Heesen Yachts Sell Custom 50m

Heesen announced just before Christmas that the contract has been signed for a fully custom 50m (164ft) Superyacht. YN 17350 is the fourth vessel that they have sold in 2012 and their order books run into 2015 with 13 yachts under construction.

The owner has appointed Clifford Denn Design to create the stylish, sporty lines of his new 50m Superyacht, with Van Oossanen Naval Architects and Heesen taking of the naval architecture. She is a round bilge, displacement Superyacht that's below 500GT. She will be powered by two MTU 8V4000 that will take her to a maximum speed of 15kts and at 12kts she will have a transatlantic range of 4,000nm.

She will have some interesting features including a fully inclosed forward garage for tender storage and a very unique bar on the main deck that is half on the aft deck and continues inside to the main saloon to create an inside/outside connection.

She will be able to accommodate 8 guests in three doubles and one twin. The owner will enjoy a traditionally located suite forward on the main deck.
