  1. 80-meter "Excellence" By Abeking & Rasmussen
    German custom superyacht builder Abeking & Rasmussen (A&R) has built many superyachts making up a stunning portfolio but their latest delivery perhaps is the epitome of "Excellence". The 80-meter superyacht was known as project Intensity or hull 6505 while under construction. Both A&R and Winch Design can be proud of the unique craft they created with their respective contributions. If you have been following, Excellence is now the sixth superyacht to bear this name for the same owner.
  2. Excellence made her international debut at the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) and will now make her American debut at the 2019 edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) at the end of this month. This superyacht will be available for charter like many of her past namesake 'sisters'. Burgess has offered a glimpse into the stunning deck and interior areas onboard that charter guests will get to enjoy when booking a 1.1 million USD charter this Caribbean winter season. Below is the first glimpse into the interior and it showcases the main saloon and formal dining areas of this superyacht. Sophistication and elegance are apt descriptors of the interior throughout. It is a good balance between earthy, cleanliness of white and creams, depth through darker timbers and stains and vibrancy via pops of colour.
  3. This space perhaps will see alot of use with charter guests and although it is an al-fresco and secondary dining area guests will want to be outside to enjoy the air and vistas provided where ever the yacht is at anchor; even though outside the area still has a formal nature to it. Glass wind panels partially shield the dining area while keeping the view unobstructed. A splattering of deck furniture together with built-in side seating create different conversation zones.
  4. Among the dedicated pampering facilities onboard, the spa and beauty salon is a must-visit for self-indulgence. A sauna with a view and a wellness area will get you ready for all aspects of your charter. Whether it is a wind-up or wind-down session the spa facility will be your best friend onboard. Besides the functionality of the room, the design that went into it is also commendable.
  5. Another well put-together space is the cinema and it is a tiered floor plan. It is on the darker side of the palette with rich dark cobalt popping-off mid-toned timber and leathers. Relaxation is the aim when on charter and this is one of the many ways to indulge onboard superyacht Excellence.
  6. Perhaps the ultimate place for seclusion and time alone is in your own cabin. The cabin below is the master suite belonging to the owner of Excellence. Perched on the forward-most end of the upper deck the owner's domain in fact stretches the entire length of this deck, that's right the principal has his own deck not just a suite. The suite aspect of the deck is fronted by floor-to-ceiling glass that provide unobstructed views forward and abeam. The decor follows the general theme throughout the boat and with a large bed and custom-made sunburst headboard a comfortable night's rest is always assured. Outside on the aft end of this deck the owner has a jacuzzi and ample deck space.
  7. One of the most striking features about this yacht is the extensive use of glass throughout the superstructure. Some very large panels have been hung to the exterior and in the case of the two uppermost decks, they are clad in single pieces that span two those two decks! Towards the midships area of the superstructure is the atrium and this is a three-deck high masterpiece. The glass technology employed resulted in this atrium design being realized.
  8. The main pool is on the aft end of the main deck and has a swim-up bar. It is a great place to unwind while overlooking the transom and taking in the sights and sounds of a secluded bay. Onboard there are six cabins for guests sleeping up to twelve. All six of these cabins are located on the main deck. The other suite is the owner's domain on the upper deck forward. The 2019-built vessel has a top speed of 16.8-knots thanks to twin MTU diesel engines. They burn around 746 LT per hour at cruising speed (14-knots). Two tenders are for guest use, one of them being a 9.8-meter Hodgdon Limo. The other is an 8-meter open-style tender by the same company. A rescue Zodiac 450 is also stored.
