Elizaveta has been successfully launched on Tuesday, 21 June 2011 by AB Yachts shipyard, part of FIPA GROUP, in the port of Marina di Carrara.
This AB 140 is the latest jewel in the crown of FIPA GROUP to which the AB Yachts shipyard belongs. The criteria and standards which have guided this vessel’s construction have become a point of reference for the entire industry. The AB 140 is a fruit of an ingenious hydrodynamic and technological study whose objective is to achieve exceptional levels of performance with relatively
moderate power, and to guarantee outstanding levels of comfort in navigation even in heavy seas. This endeavor has been realized through an exacting construction process which pays particular attention to weight and its distribution.
The use of advanced composites such as kevlar and carbon fiber, the application of structural bonding agents derived from aeronautics and the use of lightweight materials are just a few innovations introduced by AB Yachts.
Powered by 3 MTU engines producing 2400hp each coupled to MJP waterjets, the vessel achieves a top speed of 46 knots without any vibrations and tiresome noises. All systems aboard have been designed in compliance with RINA Green Star certification requirements, in harmony with the shipyard’s ISO 14001 certification and its philosophy that reducing the environmental impact must be one of the priorities of every modern superyacht. Moreover, this vessel has been designed and built for commercial use and is MCA compliant.
Design & Comfort
Elizaveta was entirely built in Massa. The interior design is elaborate and luxurious, without any compromises with regards to comfort aboard.
The black and gold colors are dominant and combined with rare and very special materials indicate a deep style and design research which makes this vessel truly unique. This is also evident in the interior paneling where canaletto walnut and
olive wood create a relaxing and soothing environment.
The entertainment aboard is guaranteed by the most advanced equipment the market can offer today which puts out a total of 30 000 watts and transforms this AB 140 into a true open-air nightclub on water. The same attention went into the design and installation of navigation systems which are “state of the art” and offer the very best in terms of safety even in adverse weather
