In build: Heesen’s 50m Project Ayla superyacht

Written by Gemma Fottles

Heesen has announced the latest construction update in regards to the 50-metre Project Ayla, stating that the hull and superstructure were successfully joined just two days ago in the yard’s facility in Oss, the Netherlands. Designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects with a minimalist chic interior from the drawing boards of Cristian Gatto.

On board she accommodates 12 guests over a six cabin layout, including a full beam master suite on the main deck in addition to a full beam VIP suite, two twin and two double cabins on the lower deck. Commenting on some of her most attractive features, the Heesen team state: “Project Ayla is not only about speed and power, she is also very much about comfort and space. Zero speed stabilizers reduce motion to a minimum while at anchor and the yacht offers the best internal volume possible in a design package below the 500GT threshold. Clients have the opportunity to personalise the décor at different stages of the construction process thanks to the extensive use of fabric upholstery, both on vertical and horizontal surfaces. This will allow the new owners to choose material and colour palettes to create the atmosphere that corresponds to their own taste and lifestyle.

Powered by twin MTU 16V engines, providing her with a top speed of 23 knots and a transatlantic range of 3,200 nm at a speed of 11 knots.

Project Ayla is scheduled for delivery in April 2018. She is currently available for purchase at an asking price of €32,900,000.
