AvA yachts launched the first of its Kando series in the Antalaya Free Zone on Friday 19 July. The 34m Kando 110 is the first in the shipyard’s series of contemporary explorer yachts, she has a volume of 340GT and a range of 6400 nautical miles.
The Kando 110 is offered with Volvo-Penta Commercial Marine Engines, a full set of Furuno navigation electronics, Sleipner bow and stern thrusters and fin stabilizers and Kohler Marine generators, which can all be duplicated where necessary. AvA Yachts has chosen simple, reliable and proven systems to reduce risk on long voyages.
“Today is a proud day for myself and the immensely dedicated and highly skilled team of workers at AvA Yachts as Kando begins her life in the water. She is the culmination of a dream, of a vision, and we are honoured and humbled to be able to show her off now to the long-range cruising community worldwide. We have designed, engineered, and meticulously constructed her as a super strong and sturdy ship with a phenomenal commercial equipment level and superyacht interior quality and build. We welcome you on board,” comments Atilla Küçükdiker, chairman and founder of AvA Yachts
The design, styling and engineering was all done by AvA Yachts’ in-house team, featuring four decks with five double guest cabins including a full beam, 27 sqm owner’s suite with full-height windows located at the fore main deck.
Kando is due to head to the Côte d’Azur shortly to be exhibited at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival this September.
Previously focusing on yachts under 30m, AvA yachts has recently started to break into the superyacht market with its first three Kando 110 projects. The Kando 110 that was launched last Friday due for delivery later this year, with the other two projects scheduled for delivery in 2020.
