Superyachts Azamanta and Highlander in Gibraltar
The brand new 55m Heesen superyacht Azamanta (left) was delivered to her owner earlier this year in July. The yacht with her striking copper-gold hull was developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects and features an exterior design by Omega Architects. Her interior design is the work of Sinot Yacht Design. Azamanta is specifically designed to safely cruise in high latitudes thanks to her ice-reinforced steel hull. She has since left Gibraltar and is currently making her way across the Atlantic to St. Maarten according to her AIS signal.
The 49.45m superyacht Highlander was commissioned by well-known American bsusinessman and publisher of the Forbes magazine, Malcolm Forbes, and launched by Feadship De Vries in 1986 as The Highlander. The yacht underwent an extensive one-year long refit during which her hull was extended, a complete new interior installed, as well as various cosmetic works completed to the exterior. The white storm shutters that are in place forward on main deck suggest that she too might depart Gibraltar soon to make the crossing.
