EXCELLENCE V 60m charter yacht by Abeking & Rasmussen
Built by Abeking & Rasmussen in 2012, the 196.85ft/60m Custom motor yacht ‘EXCELLENCE V’ features an interior and exterior designed by the highly acclaimed Reymond Langton Design.
Appropriately named, the award-winning Excellence V is of distinctly German pedigree and was clearly designed with the charterer in mind. Indeed, from her dedicated cinema to her waterfront gym, all of the space has been optimised in order to create the ultimate luxury charter experience.
Graced with wide side decks and multiple outdoor lounges, the exterior of superyacht Excellence V is exceptionally well suited for both relaxation and evening strolls against the sunset. Dividing the exterior into 10 dedicated spaces, Reymond Langton Design have provided Excellence V with three fully stocked bars and an impressive seven lounges- an arrangement sure to satisfy guests who look forward to taking in their surroundings whilst underway or at-anchor. Clearly anticipating charterers who enjoy spending their time outdoors, the beach club has been built amidship starboard for more room to relax and socialise in. Indeed, with the tenders being boarded at the yacht’s stern in the usual fashion, guests are able to work out at the waterside gym or sunbathe on the retractable platform in an environment free of toys and other marine gear. Elsewhere outside, a glass fronted spa pool offers an incredible means of cooling off in the sun whilst still having access to unparalleled views. To warm up again, there’s no better way to do so by taking a dip in the Jacuzzi whilst sampling some cocktails from the adjacent bar. Naturally, dining outside has been given considerable attention by Reymond Langton Design, who have included an expandable table on the bridge deck to allow exquisite dishes and refreshing sea breezes to go hand in hand.
With each of the five decks accessible via a sizable glass elevator encased by a spiral staircase, the interior of Excellence V is as replete with impressive features as her exterior. Featuring a foyer, a main salon, and a spacious upper deck lounge, guests are able to socialise and unwind whilst being surrounded by a wealth of diverse artwork and subtle design attributes. The dining area found on the main deck allows for a more formal experience than the al fresco arrangement located on the bridge deck, and the attendant decor is appropriately striking. Complete with comfortable theatre-style seating, the on-board cinema benefits from a few extra cushions to ensure that everyone is suitably relaxed whilst enjoying the latest blockbusters. Privileging layers above all else, Reymond Langton Design have combined a variety of textures over multiple surfaces to produce an interior which is at once engaging and wholly inviting. The woodwork which adorns the social and private spaces is equally outstanding- the combination of macassar ebony, golden burl, fiddleback sycamore, stained anigre, and maple showcases an exceptional array of tones and grains. Whilst the general colour scheme is entirely contemporary, balancing white and black throughout, occasional splashes of royal blue and vermillion reveal a playfulness underlying the interior design. To allow for a more discreet service from her attentive crew, hidden panels have been installed throughout the yacht in order for the team of 15 to navigate the various interior spaces without disrupting the overall aesthetic flow.
Committed to using only the finest materials and furnishings, the sleeping options on board Excellence V scale the very heights of luxury, affording every guest an exceptional environment to catch up on their rest. Located on the upper deck, the Owner’s deck is a veritable penthouse. Private yet informal, the suite can be accessed via elevator from the beach club, meaning that arrival via tender could not be more stylish. With hallways adorned with eye-catching works of art leading out to a private terrace, the primary charterer is able to take advantage of their own sunpads and spa bath. What’s more Reymond Langton Design have placed low bulkheads to allow for uninterrupted views across the ocean. Located on the port and starboard sides are his and hers bathrooms respectively, each with a private Jacuzzi and a walk through wardrobe uniting the two. The bed itself is situated underneath an expansive sunlight which can be blacked out at a moment’s notice, and a private office is situated adjacent for attending to any necessary business whilst out on the water. A further feature of the Owner’s dec is the double cabin located opposite which has been designed to accommodate either a nanny or staff. With convenient access to both the main deck below and the bridge deck above, the guest making use of this deck will find themselves effortlessly navigating between social and private areas of Excellence V. The VIP and further four double suites are all located at the forward section of the main deck and feature silk carpeting and large windows which can be turned opaque at the flick of a switch.
LEISURE & ENTERTAINMENT
Replete with space to unwind in, and a number of towable toys and tenders on hand, enjoying yourself on Excellence V is entirely effortless. Uniquely styled and conveniently positioned, the beach club on-board Excellence V includes a shaded bar, a lounging space, and open teak decking extending right up to the water’s edge. Not only does this terrace-like arrangement allow for water side aerobics , but it also makes arriving on-board Excellence V a memorable experience in itself. As part of the Owner’s deck, a dedicated salon with a generously sized games table is the perfect spot for some after-hours entertaining, whilst the wet bar attached to the lounge on the main deck is fantastic for some midday refreshment. Another standout attraction is unquestionably the sports bar on the bridge deck, an ideal spot for getting a party underway.
Due to her size, Excellence V is able to access the world’s most desirable ports whilst still boasting an interior volume which has been put to great use. As well as boasting a number of dedicated social spaces, the owner’s deck and exterior are all but unrivalled in the charter fleet.
As well as providing an outstanding space for sunbathing and diving into the water, the beach club terrace provides a generous amount of gym and aerobics equipment to make workout routines as enjoyable as possible.
Excellence V is built with Steel hull and Aluminium superstructure. As a displacement yacht, she is equipped with an ultra-modern stabilization system which reduces roll motion effect and results in a smoother more enjoyable cruising experience.
