Heesen Yachts Hand Over 55m "Serenity"

The Dutch shipyard Heesen Yachts have delivered their largest displacement vessel to date. MY Serenity 55m (180ft), launched last December in Oss the Netherlands has been under going intensive sea trials in the rough waters of the North Sea. Hans Doodkorte, Owner's technical manager said;

"We had a typical winter sea trial on the North Sea with force 6-7 winds and 3m swells. It was commented by all onboard how well the boat handled in a big sea. She easily exceeded her design speed so overall I am very happy that we will deliver a yacht that will be well suited for world traveling as she was designed for."

Serenity's elegant exterior lines and her interior design were drawn by the creative pencil of Frank Laupman from Omega Architects. Frank has expressed the typical Hessen style with the "pelican bow" which by now is a trademark of Hessen Yachts, this can be seen in the above image. Serenity's interior is contemporary with classic touches that is made up of luxurious materials such as, maple, eight different types of marble and blond veneer with creamy stones all combining to give a light and airy feel to the spacious interior. This is a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere that is shown in the name that the owner has chosen for the yacht, "Serenity".

She will be able to accommodate 12 guest in 6 cabins which include the owners full beam cabin which is forward on the main deck with full length floor to ceiling windows letting in natural light and balconies on either side. The guest accommodation is on the lower deck with a full beam VIP cabin, 2 double and 2 twin cabins. Guests can enjoy sun or shaded areas around the decks, with sun pads and a fully custom mosaic jacuzzi on the sun deck. There is also a full spa area complete with a steam bath, sauna and a massage room to enjoy.

Serenity will have a maximum speed of 15kts and a range of 6,000nm at 10kts.
