The sale of the first of these, YN 16551, a 51-metre, full-displacement vessel was completed in December 2010 to create an enviable total of 7 vessels sold during that year. The first sale of 2011 – YN 15850, a 50-metre, all-aluminium semi-displacement vessel – was completed in January 2011. The contract has been signed thanks to a fruitful collaboration with Burgess.
Heesen’s order book now consists of fifteen yachts currently in construction, all of which will be delivered to their owners by the end of 2014. These figures confirm the strength and financial reliability of this world-renowned company.
This yacht is a 51-metre full-displacement, long range vessel with a steel, round-bilge hull-form and aluminium superstructure.
The contract was signed in December 2010. This yacht offers some unique features, including a 70 square metre gymnasium that is located forward on the main deck - the traditional home of the master suite.
The yacht, designed by Omega Architects, will be powered by a pair of MTU 12V4000 M53 diesels driving twin propellers, which will power it to a maximum speed of 15,6 knots.
The Owner has appointed New York based architectural studio Mojo Stumer, which collaborated with Heesen on the interior design of M.Y. Sky, the award-winning 50-metre presented at the latest Monaco Yacht Show.
YN 16551 will be delivered to her owner in 2014.
This vessel belongs to the Heesen’s 50-metre semi-displacement all-aluminium series, which now has two sister-ships currently under construction: YN 15250 to be launched in February 2011 and YN 16050 to be launched in 2013.
Sophisticated naval architecture, 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 3.200nm and top flight fuel economy.
Twelve guests are accommodated in 6 cabins, 5 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.
The Owner has appointed Omega Architects and Domusnova for the interior design.
YN 15850 is due for delivery in 2011.
