22 March 2023 • Written by Nick Jeffery

The 68-metre Abeking & Rasmussen motor yacht Soaring, listed for sale by Ocean Independence, has been sold with Peter Hürzeler and Daniel Küpfer of Ocean Independence in an in-house deal. The yacht received a €10,000,000 price reduction in October 2022.

Named after the soar of an eagle, Soaring was built in steel and aluminium by German yard Abeking & Rasmussen, designed inside and out by Focus Yacht Design and delivered in March 2020. The owner wanted an exterior that wouldn’t be mistaken for any other yacht on the horizon, which was achieved through scalloped windows, an orange boot stripe and an "eagle-beak bow".

Soaring was asking €88,000,000

A contemporary 1,500GT interior can sleep up to 12 in six guest cabins, including a master suite on the aft upper deck that features sliding doors opening onto a private aft terrace. A library/observation lounge sits on the owner's deck forward and further accommodation can sleep up to 17 crew.

All of the cabins feature natural themes, depicting animals or plants. These touches are found in bathrooms and cabins, on the floor, the doors and headboards, the latter of which were all designed by Focus and custom-made by Tai Ping. In the master suite, eagles soar over the bed, while in the guest cabins a variety of plants and seashell shapes are depicted in blue. Five guest cabins, including a full-beam VIP, are on the main deck, forward of the main saloon and dining room.

She offers an abundance of socialising and entertaining outdoor areas, including the sundeck with a bar and a Jacuzzi spa tub with surrounding sun pads. The lower deck features a beach club with a professional gym, a spa with a steam room plus a swim platform that provides a spacious area near the water, for sunbathing and easy access to tenders and water toys. 

Power comes from two 2,000hp MTU 12V4000 diesel engines delivering a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.

Soaring was asking €88,000,000.
