Launch of JIKAN, the new A80 from Advanced Yachts
Pesaro, June 2018
Another 80-footer from Advanced Yachts takes to the water, JIKAN, the elegant Maxi Yacht with the combined sporting performance and luxurious interior comfort that distinguish the style and high design content of our boats.
A project signed by the American naval architects John Reichel and Jim Pugh and the Italian studio Nauta Design of Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino.
JIKAN’s specifications were defined by considering the best possible choices for equipment: a 35-metre mast by Southern Spars with furling boom and carbon rigging, Harken winches, Reckman furler.
A hull as blue as the sea that, from the beginning of August, we will see sailing in the Mediterranean Sea, from the Adriatic to Sardinia, passing through Puglia, Sicily and the Aeolian Islands.
As is always the case, the launch of a boat is always a great celebration, the sense of an accomplished enterprise that has involved craftsmen, architects, engineers, designers and structural engineers to make a beautiful dream come true. The dream of JIKAN’s owner, to whom we all join in celebrating this unforgettable moment.
