Using materials and technology originally developed for the aerospace industry, the ground-breaking 36-metre AB 116 is both light and strong. With three MTU 16V2000 M93CR engines, each producing 2400 HP, and three MJP waterjets, the AB 116 reached top speeds of up to 45 knots when new offering the almost complete vibration-free experience the Massa-based shipyard is now renowned for. Accommodating up to 12 guests, the AB 116 is completely custom from her interior layout to the exteriors. Large windows create a spacious and airy feel and a pilot house, discreetly separated from the salon, offers 360° visibility of the exterior from any point on the main deck.
Diamond was built by AB Yachts in Viareggio, Italy. It was delivered to an American client on the last day of December in 2012.
AB Yachts was created in 1992 with the goal of setting the standard in the world of pleasure yachting. Since then it has taken distinctive steps in the boat building world.
For the first time we have seen jet drives applied to high performance craft with small dimensions. Specifically researched structural resins have been introduced, collaborating with the most innovative firms in the field of composite materials. Finite element design programs have been applied to optimize the sizes of existing structures.
These are just a few of innovation introduced by AB Yachts, which is now a consolidated enterprise with ample spaces for building and completing yachts.
AB Yachts is a future-oriented shipyard.
Diamond has a four stateroom layout with a GYM that offers pullman berths for availability of a fifth guest stateroom. The master suite is midships and full beam. The king berth, large seating area and enormous bathroom will please even the most demanding. There is a queen berth in one of the guest suites, twins in another and bunks in the kids room. Every stateroom has a private, oversized, bathroom.
Forward of the stateroom space is an atrium that offers a great seating area for private conversations, watching football or simply relaxing.
Forward of the Atrium is the crew area and galley. There are three crew staterooms with heads and showers. The crew has their own dining/lounging area.
On the main deck is the open, airy salon and pilothouse. The pilothouse is equipped with every modern electronic device necessary to take Diamond to amazing adventures. On first inspection you will note the simplicity in the joystick controls for the MJP jets.
The dining salon is just aft of the pilot station. It seats ten. The roof over the dining salon opens offering great views and fresh air.
The salon is aft of the Dining salon divided by a low hutch. Immediately you will observe the large windows on this entire main deck offering great views from any location.
The aft deck is spacious and offers entertainment space and seating as well as a large lounging area.
The transom opens to supply storage for a tender, jetskiis, dive equipment or nearly any water sports gear.
On the main deck forward of the pilothouse and accessed by the wide walk around deck is a comfortable seating area for ten with an umbrella for sun protection. There is a tender garage on the bow for a second tender or more jetskiis.
The flybridge offers sunning, seating and dining options. There is also a pilot station on the flybridge.
Diamond will reach speeds of 48 knots and will cruise at 40 knots.
