Video: Abeking & Rasmussen 81m Romea delivered

The 81.8-metre Abeking & Rasmussen Project Dartwo, now named Romea, was spotted in the video below leaving Germany.

German yacht builder Abeking & Rasmussen launched its 81.8-metre superyacht Dartwo in February 2015. She has now been delivered to her owners. After leaving Germany, Romea made a quick stop in Kristansand, Norway – a common place for refuelling – and now she's reported to be in Douglas, Isle of Man.

The video gives an close-up view of superyacht Romea as she motors past, showing off the curves on the upper deck, ample aft decks, large tender garage hatch and sweeping staircases leading down to the swim platform.

Romea is the second Abeking & Rasmussen motor yacht built on this 81.8 metre hull platform. She is the sister ship to the timelessly designed Kibo, exclusively featured in Boat International.

With interior and exterior by renowned yacht designer Terence Disdale, Kibo makes a mark for her deliberate lack of sensational design features, even forgoing the spa tub. "A yacht should have more in common with a beach house than a penthouse", Terence Disdale said.

The second steel-and-aluminium, full-displacement superyacht built on this platform, Romea had been kept under a cloak of secrecy. It’s know that she also features exterior and interior design by Disdale, but it is unconfirmed whether he has also styled the interior and to such a simplistically elegant degree as her sistership. Like her sister, Romea has a gross tonnage of 2,300GRT and naval architecture by Abeking & Rasmussen.

Powered by twin Caterpillar engines, Romea will reach a top speed of 16.5 knots and cruise at 14 knots while her range is 4,500 nautical miles at this speed.

While the builder has four yachts on the Global Order Book 2015, Romea is the only yacht planned to be launched by Abeking & Rasmussen this year. Project 6499, a 72 metre steel and aluminium yacht, is slated for delivery in 2016, as is the smaller project 6500 – a SWATH yacht that is also built in steel and aluminium and clocks in at 25 metres. The future Abeking & Rasmussen flagship, 98 metre hull No 6501, is slated for delivery in 2017.
