Cloudbreak, the 72.5m explorer yacht from Abeking & Rasmussen, was delivered to her owner this weekend following her final sea trials, in an explosive evening ceremony with fireworks.
Following the celebration at the Abeking & Rasmussen shipyard facility in Lemwerder, Germany, Cloudbreak is now underway to Kristianand in Norway, before she crosses the North Atlantic to Iceland where she will depart on an epic round-the-world voyage.
After four years in development, Cloudbreak now has military styling and a grey paintjob. She has exterior design by Espen Oeino and interior styling by French designer, Christian Liaigre, while her furniture was carefully selected by PH.D architectural bureau.
Named after the renowned Fijian surf spot in the South Pacific, Cloudbreak reportedly hosts a large helipad, an observation platform and ample water sports equipment, including kite surfers, windsurfers, kayaks and scuba gear.
In a statement, Abeking & Rasmussen said, “With a gross tonnage of more than 22,000 tonnes, it is clear that the internal volume specification for this project will make the vessel one of the most substantial global explorer yachts of its kind.”
This, combined with her explorer capabilities, ensures that charter guests will be as comfortable cruising the Mediterranean as the remote areas of the world.
She is equipped with advanced navigational equipment to keep her safe in more remote cruising regions, as well as water craft and board toys, and ample winter sports equipment that can be loaded into the helicopter ready to hit the slopes.
The vessel also includes a handpicked crew for her maiden voyage, which will focus on extreme sports and adventure. Members of the team reportedly include a helicopter pilot, surf coach, paramedic, photographer and yoga instructor.
Cloudbreak is being offered for charter during her circumnavigation under her central agents, SuperYachtsMonaco, with guests offered the chance to step on board at popular locations around the world, including Greenland, Alaska, Costa Rica, Chile and Indonesia.
