Abeking & Rasmussen Superyacht Soaring Captured on Maiden Voyage

The 68 metre Abeking & Rasmussen superyacht Soaring has been captured on her maiden voyage off the coast of Gibraltar.

After successfully completing sea trials in the North Sea, Soaring was delivered to her owner in March in a small ceremony held at the German shipyard. According to AIS data, the yacht is now heading across the Mediterranean towards Cyprus.

Named after the soar of an eagle, Soaring was designed inside and out by Focus Yacht Design who described the vessel as a “custom-made floating home that leaves nothing to be desired by her owner.”

The studio's managing director, Thomas Mühe, described Soaring as both "modern and timeless at the same time."

Her "sophisticated and elegant" 1,500GT interior can sleep up to 12 in six guest cabins, including a master suite on the aft upper deck which features sliding doors opening onto the owner's aft deck. A library sits on the owner's deck forward and further accommodation can sleep up to 17 crew.

Soaring's sundeck meanwhile plays host to a bar and Jacuzzi, while a beach club, gym, steam room and swim platform can be found on the lower deck.

Soaring left the shipyard in Lemwerder, Germany, to begin sea trials in the North Sea before delivery to her owner

Superyacht Technical Services project managed the construction on behalf of the owner.

Soaring has been listed for charter with Ocean Independence and will be available for cruising once global travel restrictions have been lifted. Power will come from two 2000hp MTU 12V4000 diesel engines.
