As one of the most respected and capable yards in the world, Abeking & Rasmussen has proudly announced their largest commission to date. This new yacht, which will be 257 ft. (78.43 m) in length with an overall beam of 40.7 ft. (12.40 m), features many of Abeking & Rasmussen's proprietary technologies.
Reymond & Langton was responsible for the interior and exterior design, while the naval architecture came from A&R's in-house engineering department. Labelled as hull # 6478, it will be endowed with an extremely fine destroyer like entry for low wave resistance and increased seaworthiness, allowing a range of 6,000 nm.
This 5-deck yacht, with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure features an almost stern wide transom hatch with two of the well proven tender launching systems developed by A&R which allow smooth launching and recovering even when under way.
The draft of this yacht has been reduced to 10.5 ft. (3.2 m) allowing access to shallow anchorages, such as in the Bahamas. Propelled by two 1492 kW Caterpillars, speed will be 16.5 knots. The yacht will be built according to Lloyds Register of Shipping and MCA.
Her repeat owner will get an extremely large private area situated on the forward upper deck including office and library. A huge galley has been planned for fast and easy access to the al fresco dining area with sliding doors further aft on the same deck. Six guest cabins are located on main and lower deck. Specialities are a cinema and a sauna. The crew on lower deck will get a number of normally rare single cabins and two spacious mess areas.
