Video: Project 6505 arrives at Abeking & Rasmussen
by Chris Jefferies
Built from a steel hull at the Szczecin shipyard in Poland, it is understood that the new arrival measures more than 80 metres overall. The yard has yet to comment, but it is widely believed to be the hull of the 88.8 metre superyacht Project Intensity.
Key clues include the distinctive reverse-angle bow and the large cut-out section in the stern, which is likely to house the yacht’s tender garage.
The first renderings for Project Intensity (pictured below) were revealed in 2015 by the Winch Design studio, however the London-based studio declined to comment on this latest development.
Based on the same technical platform as the yard’s 2014 launch Kibo with a 12.6 metre beam and a maximum draught of 3.45 metres, Project Intensity includes vast expanses of glass on the upper three decks, including a double-height effect that blurs the distinction between the upper deck and the panoramic skylounge.
However, the notoriously secretive yard has yet to confirm if the projects are linked and it has two custom entries in the 2018 Global Order Book, so the connection between Project 6505 and Project Intensity isn't certain at this stage.
