Infinity Nine, the second of the Kando series of contemporary explorer yachts from AvA Yachts was delivered to its owner NBA basketball star Tony Parker in early November.
Tony Parker is a French-American former professional basketball player and majority owner of ASVEL Basket in LNB Pro A. Himself the son of a basketball pro, Parker started his career at Paris Basket Racing in the French basketball league before joining the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was selected by the Spurs with the 28th overall pick in the 2001 NBA draft, and quickly became their starting point guard. Parker won four NBA championships (2003, 2005, 2007, and 2014), all of which were with the Spurs.
Atilla Küçükdiker the Chairman and Founder of AvA Yachts said “It is a proud and happy day that we as AvA Yachts team have delivered Infinity Nine! We describe our Kando series yachts as contemporary explorers and Infinity Nine really is a superb demonstration of both contemporary style, inside and out, and superb exploration potential with class-beating efficiency, huge storage and interior volume, duplicated systems for all key equipment and machinery, and an immensely strong and rugged hull with steel thickness no other builders come close to. We are sad to say farewell but Bon Voyage Infinity Nine. May Fair winds and following seas be with you”.
Infinity Nine is an extended Kando110 model constructed with a high-grade steel hull and aluminium superstructure and is characterised by contemporary styling and full custom interior with a six stateroom interior and upper deck master with its own private deck. With a huge volume of 333 GT and a range of well over 6,500 nautical miles the plans for Infinity Nine are well and truly global.
Infinity Nine is currently enroute to Monaco where she will be berthed in Port Hercules and is being offered for charter bookings.
