Project: Heysea 126 Asteria

Chinese yard Heysea Yachts has confirmed that it has taken an order for a new 126 Asteria super yacht.  Due to launch in January 2019 with delivery later that year, this in-house design will be built from a fiberglass hull and superstructure with a beam of over seven meters, which will give a total interior volume of 270 GT.  Accommodation is for up to eight guests split between four cabins, including a main deck owner’s suite. On the lower deck, a full-beam VIP sits just aft of the port-side twin and starboard double cabin. The crew quarters are situated in the bow and allow for a staff of up to five people, with a crew mess and double cabin for the captain.  Key features include a Cabana-style beach club complete with day-head, and a large aft deck, which is split between sunbathing space aft and sheltered dining space further forward.  Moving inside and the open-plan saloon comprises an eight-person dining table, L-shaped settee and a bar area with three stools. However, the star of the show is the spacious super yacht sundeck this area will be fitted with a tender davit, spa pool, dining table, barbecue, bar area and a C-shaped settee, with enough room leftover for three sun-loungers to be placed back aft.  The Heysea 126 Asteria will be powered by a pair of 1925hp Caterpillar engines for a top speed of 22 knots and comfortable cruising at 19 knots. When trimmed back to an economic speed of ten knots, the Heysea 126 Asteria will have a cruising range of 1,200 nautical miles, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 13500 liters.
