    THIS is boat porn. Gotta hand it to the Italians, they do have a flair for it. Neve mind the fact that the electrical is "interesting" and all that. (And whoever prepped those beds for film needs to be shot) Aside from that.... enjoy. (Full screen and volume UP recommended......)

    We're headed to Viareggio in early February. Return trip. Need for speed compels.

    Eye catching exterior and looks to be a real runner with good looks.

    Underwhelming interior on this example but that can be easily changed.

    A couple of years ago we chartered for three days a larger AB, not one of their faster ones but still nice to go from place to place at 35 knots. When we were there last year we got to go for brief runs on a couple.

    The performance is just incredible. They've been doing what they do for a long time and doing it well. Some of their interiors are a bit strange to us. Almost Scandinavian. Most are very light and open.

    For the video, probably 50 to 55 knots. Maximum speed on the 100 is shown as 54 knots with cruising speed of 45 knots. That's what I've seen on that specific boat as well. Their 92' is slightly faster with optional engines.

    I vote for the 140. If you want to go small the 116 is fine. The 140 will be too slow for your need for speed.
    The interior is more appealing to me in the darker woods like shown in the 140.
