Tony Parker was recently seen at the shipyard, by AvA Yachts, overseeing the construction of his future M/Y Infinty Nine. This yacht is 35 meters long and is the second in the Kando series. What kind of yacht is it? A boat for those who want to stay at sea as much as possible: with a range of 6500 miles and a pure explorer style this 35 meters is designed for very long navigations. And in total comfort.
The construction is proceeding at full pace with the hull and superstructure completed and the final coating of the hull already started. Under current forecasts, the boat will be ready by the end of March 2021. Tony Parker was accompanied to the shipyard by a team of consultants who were pleased with the work done so far. What will he do once he has the boat? Given the type of yacht and its configuration, it will likely be used for long sailings.
Let’s get on board: we pass through an extended aft platform and a full-beam cockpit, complete with floor to ceiling windows. This ensures maximum light on board. Tony Parker, despite having officially retired from the NBA, probably doesn’t want to give up his physical fitness, even when he’s onboard. That’s why a gym will be set up on the upper deck of the boat.
Features four decks with a five-double guest cabin layout with an extra-large 29-square-foot master stateroom with floor-to-ceiling windows located on the upper deck aft.
The main deck saloon is a spacious 45-square-foot salon with a dining area that boasts a full-beam layout with large windows. Both the main deck salon and owner’s suite feature polished stainless steel framed automatic sliding doors.
M/Y Infinity Nine is equipped with Volvo-Penta Commercial Marine engines, Kohler Marine generators, a full set of Simrad navigation electronics, Boening monitoring systems, Sleipner bow thruster, and fin stabilizers, and a wide range of other top-of-the-line equipment. On-board redundancy combined with simple, reliable, and proven systems make for a safe boat for long-range sailing.
Her outdoor areas are designed for relaxation and outdoor entertaining, with a wide range of deck areas offered. M/Y Infinity Nine offers a partially covered flybridge hot tub and large outdoor seating and sunbathing areas on all decks.
In his career-long tenure, he was one of the “Big Three” of Gregg Popovich’s San Antonio Spurs, along with Argentina’s Manu Ginobli and “Big Fundamental,” Tim Duncan. He was NBA champion four times, always with the Spurs, also obtaining the title of MVP, i.e. best player, of the Finals in 2007. At the time of his retirement from the scene, the San Antonio Spurs decided to retire his jersey, number 9.
