Elandless, 74m yacht by Abeking & Rasmussen


ElandessAbeking & Rasmussen has recently launched its new 74.5-metre superyacht, Elandess, previously known as Project 6502. First announced in the 2016 Global Order Book, the new motor yacht hit the water for the first time at the yard’s facilities in Lemwerder, on Monday, May 7th.

Elandess, a 2,065GT steel and aluminium yacht, is the second Abeking & Rasmussen-built vessel for the owners, and she marks the very first collaboration between the German Yard and London-based Eidsgaard Design Studio.

Eidsgaard Harrison took care of both the exterior design and the interior styling for Elandess, while her naval architecture was developed in-house, and Burgess New Construction division provided project management services.

Elandess boasts a distinctive exterior with the so-called ‘Atlantic bow’, an axe-bow creating a fine entry point, dark hull and low-slung superstructure. As hinted by the name of the bow, Elandess is to feature an impressive oceanic range, although details on engine installations and fuel capacity are yet to be disclosed.

The owner’s brief called for a modern and spacious yacht that would be equally suited for relaxed family time or entertaining. Much of the interior spaces are open plan and flexible by design to accommodate such needs. There are also a variety of interesting communal spaces, from the generous swimming pool on the sun deck to the Nemo Lounge below the waterline and an observation lounge on the upper deck.

Accommodation is provided across six staterooms. The master suite is placed forward on the main deck with an observation lounge directly above on the upper deck. The interior fitting was carried out in collaboration with Rodiek.

Sea trials are scheduled to start soon alongside the River Weser and the North Sea, with delivery expected by summer 2018.
