Construction of the first in the new 5000 Aluminium Class, project Aquamarine (YN 18950), continues at the Heesen shipyard as the joining of hull and superstructure has been completed. The 50-metre full-aluminium project Aquamarine sports a brand new hull is set to be 12% more efficient thanks to the design work of both Heesen’s in-house naval architects and Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Now in her outfitting phase, the new superyacht is on schedule to be delivered during January 2021.
