Heesen Yachts Sell Project "Paloma"

Last week Heesen Yachts had some great success when they sold one of their latest projects (YN 16551) 'Paloma', a 51m (167ft) displacement Superyacht. She is due for delivery in 2014 and is a long range yacht with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure.

Frank Laupman, from Omega Architects who designed the exterior lines comments 'My design for this Heesen project is the logical development in design following on from the lines of 'Man of Steel' and 'SKY'. We allocated a considerable amount of space to the exterior decks: the plan is strongly rational with an interesting inside-outside relationship'.

Paloma will be able to accommodate 12 guests in five cabins including two twin and two double cabins on the lower deck, with the owner's suite located forward on the main deck. The sun deck is partially enclosed by rounded windows on the forward side that can be seen in the image above.

She will be powered by a pair of MTU 12V4000 M53 diesel engines that drive twin propellers, which can power her to a maximum speed of over 15.6kts. The owner will also have Frank Laupman to design the interior which will be finalised over the next few months.
