The prioritisation of an owner’s needs was the impetus that shaped the Kando130XL model – the latest model in AvA Yachts‘ series of long-range contemporary explorer yachts.
Designed and engineered by AvA Yachts’ in-house team, the Kando130XL is a 39-metre motor yacht with a hull designed for both performance and efficiency – a feature evident in its composition of steel and aluminium, and one that complements the model’s range of 6,000 miles at an 11–12-knot cruising speed.
Remaining in line with the distinctive Kando series styling, the Kando130XL offers an extended aft deck designed to be a multi-functional area.
Up to six generously sized cabins are on board and include a main deck VIP suite and upper deck master suite with its own private terrace aft. Both suites have large private dressing rooms.
A fitness room with space for four stations and a free weights area is also positioned inside the VIP suite.
Ample space for the captain and crew is included with a separate captain’s suite on the bridge deck while the crew quarters, housing up to seven members, are on the forward lower deck.
Atilla Küçükdiker, Chairman and Founder of Ava Yachts, says: “The Kando130XL is the culmination of many months of working very closely with a very good customer who knows exactly what he wants.”
“We have accommodated all his wishes and requirements with the Kando130XL and are confident that she will be our next build after the much-awaited launch of Infinity Nine, hull No 2 of the Kando 110 series.”
AvA Yachts has confirmed that the model was hand-built at the brand’s Antalya Freezone facility and has been classed with a Bureau Veritas notation.
