Over the coming months, the outfitting of the yacht will be completed, in time for an expected spring 2017 delivery.

One interesting feature of Aviva (a first for private yachts) is the on board paddle-tennis court which measures 20 metres by 10 metres, with a six-metre height. Evidently, the owner is a passionate player who wanted to be able to enjoy the sport wherever he cruised.
