78m motor yacht Titan launched by Abeking & Rasmussen

Superyacht Titan has been launched on May 21 by Abeking & Rasmussen in Germany on the banks of the river Weser. Titan is the third yacht in their 78m series. With a length of 78.43m the Titan yacht is one of the largest superyachts in the world – gaining a placing about midway in the Top 100 largest yachts. Motor yacht Titan has her exterior styling created by Reymond Langton, who also designed the two other superyachts in the 78m series.

As mentioned Titan’s exterior as well as interior design was created by Reymond & Langton Design. The naval architecture was completed by A&R’s in house engineering department.  Her short specification is length overall: 257 ft (78,43 m) with a beam of 40,7 ft. (12,40 m).

Eminence - The Titan Yacht Sistership

Yacht Eminence is the first yacht launched in the Abeking & Rasmussen 78 metre series. She was an impressive luxury yacht with a unusual and unique beige hull and she was launched in 2008. Motor yacht C2 with a blue hull was launched in 2009 and the second of the Abeking & Rasmussen 78 series.

Yacht Titan, the third superyacht, was launched today and she has a grey hull, built from steel, with a white superstructure which was constructed in aluminium. Unlike her sister-ships luxury yacht Titan has some minor customisation in the profile look of her sundeck and radar mast areas. Titan can also be distinguished with her large doors which have been positioned on the side part of the forward full beam area. These doors are likely to be for water toy and tender side garages. Abeking are known for designing and building very large transom hatches on their modern motor yachts as they operate two well proven tender launching systems actually developed by A&R. This allows the yacht to employ smooth launching and recovering of the ship tender even whilst under way, or when approaching a anchorage or harbour.

The Abeking & Rasmussen 78 m Yacht series

Yacht Titan is likely to have similar specifications to Eminence, which has two 1492 kW Caterpillar main engines which give a very respectable speed of 16.5 knots. She was also built according to Lloyds Register of Shipping and MCA standards.

More information on the Titan yacht is pending including a full specification, photos and further images.

Motor yacht Titan will be delivered officially to her owner later in the 2010 summer after further finishing and sea tests. CharterWorld will keep you updated.
