Project: Heesen 51.10 metres Hull Number 16551

Heesen present the project for a 51.10 metres full-displacement, long range vessel with a steel, round-bilge hull-form and aluminium superstructure. This super yacht offers some unique features, including a seventy square metre gymnasium that is located forward on the main deck usually the traditional home of the master suite. Designed by Omega Architects this new vessel is a further development of the lines seen of Man of Steel and Sky. YN 16551 accommodates 12 guests in five cabins, comprising two twins each with an additional Pullman berth, and two doubles located on the lower deck and the owner’s suite located aft on the bridge deck, where it has exclusive access to the open deck and its Jacuzzi. The sun deck is partially shaded and enclosed by rounded windows on its forward side to protect it from the wind. Here, the owner and his guests can enjoy an alfresco dinner, or lounge on the sunbathing area on the aft portion that surrounds a further massive rectangular Jacuzzi. The yacht will be powered by a pair of MTU 3646hp diesel engines, which will power it to a maximum speed of 15 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.
