The 88.8-metre yacht has been introduced by Abeking & Rasmussen and Y.CO
The Andrew Winch-designed Project Intensity incorporates elements of the engineering platform of the 82-metre Kibo, which Abeking & Rasmussen launched last year. Glass is clearly a key element of the new yacht, with windows wrapping around the main deck and bridge deck living spaces, and the owner’s deck above.
“The striking trideck superstructure, incorporating elegant curves and a glass wrapping, appears iridescent in the reflection of the water and sunlight. Welcoming and spacious decks provide the perfect environment to entertain guests and relax in the warmth of the sun. I am very proud of Intensity’s extraordinary design, and excited about working with Abeking & Rasmussen and Y.CO to bring this beautiful and striking superyacht to life,” says Andrew Winch.
Y.CO broker Will Christie was part of the Y.CO team that managed the build of Kibo and he was keen to make use of the successful engineering platform. “With all the pre-engineering done, there will be considerable cost and time savings for a potential owner, and man-hours for the yard. The yacht can be delivered in three years,” he says. The project has an asking price, including interior, of €126 million. “The brief we gave Andrew Winch was to create something really different, and I think this will be a unique yacht. There has been interest already.”
“We are excited to collaborate with Andrew Winch Designs on this groundbreaking project,” says Till von Krause, sales director at Abeking & Rasmussen. “His design, twinned with the German quality for which our yard is known, will make Intensity one of the most incredible yachts built for a generation. Built on a proven platform but with a bespoke design, the owner will have the comfort of a well-tested yacht with a totally unique exterior.”
