AB Yachts, one of the shipyards of Italy’s Fipa Group, recently delivered a pair of sporty vessels that further solidify the company’s position as a leading builder of stylish, high-performance cruisers. The yachts, christened Ecrider and Seafire, are the fourth launches in their respective hull series, the AB 116 and AB 140.

The AB 116 is the yard’s second-largest model, and Ecrider is a shining example. It accommodates nine guests in four cabins, and features an eclectic and minimalist interior from Fipa Group designers. The interior is replete with light-colored woods and fabrics with a variety of organic elements, such as tree-branch-like design accents on furnishings. Ecrider boasts a triple-engine arrangement capable of delivering a maximum speed of 50 knots.

Seafire has an overall length of nearly 140 feet, with a deep-V hull and superstructure made using fiberglass, carbon fiber, and Kevlar. The yacht reaches a staggering top speed of 46 knots under power of three 2,600 hp engines. And while Seafire is configured to sleep as many as 10 guests, the AB 140 model—the largest in the builder’s portfolio—can be configured to accommodate up to 12 guests, with virtually limitless options for interior design and amenities.
