With her heavily reversed bow and acres of glass, the 78.5m (257.2ft) EXCELLENCE is one of the most distinctive yachts built in recent years and, being the sixth yacht to bear her name, also the culmination of all of the owner’s previous experience in yacht building. Working closely with Winch Design and the renowned Abeking & Rasmussen shipyard, in this groundbreaking build the owner’s vision, attitude and knowledge is evident throughout every square centimetre, and the result is an award-winning yacht with many unique and radical features.
EXCELLENCE’s 2,115GT of internal space is intelligently unconventional. Flooded with the natural light that flows through the triple-height glass atrium and the full-height windows, her interior is at one with the surroundings. Winch Design’s interior style softens the enormous guest areas, decorated in a blend of mid-tones with occasional splashes of bright colour. A variety of woods including birds eye maple, blue ombre, sycamore, burr, limed oak and more, combines with fine Italian leathers and a selection of marble shades for the fixed furniture, accentuated with light-coloured soft furnishings and upholstery.
The entire upper deck is dedicated to the owner and includes a master suite and lounge, a private deck with jacuzzi and sun lounging area aft and a terrace area forward. Above the owner’s deck is the substantial sun deck with a lounge area and jacuzzi. There is also a large pool on the main deck with a swim-up bar. The main deck is also home to the guest accommodation with six double cabins, a lounge and dining area, a dedicated cinema room, spa, sauna and a gym. From here steps lead down to the large beach club with terrace area, and wide comfortable bathing steps to provide easy access to the plethora of water toys stored in the garage, which has also been fitted out with a bar and seating area to entertain guests while they enjoy the wide variety of water activities available.
