Abeking & Rasmussen launches 74m masterpiece
The brand new 74m megayacht ELANDESS emerged majestically today from Abeking & Rasmussen's construction shed in Lemwerder.
Several tow tractors carefully pulled the 2,065 GT new build out of her shed and onto the syncrolift before she was finally lowered into the water for the first time.
Celebrated design studio Eidsgaard was commissioned by the experienced Owners to bring their very particular vision to life. Entrusted with masterminding both the new build's exterior and interior design, Peter Eidsgaard and his talented team have created a uniquely distincive vessel brimming with innovative design characteristics and inspired aesthetics.
The brief was for a modern and spacious yacht with large lounging areas for enjoying both informal family time and entertaining on social occasions. Consequently, ELANDESS offers a plethora of spectacular communal spaces, ranging from the Nemo lounge below the waterline to the 8m x 2,5m swimming pool on the very expansive sundeck. Remarkably, the yacht's contemporary and sporty exterior profile belies her wide open plan spaces and flexibile living areas which feature large floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows.
Sea trials along the River Weser and along the North Sea coast will commence shortly while the outfitting programme of the yacht continues apace to ensure this Abeking & Rasmussen masterpiece is ready for her delivery to her Owners for summer 2018.
