With her delivery drawing closer each day, the new 80-metre Abeking yacht Excellence successfully conducted sea trial testing this week on the North Sea and will now undergo final outfitting in Lemwerder, Germany. Built for an experienced repeat Abeking & Rasmussen client, Excellence is the latest in a long line of custom yachts that carry the same name.Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
Excellence’s modern exterior by Winch Design is characterised by a sharp plumb bow and striking multi-level reflective windows that give the yacht a unique signature as her surrounding changes. The experienced in-house engineering team of Abeking & Rasmussen has succeeded in installing these glass panels without disturbing this unique view through disruptive structures.Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
Inside, guests can look forward to luxuries such as a large swimming pool on the main deck aft, a jacuzzi on the owner’s deck aft and a large water-level tender garage where the yacht’s limousine tenders will be kept. “Excellence represents a huge milestone. A completely unique superstructure, she signifies an innovative and exciting new genre for Winch Design,” said Andrew Winch at the time of the yacht's launch.Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
Following her maiden season in the Mediterranean, Excellence is expected to be showcased at this year’s Monaco and Fort Lauderdale boat shows. Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
