The highly secretive 118m (385 ft) superyacht Project 6507 hit the water at high tide this morning from Abeking & Rasmussen's facilities in Lemwerder, Germany – representing the yard's largest vessel built to date.
Spanning seven decks, the yacht has been revealed with a unique low profile and striking monochrome look, with a glossy black hull and white superstructure, alongside a plumb bow and floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise natural light and create wide vistas to provide a harmonious balance with her surroundings.
She also features a starboard nemo observation lounge offering guests unique underwater views from the comfort of the yacht, similar to Abeking & Rasmussen's 74.5-meter yacht M'BRACE (previously ELANDESS), as well as superyacht SAVANNAH – one of the first to encompass this feature on board a superyacht.
Known only as Project 6507, the megayacht’s specifications and amenities have been kept a closely guarded secret, but pictures reveal she has a fully-certified helipad on her sundeck and vast swimming pool on her main deck aft, as well as a wealth of alfresco relaxation areas across her voluminous deck spaces.
We also now know that her exterior and interior design come from the boards of Parisan studio Joseph Dirand Architecture, who have clearly chosen to keep guests connnected to their natural environment with a host of innovative features and open design. The yacht's naval architecture comes courtesy of Abeking & Rasmussen's in-house design team.
She is rumoured to feature state-of-the-art technology and engineering for all her onboard systems, as well as a hybrid propulsion system enabling her to cruise in diesel-electric mode, significantly reducing her energy consumption and providing considerable fuel savings to her owner.
It’s clear that Abeking and Rasmussen have brought all of their experience to bear on their most recent project, the first since the launch of superyacht SOARING in 2020.
It is expected that Project 6507 will undertake sea trials in Germany early next year with an anticipated delivery date for early Spring. It is not yet known whether she will be made available for luxury yacht charters.
