She has been intimately specced by her owner New yachts are blank canvasses, coloured in by the requirements of the owner and animated by the imagination of the designer. Cloudbreak , the new 72.5-metre from Abeking & Rasmussen, has been intimately specced by her owner, as well as her designer Espen Øino. “To say that recreational lifestyle was at the front of the owner’s mind when he gave me his brief is an understatement!
