Abeking & Rasmussen has announced the launch of its new 68m yacht. Reportedly named Soaring after the majestic soar of an eagle, she is being prepared for sea trials and scheduled for delivery in April.
Bremen-based studio, FOCUS Yacht Design was responsible for Soaring’s interior and exterior. “We are very excited to see how great our concepts for interior and exterior design are coming into being. The shipyard works like clockwork and the opportunity to work on both design spheres allows an integrated and holistic approach. As a result the yacht turned out modern and timeless at the same time”, comments Thomas Mühe, Managing Director of FOCUS Yacht Design.
According to data supplied by The Superyacht Agency, of the total current superyacht order book, Soaring is one of 15 60m-plus projects that have been launched and are due for delivery this year. Five of these projects are by German shipyards.
Abeking & Rasmussen currently has no figures for 2021 due to the postponement of the delivery of project 6507 until 2022.
