Keel of 118m Abeking project 6507 flagship laid in Hamburg

Construction on the 118-metre flagship Abeking project 6507 is underway in Hamburg where Abeking & Rasmussen celebrated the project’s keel-laying milestone this week in the presence of the project’s owners, representatives, designers and shipyard staff during a private ceremony. The vessel is the largest yacht ever to be built by the German shipyard, outweighing the 98.4-metre motor yacht Aviva from 2017. Abeking 6507 project keel layingPhoto: Abeking & Rasmussen

The project is the design work of Joseph Dirand Architecture while owner representative Cornelsen & Partner oversees the project on behalf of the client. Designed for adventure, project 6507 will feature a host of tenders, watersport toys and a submarine. A special Neptune Lounge and large pool are just some of the design highlights that guests will have to look forward to. 

“We, together with all parties, are proud to have the opportunity to build this fantastic superyacht,” commented Abeking & Rasmussen.

Working closely with Photon from Berlin, a new laser welding process has been developed that will ensure a smooth surface whilst reducing retouching required later in the build process. One of many innovations as part of the project, this will deliver a premium shell plating which will form a crucial part of the ultimate finished product.
