2007: Aviva is another of this year's fine major launches, this time from Abeking & Rasmussen. She left the Lemwerder yard in Germany in May 2007. Seen here yesterday on her maiden cruise to the Med, in St Tropez. The port was heaving with dozens of Mangustas, Leopards and ISAs for the annual Rodriguez Group show.
Aviva has an unusual "knife" bow, which allows for a larger superstructure and internal volume, and greater speed and fuel efficiencies.
