New Model: Heesen 49.80 metres Hull Number 14750

Heesen Yachts is proud to announce that hull number 14750, a 49.80 metre full-displacement motor yacht, was launched from the Oss shipyard, Holland in the presence of her owners, who christened her Sky. The latest Heesen is a fully customized super yacht with an approx 650 gross tonnage of displacement, whose naval architecture has been conceived by Heesen’s in-house naval architects, while the exterior styling was drawn by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. The yacht’s contemporary and masculine interior, decorated predominantly with Makassar cabinetry and featuring carbon-fibre and stainless steel detailing, was designed by the New York-based interior designers Mojo-Stumer Associates. Twelve guests will be accommodated in four Guest cabins and one Owner’s suite. The owner’s suite, located forward on the main deck, features a bathroom equipped with a custom made steam shower. The two twin-bedded guest cabins are located amidships on the lower deck, aft of the two VIP double cabins. All cabins are equipped with private ensuite shower rooms. Guests can enjoy a fully equipped fitness area located on the sundeck, where the custom made octagonal spa pool occupies the forward element of this partially sheltered deck area. The Heesen 49.80 metres hull number 14750 is powered by twin 3646hp MTU which deliver a top 23 knots speed, and can cruise at 12 knots for 3200nm before needing another refuel of 68000 litres. The delivery of Sky is scheduled for this month, after intensive sea trials in the North Sea.
