Heesen Yachts announced that following the launching and delivery of hull number 14647, M/Y 4YOU, other sizable hulls were repositioned within the shipyard in Oss. The outfitting of hull number 14955 has also been started in Building Hall 7, while hull number 15250 was moved into Building Hall 1 for completion.

M/Y 4YOU

Following intensive sea trials in the North Sea Heesen Yachts announced that the delivery of 4YOU has been done. The 47-metre is a sister-ship of hull number 12947, M/Y Sirocco, (launched in 2006) and hull number 14247, M/Y Celestial Hope (launched in 2008). Her interior design has been conceived by Omega Architects, who created a fresh contemporary style rich yet understated with clean lines and luxurious details.

Guests arriving on the main deck aft are welcomed into the vast main saloon, passing first through an art-embellished lobby. This leads on into a social area furnished with coffee tables, armchairs and pouffes where an eight-seater table, custom made from American walnut and topped with leather, is inlaid with intricate patterns of matt silver. The room’s soft color palette, focuses on tones of beige and taupe set against the pale background of a creamy silk carpet, while the use of semi-gloss varnish also contributes to the relaxed and cool atmosphere.

Guests can also enjoy the second saloon on the upper deck, where a brightly lit sky lounge offers three comfortable sofas and a choice of poufs that can also serve as coffee tables. Here, guests can enjoy live music from a baby-grand piano that dominates the aft portion of the room, while the plasma screen is hidden by a unique piece of art deco-inspired art, made by Dutch glass maker Glass Déco, this combines several panels of glass, delicately colored in pale blue and light gold, to create a marine scene.

A further example of inlaid stainless steel can be seen in the doors of a dark wood cabinet. An elegant full-service bar topped with American walnut and white Carrara marble is positioned aft, adjacent to the sliding doors that give access to the aft portion of the bridge deck; where the primary function is open air dining. One deck above is the sundeck whose center portion, like 4YOU’s sister-ship Sirocco, can be partially enclosed. This deck offers an open-air fitness center and a spa pool area that can be fully covered by an awning supported by carbon fiber retractable pillars.

Eight guests can be accommodated on the lower deck in four cabins, of which two are twins and two are VIP doubles. Located forward on the main deck, the master suite is entered through the owner’s office and leads on through a pair of walk-in wardrobes to the master bedroom, which occupies the yacht’s full beam.

Hull Number 15250

In October the first yacht in the new 5000 class hull number 15250, a semi-displacement 50-meter motor-yacht of below 500GT was moved from Building Hall 6, where the hull was welded, into Building Hall 1, where she will be completed. Her interior, conceived by the renowned French designer Rémi Tessier, is in minimalist style, while remaining totally luxurious. This yacht is due to be launched in 2011.

The second yacht in this class (Hull Number 15850) is already in production and the superstructure will be joined to its hull at the beginning in January 2010.

Hull Number 14955

The fully customized 55-meter semi-displacement motor yacht, Hull Number 14955 has been moved into Building Hall 7 for completion. This represents the biggest yacht to be built at Heesen to date. Powered by a pair of MTU 20V 4000 M93 diesel engines, each developing 5,600hp and each driving a five-blade propeller, she will reach the remarkable speed of 24 knots. This performance is, in part, due to Heesen’s in-house Naval Architecture Department who conceived innovative hull lines with a large flare rising up to the chine that deflects spray and improves the sea-keeping ability of the vessel. Drawn by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, the exterior styling of this yacht is characterized by two main features the huge windows with arched tops and bottoms, positioned amidships, that draw in extraordinary amounts of light while providing the guests with wide vistas, and the unique rounded and cantilevered side-deck balconies that extend from the owner’s suite.

The futuristic interior design sprung from the creative genius of Ken Freivokh Design which, among other stunning details, sports a triple height atrium with glass lift, steps and walls, and a waterfall that tumbles from the sundeck pool into a second custom-built pool located on the bridge deck aft.

Another interesting feature on this fully custom 55-meter that is due for launch in 2011 is the ‘wet dock’ in the stern tender garage that allows the tender and the water toys to be floated in, before the dock is drained.
