Abeking & Rasmussen launch new 25m SWATH superyacht

Written by Gemma Fottles

Following the launch of the 72.5 metre superyacht Cloudbreak last week, German shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen has launched another superyacht, this time something completely different. The 25 metre SWATH superyacht is, as yet, only known by her hull number 6500. She is the second SWATH yacht to be launched by the yard, following the launch of the 41 metre Silver Cloud in 2008.

SWATH stands for โ€˜Small Waterplane Area Twin Hullโ€™. The concept is based on two submarine hulls, completely submerged below the water surface, which are connected to the yacht by two narrow struts. Silver Cloud marked Abeking & Rasmussenโ€™s first use of the SWATH design on a yacht, which until this point had only been used on military and commercial vessels.

More details on the new 25 metre SWATH vessel will be released as and when it becomes available.
