Her “Excellence” – launching of a new megayacht
In the very early morning hours this Saturday Abeking & Rasmussen launched a brand new member of their family.
It was a magical moment for her well experienced Owner when the first rays of sun and reflections of the sky could be seen in the large glass panels surrounded by her stylish curves drawn by the re-known studio Winch Design. The team at Winch Design have dreamt up a superstructure so unique that she promises to be unlike anything that has ever come before. Her striking and angular reverse bow cuts assertively through the ocean waters, offering a silhouette comparable to a spaceship. Her exterior lines draw the eye up to the bridge and owner’s decks which are surrounded on all sides by curved floor-to-ceiling mirrored glass. The experienced in-house engineering team of Abeking & Rasmussen has succeeded in installing these glass panels without disturbing this unique view through disruptive structures. Providing the perfect opportunity for indulgent relaxation, she features a swimming pool and platform, as well as jacuzzi and sprawling beach club and impressive limousine tenders. Excellence smashes the mould and promises to turn as many heads in 20 years’ time as she does today. With her striking bow and her visionary, industry disrupting layout, Excellence brings forward a new era for superyacht design. Sea trails along the river Weser and out on the North Sea will commence shortly while the outfitting program of the yacht continues to ensure that her “Excellence” will be delivered to her Owner in summer 2019.“We are very proud of this extraordinary yacht and our exceptional workforce, who mastered all requirements bravely. Never before have glass panels been installed in these dimensions. The unusual lines also repeatedly presented employees with major challenges. Now we have developed and successfully finished this masterpiece and can hardly wait for the sea trials” said Hans Schaedla – CEO of Abeking & Rasmussen. “Excellence represents a huge milestone. A completely unique superstructure, she signifies an innovative and exciting new genre for Winch Design” said Andrew Winch.
