incomparable yacht. On the outside privacy reigns, with four areas that are well distinct and separate, equipped with accessories and unique services that make cruises fantastic and really special.
The path that lead Fipa Group to gain a primary position in the panorama of the international pleasure yachting, began in the 1970’s with production of the first fiberglass motoryachts, a material that was still too innovative for most of the builders at that period. In the 1980’s Fipa Italiana Yachts obtained the control of the Maiora brand, that was already symbol of amazing workmanship in craft, that found in the Fipa shipyards a reach soil for development and of a meticulous search for perfection. At the beginning of 1990’s, Fipa acquired the historic shipyard Intermare located in the Darsena of Viareggio, a town where sea and yachting speak the same language. This allowed the Group to offer specialized mechanical assistance, stainless steel works, teak works and docks that are at the shipyards’ disposal to carry out final trials before delivery, maintenance works and refitting in general. In the new millennium, Fipa Group recognizes in the shipyard AB Yachts – a leader in the planning and construction of fast open motoryachts with waterjets – one of the natural elements of its range. With this acquisition, they begin renewal of models and widen production.
In the first years of the third millennium the market shows to demand bigger yachts that are more and more customized, for this reason Fipa Group begins to produce motoryachts from 30 to 45 meters in the new facilities in Massa, where thanks to important covered and uncovered areas they reach an annual production of approximately 40 units, also supported by the purchase of production areas that are located directly on the sea in the port of Viareggio. Another important step in the development of the group was the acquisition of CBI Navi shipyard in 2005, that allowed to inherit the skills of metal yachts building and to increase the space in the Viareggio production areas with direct access to the sea. The passion in construction of motoryachts has always pushed the Fipa Group to collect – and always win – the challenges for the production of bigger and bigger yachts for more and more demanding clients. At the moment Fipa Group can offer custom and semicustom fiberglass motoryachts up to 60 mt, steel and light alloy motoryachts up to 80 mt, open motoryachts up to 60 mt, and all services that yachting always needs, with the highest quality standards.
