Abeking & Rasmussen delivered its new flagship, the 82.3-metre motoryacht Secret, ahead of schedule on 30 May. It is the largest yacht ever built at the German shipyard.

Abeking And Rasmussens Secret Is Out

The build order for the yacht was placed by Burgess and commissioned for an experienced yacht owner. Secret's naval architecture was developed by the in-house design team at Abeking & Rasmussen. The sportive, distinctive slender curves and lines of the exterior are from the hands of the Australian designer Sam Sorgiovanni and Jim Harris, the long-time designer for these owners, designed the elegant and modern interior.

Captain Andrew Lawrence, who served as build captain and owners' representative since the inception of the project, described the yacht as "phenomenal masterpiece".
