New Model: Heesen 50m YN 18650 Project Boreas

Heesen has just launched hull number YN 18650 Project Boreas delivered on August 12, 2019, after rigorous sea trials in the North Sea in calm sea conditions with light winds and waves up to half a meter.  Named as M/Y Erica this new 50 meter full aluminium motor yacht sports an ultra-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form  hull designed by Dutch hydro dynamics Van Oossanen and engineered by Heesen’s in-house naval architects. Project Boreas is powered by two MTU 1448hp each, and will offer the full suite of benefits the FDHF hull confers, including a fast but efficient cruising speed and a high degree of comfort.  Indeed, during the sea trials Project Boreas proved to be extremely quiet while also exceeding the contractual speed. She reached a top speed of 20 knots, and showed a range higher than the requirements laid out in her specifications. Thanks to large rudders and a powerful bow thruster, she is also very responsive when maneuvering in close quarters.  Frank Laupman of Omega Architects penned the exterior lines of this Heesen YN 18650 50 meter super yacht and he has created a contemporary profile that retains timeless cues. A gently reversed stem carries the bow to the upper deck line, creating a powerful forward profile which is balanced by elegant profile curves and tapered ends to the decks. A lack of fashion plates creates the illusion of suspended upper decks and hardtop, adding a sense of lightness to the design. Mark Whiteley worked closely with the owner to create a warm contemporary interior design, which features bespoke loose furniture on all exterior living spaces. Among many standout details of the interior, the main staircase will certainly make a strong impression on guests when boarding the yacht. The combination of mesmerizing geometry and precious materials such as a nickel mesh wall covering by French artist Sophie Mallebranche allow guests to move from the lower deck to the bridge deck in style.  YN 18650 is a brilliant illustration of how a discerning client can personalize the pre-engineered design platform of a hull already in construction, considerably shortening the delivery time while benefiting from the highest levels of Dutch quality in build and finish.
