Heesen announce 50m Project Alba sold

New-Build

Heesen Yachts has recently announced the sale of YB 18050, the 50 metre superyacht Project Alba, marking the third new build contract sold for the Dutch shipyard in 2015. Construction begun shortly before her sale, offering her experienced owners a new build project with all the advantages of a shorter delivery time.

The all aluminium vessel boasts a particularly large volume in comparison to similar yachts in this size range and was designed by Omega Architects, who have created a distinctive profile with flowing lines and continuous sheets of triple laminated glazing that are thermo-bonded to the superstructure to create a seamless wall of windows.

Her interior comes from the drawing board of Francesco Paszkowski - his third collaboration with Heesen Yachts in this 50 metre semi-displacement class. Paszkowski comments, "The interior design we created with Margherita Casprini, and combines contemporary aesthetics with a classic layout to reflect Heesen’s heritage. We played with contrasting colours, light and dark, and lacquered surfaces and finishes to further emphasise the airy brightness of the interior. Natural leather and stone were selected to create a warm and welcoming ambience and provide a coherent style throughout the yacht."

On board she accommodates 12 guests over six en suite staterooms, including a large master suite located on the main deck. Powered by twin MTU engines, she has a top speed of 23 knots.

Arne Ploch of Camper and Nicholsons introduced the client in the sale of Project Alba. She is scheduled for delivery in January 2018.
