Gruppo FIPA launched a new model of its AB YACHTS line—AB 80, the second of the five vessels scheduled to be launched for the 2020 season. It is an innovative project that with waterjet propulsion. This 84-footer is the result of advanced technology, as a distinctive feature of the à carreaux brand, and a unique design that gives this new model an elegant, sexy and sporty profile: AB calls the boat a Formula One car of the seas.


The AB 80 is targeted to the American “Owner-Operator” philosophy and can be easily used for both a family cruise and as a luxurious day-boat with impressive performances and absolute comfort.

This new fast cruiser is versatile: The Bahamas would be easy to reach in less than half-an-hour from downtown Miami, or you can get to St Tropez in just 30 minutes from Nice airport, or to Sag Harbour or the Hamptons in one hour and a half from Manhattan, or leave the office at work in Barcelona to get to Mallorca right on time for having a business lunch or playing an exclusive golf match.

With a maximum speed of 59+ knots, its planing hull is like a blade that cuts the water keeping total control, safety and maneuvrability even at high speed without sacrificing comfort and safety at sea in all conditions.

On the main deck, the salon is encircled 360° by natural light and is directly connected to the aft cockpit. The yacht accommodates 8 guests and 2 crew members with a total of four cabins.


The propulsion system provides 3 MJP waterjets coupled with 3 MAN v-12 engines of 2000hp each.

The interior spaces, as in all the boats of Gruppo FIPA – MAIORA, AB YACHTS and CBI NAVI – are entirely customized and one-of-a-kind, using high-quality and carefully-selected materials.

The shipyard “– Francesco Guidetti, president of Gruppo FIPA, says, “has been working very closely with the shipowner in order to make all his requests and needs come true, as it happens in any project we work on. We take care of every single detail and the final beauty that emerges is the result of the firm commitment of craftsmen that work hard like our ancestors did with wood and marbles in our own land.”
