New Model: Heesen 51m YN 18151

Heesen has recently delivered YN 18151 the new 51 meter title M/Y Irisha.  This unique yacht was sold by SuperYachtsMonaco who represented the commercial interest of the owner throughout the build.  Heesen YN18151 unique exterior lines and interior are by Harrison Eidsgaard. This full-custom yacht incorporates elements of Heesen’s DNA: she is a full-aluminium, semi-displacement motor yacht below the 500 gross tonnage threshold that allows for fast cruising.  The owner’s brief called for a yacht that had to be unique in its looks. The proven engineering platform of the 5000 Aluminium class offered the perfect opportunity to give the designers ability to create a radical profile and to deliver the safety of a proven and efficient hard-chine hull.  Powered by two MTU 4613hp diesel engines exceeded expectations during the sea trials by achieving a top speed of 26.1 knots and a transatlantic range of over 3,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.  The Harrison Eidsgaard team devised innovative exterior lines enhanced by the extensive use of double curved glazed glass that gives the yacht the appearance of a fighter jet. The unique color scheme enriches the beauty of the profile. The top is Snow White, the main deck is Midnight Blue by Awlgrip, and the hull is metallic Pacific Blue custom paint by Alexseal. In sunlight, the hull color changes from metallic blue to dark olive-green hues.  Heesen YN 18151 profile looks as cool at night as in the daylight. Concealed LED strips trace the lines of her profile, flooding the glass surfaces with light, and emphasizing the clean design.  The interior design is inviting and relaxing with a neutral palette of beige, grey and blue. Walls and surfaces are covered with textured materials that catch and reflect the light in different ways creating a sense of warm luxury throughout the yacht. The architecture of the interior is emphasized by the accurate light design. Four different settings are conceived to draw the eye to the architectural and design elements, harmonizing the design of each room, and creating different atmospheres at the touch of a button.
