Having arrived in the Mediterranean this week after her maiden voyage last week, the 68-metre Abeking & Rasmussen superyacht Soaring is gearing up for her first summer season. Here we take a closer look at the German-built yacht as she was captured in action for the first time last week. Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
Designed and built for charter use, Soaring joins the fleet of Zurich-based Ocean Independence. The project was managed by Superyacht Technical Services during the construction who oversaw the implementation of Focus Yacht Design’s vision of an elegant gentleman’s yacht.

The high-volume yacht can accommodate up to 12 guests in six staterooms. The grand master suite is located on the upper aft deck where the suite opens up onto its own private deck with lounge areas. The remaining five guest staterooms are all found on the main deck. Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
Soaring’s exterior decks are spacious and well laid out for hosting larger groups during special occasions or intimate family gatherings for nights at anchor. A Jacuzzi, bar and lounge area on the sundeck makes this one of the best spots on board while a massive swim platform will be the base from where guests can enjoy fun days on the water under Soaring’s professionally-trained watersports team. The adjacent wellness centre is the ideal wind-down area before dinner is served. Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
Expected to cruise the Western Mediterranean this summer, Soaring can reach up to 16.2 knots at full speed and maintains 14 knots for more comfortable overnight passages. Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
