The AB Yachts 140 motor yacht brings together all of the key features of the AB ethos, in the largest yacht we have built so far. But it will soon lose this top position as a 60-metre model is already being designed, following the same conceptual theme, of course”. Arnaboldi goes on to tell us, “Initially I wasn’t sure about the colour, but I now admit I was wrong. When I saw the boat in the water I immediately changed my mind. This summer I could practically track its course around Sardinia and other ports by the phone calls I received from people wanting to know more. It was a real success.
People were also impressed by the external styling, which was a joint effort by AB Yachts and Interin Srl, who also designed all of the motor yacht OxyZen’s interiors. The final result is definitely high-impact. The other three AB 140’ vessels under construction are also eye-catching, and unlike this one they have a fly deck. The interiors of the second of these three were designed by the Guido De Groot studio in the Netherlands, while the yard’s internal department of designers designed the others.
The main difference in the fly version is that there is an open control bridge; so the opening roof consists of just one element instead of the three found on OxyZen; consequently, the ward room partially opens up. The inside layout is basically the same, although various custom arrangements mean that Owner’s can choose whether to have three or four cabins”.
