After three years in the making, the 68.2-metre yacht Soaring was officially launched today. Having already rolled her out of her construction shed earlier this week, those at the Abeking & Rasmussen shipyard proceeded with lowering the new superyacht into the water for the first time via syncrolift. Codenamed Project 6506, Soaring will now head for sea trials before being delivered to her owner in April.

The owner’s deck is also home to a library and a private aft deck with lounging areas.

From here, guests will be able to access the water toys and tenders and be assisted by a crew of up to 17.

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.” said Thomas Mühe, Managing Director of Focus Yacht Design.Photo: Tom van Oossanen / Abeking & RasmussenBuilt to the specifications of Lloyd's Class with a size of over 1,500 GT, Soaring and her construction process was managed by Superyacht Technical Services on behalf of the owner. Now available for charter with Ocean Independence, Soaring is set to cruise the Mediterranean, specifically Naples, Sicily, Riviera, Corsica and Sardinia.
