Today’s feature on CharterWorld News concentrates on the stunning Abeking & Rasmussen 78m C2 yacht (ex Ann, Project Blue Sky). There is very little known about this beautiful vessel, however her beauty, excellent German craftsmanship, combined with the mysteriousness surrounding this vessel, make her ever so interesting and desirable. Abeking & Rasmussen’s motor yacht C2 was designed by Reymond Langton Design with her interior presumed to be by the Owner’s personal designer, who remains undisclosed. C2 yacht’s close sister-ships, with equally majestic 78 metres include the superyacht Eminence (ex Project Excellence IV), Titan and superyacht Amaryllis.
American Owners have decided to keep their beautiful vessel private and have prohibited the yard and the yacht’s designers from communicating any information whatsoever to the public. A&R mega yacht C2 is registered in The Creek and she was launched in 2009 by the prestigious shipyard in Germany under the hull number 6479.
A&R displacement motor yacht C2 is the 2nd vessel from the 78m series and features a deep-blue steel hull in combination with a white aluminium superstructure. With the exact overall length of 78.43m (257’32”) she features an impressive beam of 12.40 metres (40’68”). Her maximum draft is of 3.20 metres (10’50”). C2 has been built according to the Lloyd’s Register and is MCA compliant.
Powered by twin Caterpillar 3516B DITA model diesel engines of 2,000hp (1,491KW) she is presumably reaching a maximum speed of 16 knots and can comfortably cruise at a speed of 14 knots. Her range is though to be 6,000 nautical miles. All these details indicate her great seaworthiness and great oceangoing capabilities, designed to give top performance in all conditions.
Fuel capacity of this magnificent 78m mega yacht by Abeking & Rasmussen is an amazing 1,600,000 litres with a water capacity of 35,000 litres.
As mentioned before, one of the close sister yachts to C2 is the motor yacht Eminence, which we know more about. This information could give us some indications about possible features, layouts of her more reticent sister vessel. One of the features, possibly found on C2 could be the enclosed elevator, which connects the four decks of the yacht Eminence. The main deck of Eminence, also offers great space for gatherings and entertainment in great style and luxury, which would indicate the same for the mega yacht C2. Great space and excellent setting for al-fresco dining can also be found on Eminence’s bridge deck.
Accommodation on board of Eminence is offered in 7 luxuriously furnished and very well equipped staterooms to a maximum number of 14 guests. A similar layout would be expected on board of C2.
