Abeking & Rasmussen’s superyacht Aviva has been awarded the Judges’ Special Award at this year´s World Superyacht Awards, which took place in Florence on May 19th.
“Aviva is the result of highest workmanship and best communication between the owner and his team during the short building period of less than three years. Together with Toby Silverton and Reymond Langton Design we are very proud to win this important award.” said Till von Krause – Sales Director Yacht.
Aviva was designed by design studio Reymond Langton, which closely collaborated with Toby Silverton on the vessel’s exterior styling.
The yacht had also recently been awarded Best Lifestyle Feature Design at the Boat International Design & Innovation Awards. One of the most remarkable lifestyle features onboard Aviva: a full-size padel tennis court (20m x 10m x 6.65m) inside, stretching over two decks.
“It is not only a lifestyle change for the owner but also to the crew as this is also the largest gym of any yacht. The crew is encouraged to play with the owner and guests, and when the court is not in use for padel the net can be removed and the crew plays football and use other exercise equipment in the space, it is, after all, a sports hall,” confirms Reymond Langton Design.
With this giant sports ground, Abeking & Rasmussen has managed to live up a new trend. More and more customers are considering the importance of travelling around without compromising with the need of sports activity and practising.
