"Many of our customers are interested in boats and yachts," explains Hans-Jürgen Abt: "That is why I had long dreamed of transferring our technical and styling skills from vehicle tuning to a boat. And I immediately knew I had hit the right nerve among my employees with this project." The finished project is testament to the passion developed by all those involved. At the BOOT exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany, the STRIDER 11 ABT will be presented to the public for the first time at the SACS stand E21, hall 5, from January 19 to 27. But anyone looking to buy one of these has to hurry up, as the collector's item is strictly limited to ten boats.
The look of the entire vessel – which is already very sporty in the basic version from SACS – immediately reveals the signature features from the Bavarian tuner. Carbon black tubes with a matt black hull and deck produce a highly dynamic aura. An ABT Carbon Look Kit is additionally installed, with numerous design elements made of real CRP. For cars, the ABT Individual departments stands for unique customized solutions. And for this project it also demonstrated its full skillset by developing an interior design that reflects the philosophy of ABT Sportsline in many details, from the color choice to the cushions. Even the engine compartment was specially styled.
Standing in the redesigned cockpit, the wow effect could be even bigger, soon: Our engineers are currently working on an ABT Power boost aimed at around ten per cent more power for the already 740-hp drive. When it comes to acoustics, the STRIDER 11 ABT SPORT MASTER already delivers a brilliant performance – the exhaust sound control definitely turns this sports speedboat into absolute emotional fireworks.
Buyers of this unique vessel can rest assured that every single detail represents style, performance, sports, joie de vivre and speed.
