The 98.4-me­tre Aviva – the largest yacht built by Abek­ing & Ras­mussen – left the Ger­man yard on her maiden cruise in May. She’s the fourth yacht launched un­der the Aviva name. The strik­ing ex­te­rior is the work of Rey­mond Lang­ton De­sign (which cre­ated the pre­vi­ous Aviva at Abek­ing & Ras­mussen a decade ago), in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Toby Sil­ver­ton. The blue hull and ver­ti­cal bow are eye-catch­ing fea­tures, with the shaped el­e­ments of the su­per­struc­ture in metal­lic sil­ver cre­at­ing a strong con­trast of light and shade, and tak­ing some styling cues from au­to­mo­tive de­sign. The yard says the pow­er­ful-look­ing hull is the re­sult of ex­ten­sive re­search and test­ing to en­sure su­pe­rior sea­keep­ing, as well as a 20% re­duc­tion in drag and ben­e­fits for fuel con­sump­tion. Her top speed is 20 knots, while a hy­brid drive-sys­tem al­lows her to run at up to 11 knots with­out main en­gines. Con­tact abek­
