New Model: Heesen 55m YN 17755

Heesen Yachts is proud to announce the delivery of the 55m YN 17755, formerly known as Project Alida. Her new Owners christened her Laurentia.  Heesen YN 17755 combines efficiency, performance and style in a design package of 740 GT, with elegant yet muscular clean lines by Omega Architects. This steel-hulled displacement motor yacht sets a new standard in superyacht performance. During the sea trials, which were held in the North Sea at the beginning of August in moderate sea conditions, YN 17755 exceeded her contractual speed and reached a top speed of 16.6 knots. The vessel proved to be highly responsive, accepting steering commands immediately. The use of large rudders in conjunction with a powerful steering unit makes for a very quick reaction, as does the high pitch of the propellers. The overall effect instils great confidence in the captain when maneuvering in strong wind conditions.  For YN 17755 the owner appointed Ramon Alonso at RADYCA, a Miami-based design firm, to create an interior design that promotes luxury, relaxation and entertainment throughout the yacht.  A consistent use of neutral hues is found in open-grain white oak and different tones of wengĂ©, taupe and grey leathers, wool carpets, and light textured suedes. White Arabescato and Grecale brown marble slabs emphasize the purity of the design.The loose furniture was carefully selected from various European and American brands and each piece was customized to fit perfectly and adapt to the interior scheme. Hand-stitched leather panels and accents play in contrast with the light suedes and dark wengĂ© wood in different tones and finishes.  Laurentia is a fantastic new addition to the fast growing Heesen fleet and will turn heads wherever she cruises!
