Heesen Sell Project Azuro

Heesen Yachts have announced that project Azuro (YN 16650) has been sold, in close collaboration with Burgess, who introduced the client.

Azuro's exterior lines were designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects to give her its iconic reverse sheer "pelican beak" bow. Continuous sheets of laminated triple glazing have been thermo-bonded to the superstructure creating a seamless wall of windows resulting in a fast sporty look.

Guests will enjoy on Azuro in four distinct deck areas that provide a perfect space for every occasion. The 70 sqm sun deck is probably the largest on a yacht of this size, and for privacy in port, there is a lounging area hidden away on the foredeck. The shaded dining area on the upper deck and the main deck terrace combines with the saloon to create 25 sqm of entertaining space.

Azuro has the largest volume of any yacht of her length. Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski created her interior design using just three materials for all interior surfaces: teak, limestone and leather.

Twelve guests will be accommodated in six cabins. The master suite is located traditionally forward on the main deck. Both the bedroom and bathroom are full beam with windows running along their entire length. The other guest cabins are found on the lower deck and include a full beam VIP, two double and two twin cabins.

She will be powered by the latest MTU engines 16V 4000 M73L, which will power her to a top speed of 23kts and a range of over 3,100nm. She will be launched in March and then make her way to the North Sea where she will go through her sea trials before being delivered to her owners at the end of May 2014.
