Ranked among the most elite megayachts afloat, the 85m (278.9ft) ACE was built at the Lürssen shipyard in Germany and has been maintained in excellent condition since her launch in 2012. Her striking exterior lines and classically styled interior showcase the talents of renowned designer Andrew Winch. With a substantial volume of 2,732GT she has an impressive array of lifestyle spaces and features.
Built with uncompromising quality, ACE’s exquisitely designed interior has an atmosphere of traditional elegance created through the use of opulent contemporary and classic furniture, fabrics and lighting with a rich, creamy colour scheme. Her unusual layout includes an owner’s suite on the bridge deck with a full beam cabin, sitting room, office and access to private balconies on both sides. Four further and very spacious guest cabins are located on the main deck, accessed via a large sweeping staircase.
Inside and out ACE has ample communal guest areas, including a stunning top deck with shaded seating and lounging areas, and a centrally located air-conditioned tea room for those looking for a refuge from the midday sun. The upper deck also has both a relaxed lounge and bar area leading to a large al fresco dining and lounge area aft, and a formal lounge area with formal dining located forward.
Leisure facilities include a large pool on the top deck and a stunning beach club area on the lower deck, with jacuzzi and plunge pool located adjacent to a large spa with sauna and hammam. Other facilities include a dedicated cinema room with tiered seating and sumptuous lounge chairs, a gym and beauty salon. ACE has a full complement of tenders and toys including an 8.9m Hinckley Talaria tender, scuba diving equipment, SeaBobs, jetskis and inflatables.
ACE was built to Lloyd's 100A1, its highest class, and features a displacement steel hull and aluminium superstructure. Her twin MTU 16V 4000 M61 engines give her to a top speed of 16.5 knots, with a range of 6,000nm when cruising at 12 knots and a 4,000nm range when cruising at 14 knots. ACE also features a helipad suitable for the take-off and landing of large helicopters, and is equipped with Quantum XT zero speed stabilisers, making her a stable platform whatever the weather.
