Heesen Yachts has announced that, hull number 14750, a 50 metre full-displacement motor yacht, was launched from the shipyard in Oss in the presence of her owners, who christened her Sky.
Sky is a fully customized 50 metre superyacht of over 500GT (approx. 650GT), whose naval architecture has been conceived by Heesen’s in-house naval architects, while the exterior styling was drawn by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects.
The yacht’s contemporary and masculine interior, decorated predominantly with Makassar cabinetry and featuring carbon-fibre and stainless steel detailing, was designed by the New York-based interior designers Mojo-Stumer Associates.
Mark Stumer says: “The architecture of the interior was created to reinforce a linear spatial quality without sacrificing internal headroom. Mundane elements of everyday life, such as televisions, kitchen equipment, and storage units, have been concealed to express immaculate symmetry. This yacht has the window glazing employing an external butt-joint to eliminate dominant vertical mullions”.
Twelve guests will be accommodated in four Guest cabins and one Owner’s suite. The owner’s suite, located forward on the main deck, features a bathroom equipped with a custom made steam shower. The two twin-bedded guest cabins are located amidships on the lower deck, aft of the two VIP double cabins. All cabins are equipped with private ensuite shower rooms. Guests can enjoy a fully equipped fitness area located on the sundeck, where the custom made octagonal spa pool occupies the forward element of this partially sheltered deck area.
The delivery of Sky is scheduled for April 2010, after intensive sea trials in the North Sea.
