Superyacht Excellence V launched by Abeking & Rasmussen
by Raphael Montigneaux
Times are busy at Abeking & Rasmussen with its second major superyacht launch in just over a month. Following in the wake of the 78.43 metre motor yacht Amaryllis in August, it's the turn of the 60 metre Excellence V to hit the water.
This long-awaited superyacht is the successor of a series of US-owned yachts, her predecessor (Excellence III) being still very active on the charter market. Excellence IV was sold just before her delivery, and renamed Eminence, but the owner decided to move on to the next number for his latest Excellence.
Built in steel and aluminum, this new Excellence V is a full custom yacht designed inside and out by Reymond Langton Design. Voluminous, her layout accommodates 14 guests and 18 crew over four decks.
Excellence V will be delivered in time for the Winter season in the Caribbean.
