60-Meter Kaiser

Abeking & Rasmussen

60-Meter Kaiser

Based on her German name, it’s hardly surprising that the 60-meter Kaiser was launched by a German shipyard—Abeking & Rasmussen. At the owner’s direction, the interior design features touches of late 19th-century German antiques and decorations, and the designers at Bannenberg & Rowell Designs were able to combine those turn-of-the-century elements into a vibrant and modern interior.

At the amidships foyer, an inlaid marble calligraphic K features an ornate pattern that is mirrored in the main staircase’s inlaid wood walls and steel handrail, both crafted by A&R subsidiary Rotec. Inset in the doors are also antique stainless steel Jugendstil-patterned slabs. To keep these details from becoming dark and overwhelming the designers used bright pops of color such as the curved orange skylounge sofa or the reds and greens of the main saloon. Another trick was to create intimate conversation spaces throughout this high-volume yacht. There’s a four-person table tucked into a corner of the skylounge and a small sitting area off the owner’s suite. Either is a perfect nook for the owner’s lucky guests to claim as their own.
