M/Y ‘RASSELAS’

Motor Yacht ‘RASSELAS’

M/Y ‘Rasselas’ is a 62m motor yacht, custom built in 2005 by Feadship in Aalsmeer (Netherlands). This classic superyacht can trace her ancestry to a number of iconic boats such as Paraffin and Gallant Lady, as well as her earlier namesake, also built for the same American owner. The vessel’s sophisticated exterior design and engineering are the work of De Voogt Naval Architects. Her designers, De Voogt, placed special emphasis on creating an extraordinary top deck and outer areas for the yacht. With a classic mahogany interior she is one of the last major yachts with an interior made from this tropical wood.

A powerful propulsion package of twin 2,000hp Caterpillar engines gives her a cruising speed of 14 knots and she tops out at 16 knots.

Accommodations: M/Y ‘Rasselas’ offers accommodation for up to 14 guests in 6 suits comprising 1 owner cabin, 3 double cabins, 2 twin cabins. She is also capable of carrying up to 19 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience.
