Built by Abeking & Rasmussen in 2009 to a design by Reymond Langton, the 85.65m B2 is a superyacht that stands out amongst her peers. The second largest vessel afloat to have been built by the notable Dutch yard, B2 is beautifully proportioned and designed to offer the ultimate superyacht lifestyle. She is a first-class vessel in every regard.
Fresh out of a major refit, completed July 2022, and featuring a brand-new Winch Design interior, B2 is in fantastic condition. Her luxurious new interior features neutral tones with deep marine blues and oceanic patterns, with every detail executed to the highest standards. The exterior furniture has also been renewed and carefully selected artworks adorn the walls.
With a unique mix of versatility and style, Dutch build pedigree and an immaculate finish, the supremely high standards achieved aboard this yacht are hard to emulate.
Across B2’s five decks, the interior layout facilitates two saloon lounges, one on the main deck with enormous sofas and various seating areas, and one on the bridge deck that offers a more intimate setting.
The upper deck dining room can be opened to aft to create a free-flowing dynamic between the exterior seating and the dining space, or for al fresco dining and more casual lunches, the aft setup on the bridge deck is the location of choice.
Ascending to the sun deck, a Jacuzzi is positioned forward and enjoys uninterrupted, elevated views to the horizon. This is flanked by cushioned sun pads and there are several loungers that can be positioned to suit.
B2 has accommodation for 31 guests in 15 suites and is one of few yachts this size offering such numbers. The configuration comprises 12 doubles and two twins, all of which are en suite. The guest accommodation is arranged across the lower and main decks, with the master stateroom taking prime location on the upper deck and benefitting from a his-and-hers en suite complete with bathtub.
B2’s most notable feature is surely her glass-bottomed pool. Located to aft on the main deck, it resides above a gorgeous beach club lounge, which additionally boasts fold-down balconies port and starboard, extending the usable space right to the water’s edge.
Other onboard amenities to deliver a superlative superyacht lifestyle include a fully equipped gym, massage room and a glass elevator that runs to all decks.
Two pairs of retractable zero-speed stabiliser fins provide exceptional comfort and seakeeping capabilities in every sea state. With a top speed of 16.5 knots, B2 cruises economically at 13.5 knots and offers a range of 6,475nm.
The tender garage runs full beam with port and starboard openings. Located just ahead of the beach club, it provides ample space for a fleet of smaller watercraft and toys.
As one of the largest yachts currently on the market, MLC compliant, and maintained in immaculate condition, B2 is the perfect yacht for multi-generational family use or an owner seeking a vessel of premium pedigree for charter operations.
