From the award-winning and world-renowned shipyard, Abeking & Rasmussen, comes the stunning 42.83m ketch sailing yacht, ASGARD. Built in 1993, she has undergone a couple of refits, most notably in 2014 and 2020.
The 2014 refit included a completely new beautiful teak deck, major upgrades to the navigation and electrical systems along with a stunning facelift of the interior by illustrious designer, Rhoades Young. While the 2020 refit focused on a complete overhaul of the thrusters, the main engine, both generators and the gearbox.
As a result of ASGARD’s most recent refit, she is in immaculate condition and quite a sight to behold! Complemented by her classic lines with a modern rig, she is a proven world explorer with an incredible sailing performance. Having won the Superyacht Cup and the Spirit of Tradition Class of the Rolex Maxi Worlds, ASGARD is considered a pedigree superyacht.
ASGARD’s achievements are also notable considering the involvement of award-winning designers for both her exterior and interior. The acclaimed designer Bruce King, worked with the owner in order to develop and build a ship that could cruise the world but also wow at Regattas – a feat complete considering the corners of the world she has visited from Alaska to the South Pacific and New Zealand, along with the races she has won.
This doesn’t detract however from the opulence and comfort of the interior designed by Andrew Winch and Rhoades Young. With a classic look interior, impressive and stylish furnishings polished perfectly with Mahogany wood detailing and flooring throughout, ASGARD can accommodate up to ten guests across five pleasant cabins. The Master Cabin is quite the comfort statement, considering it is full beam, has an ensuite along with a private seating area.
ASGARD has a strong cold moulded mahogany hull that has been built to withstand a whole lifetime. Lighter than fibreglas and cheaper than carbon hull constructions, the cold moulding technique relies heavily on epoxy resin to sheath the entire structure to keep the water out.
This unique construction gives this ketch an eye-catching design and an incredible performance, combined with a classic appearance. ASGARD is bound to impress with friends and family alike.
