According to the yard, construction is going on at full speed. The hull and superstructure are now complete with the final coating of the hull well underway. 

All major equipment has been delivered and installed and the interior fitout has begun in earnest.

An extended swim platform at the stern, a full-beam master with floor-to-ceiling windows, a gym on the upper deck and some radical interior design styling touches are features which will make this yacht a standout launch of 2021.

Delivery of M/Y Infinity Nine has now been scheduled for the end of March 2021.

Atilla Küçükdiker, chairman and founder of AvA Yachts, said, “It is always a pleasure to welcome Mr Parker and his team to the yard and for us to be able to show in-process the detail, care, attention and quality that is the hallmark of an AvA Yachts yacht. We are proud and confident that Mr Parker will have the yacht of his dreams and that M/Y Infinity Nine will be a pleasurable ownership experience for him and his family.
