First photo released of elusive Abeking & Rasmussen build hull number 6502

German yard Abeking & Rasmussen has released the first in-build photo of its new 74.5m superyacht; hull number 6502. First announced in 2016, the yacht is due to be completed sometime next year, but few details have been disclosed from the secretive yard.

The photo of the steel and aluminium yacht was taken as the yacht moved between build sheds, and from the picture it is clear the hull and superstructure have been joined.

The interior and exterior designs are courtesy of the London-based Eidsgaard Design studio, while Burgess manages the project.

The naval architecture was developed in-house with the so-called ‘Atlantic bow’ creating a fine entry point. No information on the engine or fuel capacity have been disclosed, but some speculate the name ‘Atlantic bow’ hints to a large cruising range.

Guest accommodation is split across six staterooms, with the owner’s cabin on the main deck. An observation lounge is situated on the upper deck and the sundeck is fitted with an 8m long superyacht swimming pool.

The interior will be fitted in collaboration with Klaus Rodiek GmbH, who has worked with Abeking & Rasmussen on the 60m Kaiser, which hit the water in 2011.

Apart from confirming a 12.8m beam, very little information has been disclosed on the build. Two more superyacht projects are under development at the yard, but due to strict confidentiality agreements, very little is known of this builds also.
