Lemwerder-based shipyard delivered the 68m motor yacht SOARING.

The exterior and interior of SOARING have been created by the Bremen-based studio Focus Yacht Design. The yacht’s name comes from the soaring of a majestic eagle. Abeking & Rasmussen constructed the displacement motor yacht with a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure for an experienced yacht owner.

SOARING can be chartered for 850,000 € per week.

The tender garage has been placed forward on the main deck. On the starboard side is a 9m limo tender, on the port side is a 7.50m tender – both are by Compass. Furthermore, SOARING carries a 5.5m Pascoe rescue boat. Toys are stored on the lower deck.

Comment by Thomas Mühe of Focus Yacht Design

“What is good design? There are, as there have always been, different opinions on this. The Focus Yacht Design office developed its very own design definition. We are less interested in the questions of materiality, of forms, colours and fashions. We work primarily with the interpretation and the character of a yacht, seen as a singularity, an essence and also as a reflection of the owner’s personality. This personality alone is the decisive criteria for all the aesthetic and technical decision making on all FYD projects. The same applies to the development of the interior and exterior design for MY SOARING. Our goal was not to put together a selection of attractive details, but to create a coherent and harmonious whole that was to be simultaneously impressive and imposing but most of all a reflection and representation of the owner’s central life themes and requests.
It is most probably this very personal approach that positively surprised and convinced the owner from the very beginning. There were almost no design changes, but always very clear ideas and visions of what SOARING was to be that grew out of a very close collaboration. This gave rise to numerous unique and unconventional solutions, such as the back-lit onyx wall in the library. It is features like these, the successful fusion of classical and contemporary yacht design elements that imbue SOARING with a certain charisma. One of the many examples of this concept is the deliberately reduced but simultaneously expressive design language, such as the contrast of very light and very dark veneers. It is great to see how our concept has impacted the end result in such a purposeful and meaningful way. SOARING is a fascinating sight, but what is even more important for us is that she is a bespoke place of wellbeing, relaxation and enjoyment.”
