Cantieri di Pisa Akhir Flying Bridge Yachts
Italian shipbuilder Cantieri di Pisa has introduced a lineup of three flybridge yachts with performance to match their sporting designs. Car designer Etienne Salomè penned the exterior design of the three models, dubbed the Akhir, using slated glazing along the sides and a sculpted bow that gives the yachts an aggressive look. A mix of composite and carbon fiber construction keeps weight to a minimum to maximize performance. The Akhir 110 features twin Caterpillar C32 engines rated at 2,400 horsepower each, good for an estimated top speed of 29 knots. The Akhir 122 and 140 will offer a choice of propulsion with speeds of 27-30 knots and a range of 800-900 nautical miles. The interior layout varies between models, but each yacht features fold-out terraces and large windows, along with an open flybridge for fine-weather entertaining.
