FLIBS Exclusive: Heesen presents new project Nina

During the 2015 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Dutch shipyard Heesen will be unveiling their new 38 metre superyacht project Nina. Both the exterior and interior of this semi-displacement yacht is designed by Milan based studio Hot Lab with Heesen’s in-house engineering team taking care of the naval architecture of the vessel.

Hot Lab achieved in creating a stylish and contemporary design approach to the classic Heesen look which that the brand has come to be known for. Wide and open exterior areas are perfectly complimented by elegant interiors where guests are treated to expansive social and accommodation spaces served by plentiful of natural light.

Nina builds on the success of her semi-displacement sisters in the same size range, while emitting her own sense of style. A strong line running from the bow all the way aft connecting to the upper deck creates a clear profile separation of the interior spaces below and the open exterior areas above.

Nina accommodates 10 guest in a full beam master suite and a further four guest cabins below on the accommodation deck. The vessel’s beam of nearly 8 metres allows for enough interior space to completely separate guest areas and crew quarters, as well as allowing for easy crew movement throughput the yacht.

Powered by two MTU 2000 M96L engines developing 1,939kW each, Nina will achieve a maximum speed of 23 knots. Humphree active interceptors will be installed on the yacht to provide a smooth and comfortable cruise even in choppy conditions.

More details about the project will be unveiled throughout the course of this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which starts today.
