In the superyacht industry, renowned names combining their talents and expertise often result in interesting superyachts, to say the least. This is certainly the case with the 46.7 metre My Secret that was launched in 2012 by acclaimed Dutch shipyard Heesen Yachts. In a team composed of Heesen, Bannenberg & Rowell for the luxurious interior designs and exterior design by Omega Architects, the superyacht is one of the pedigree options available on the market in this size range today.
This award-winning vessel boasts elegant lines and well-balanced proportions. She has a classic appeal while remaining undeniably modern in style, her crisp white hull giving her a confident and slightly sportive personality.
The interiors onboard show off a distinctly Californian style, hailing from the 40s and 50s of the twentieth century. Modern lines, light and creamy colours combined with darker, more intense tints, and luxury materials are blended to form a friendly, intimate environment that combines luxurious style with a sense practicality. Among others, the latter can be seen in the overall preference for lightweight materials, aiming for optimal weight reduction. The large furniture and friendly yet glamorous style undeniably evoke a sense of the classic Hollywood era, yet manage to remain undeniably contemporary.
My Secret's grand master suite occupies most of the fore main deck. Entering through a private office, the full beam master stateroom is an impressive example of delicate design. From subtly blended colours and luxury materials, to the natural light and intricate attention to detail, this stateroom manages to combine a sense of grandeur without becoming overwhelmingly dramatic.
Outside, the aft deck with large al fresco dining table forms the perfect extension of the upper saloon, with light wicker chairs and several lounge corners allowing guests to sit back, relax, and enjoyMy Secret's natural elegance.
Currently located in the Maldives, My Secret is listed for sale with Fraser Yachts at EUR 22,500,000. For more information, go here.
