Abeking & Rasmussen Motor Yacht RoMEA: Comfort, Detail, and Luxury
Abeking & Rasmussen’s 81-meter/268-foot Motor Yacht RoMEA is the epitome of low key luxury. Capturing nature’s rich color palette, embellished with soothing beach-inspired detail, RoMEA’s Terance Disdale design gives this yacht an effortless chic that is both comfortable and casual.
Natural surfaces built of rock and stone are interspersed with the whites and creams of the lushly-textured fabrics, framed in dark wood accents. Simulating a well-feathered beach nest, the full beam, main deck master suite features two dressing rooms, private office, and a children’s twin cabin. The rustic luxury of the bath embraces a pebbled floor, marble soaking tub, and spacious glass-walled stone shower.
On the lower deck, a VIP cabin sits forward, with two double cabins and two twins just aft, one of which is equipped with a Pullman. All seven cabins, accommodating 14 guests, have en suite baths and are equipped with sophisticated entertainment systems. A central server enables music on demand throughout the yacht. Accommodations for 23 crew provide for an exceptional level of service for guests.
The main salon, sumptuously outfitted in light fabrics, walls, and carved carpet, is trimmed in ebony and lit with abundant natural light through oversize windows. Two cinemas, one adjacent to the salon as well as on the bridge deck are stocked with an extensive selection of English and Russian films.
Forward on the sun deck, a Jacuzzi provides a sunny perch. A spa salon equipped with massage table on the upper deck provides expansive views. The beach club sauna and Jacuzzi offer immediate relaxation after water play on any of four tenders, SeaDoos, Waverunners, Yamaha Super jet skis, Sea Bobs, windsurfers, kayaks, fishing gear, dive equipment, water skis, and a collection of towable toys.
The exterior is the perfect profile of a private luxury yacht, sporting a sleek white steel hull and streamlined aluminum superstructure. RoMEA has 5,750 nm range, with a cruising speed of 16 knots. At-anchor, zero speed stabilizers keep the ride smooth in rough seas, with additional stabilizers for use underway.
Like her sister ship Kibo, RoMEA provides significant headroom, making this an appropriate choice for those of tall stature. Custom surfaces, from walls and furniture to ceilings and central stair around the elevator column add thoughtful detail with artistic appeal. A light, spacious, beach house feel keeps this yacht’s comfortable profile a casual, appealing choice for a truly relaxing escape.
