Construction on NBA player Tony Parker’s yacht, the 35-metre Infinity Nine is proceeding well in anticipation of her March 2021 launch date.
Infinity Nine is the second hull in the Kando110 series built by AvA Yachts in Antalya where Parker has made several visits to with his build advisory team.
Infinity Nine features both an interior and exterior design as well as engineering and naval designers by the team at AvA. The 340 GT motor yacht now has a completed steel hull and aluminium superstructure and the final coating of her hull is now underway.
All major equipment has been delivered and installed and the interior fit out has begun. Sleeping up to 10 guests over five cabins, Infinity Nine has four decks with an accommodation layout that includes a 29-square-metre owner’s suite with full-height windows located on the upper deck aft.
She includes an extended swim platform at the stern, a gym on the upper deck for the basketball star to train in and will also include what AvA calls “radical interior design styling touches” that will be revealed in early 2020.
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 Infinity Nine will be a pleasurable ownership experience for him and his family.”
The Kando110 model has a range of over 6,500 nautical miles and will be equipped with Volvo Penta commercial marine engines, Kohler marine generators, Simrad navigation electronics, Boening monitoring systems, Sleipner bow and stern thrusters and fin stabilisers. The vessel will cruise at 12 knots and reach a top speed of 14 knots.
