New Model: Heesen 47m YN 16947

Heesen is proud to announce that project YN 16947, 47 metre displacement, was launched at the facility in Oss. The owners, during a private ceremony, christened her M/Y Asya.  Asya’s exterior design combines beautiful traditional lines with a contemporary flair emphasized by the continuous glued glass windows and matching black paintwork on the main deck and upper decks all from the board of the highly talented Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. Her sophisticated interior from the London-based and multi-award winning studio Bannenberg & Rowell has a distinctly Far Eastern, restful feel, inspired by the designs of Dieter Rams, Frank Lloyd-Wright and Tadao Ando. Simplicity as the ultimate form of sophistication is the guiding principle of Asya’s interior design. It combines silver-grey oiled oak, mid-gloss lacquer, silk and bronze with contrasting dark Makassar ebony and polished stainless steel detailing and accents.  Thanks to her well-engineered steel hull with bulbous bow, Asya will ensure a smooth path through water, and will be the perfect home away from home in all sea conditions. Two MTU diesel engines 1359hp, will allow her to reach a maximum speed of 15 knots, and at 12 knots will allow her to have a range of 4,000 nautical miles.
