The 98m project is the largest yacht built by German shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen. She will soon undergo sea trials in preparation for her delivery in spring 2017. The 98m vessel is the biggest yacht built by the German shipyard. The yard as also reported that it prepared a sophisticated launching system for the launching of the new yacht.
A large pontoon from Norway had been shipped in and moored in front of the new building shed. A special hydraulic platform trailer with 60 wheels combined with a winch moved the 98m yacht slowly but steadily onto the pontoon.
A&B says the design of the new Aviva builds on the success of the existing yacht of the same name. Reymond Langton Design was chosen to develop this project and the team worked together with designer Toby Silverton on the exterior.
They developed a yacht that features a sleek and elegant profile and modern yet mystical interior, which conceals an ocean going first ? a full sized paddle tennis court, reassuring 20m x 10m x6m high.
