Sophisticated naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, combined with Heesen’s weight reduction expertise and a pair of 2.720kW MTU engines have combined to create a yacht with a range of 3,200 nm and top-flight fuel economy. Designed by Cristiano Gatto, up to twelve guests are accommodated in six cabins, five of which (including a VIP suite which occupies the yacht’s full beam) are located on the lower deck, while the owner’s suite, that also occupies the full-beam, is located forward on the main deck. Here she is seen at anchor outside Cala di Volpe on the island of Sardinia last month.
