Full-custom 51m Irisha

2 MINUTES READ

Yacht with a sense of warm luxury

Heesen delivered 51-metre full-custom motor yacht YN 18151 Irisha following extensive sea trials in the North Sea. Irisha’s unique exterior lines and interior are by Harrison Eidsgaard. This full-custom yacht incorporates elements of Heesen’s DNA: she is a full-aluminium, semi-displacement motor yacht below the 500GT threshold that allows for fast cruising. The owner’s brief called for a yacht that had to be unique in its looks. The proven engineering platform of the 5000 Aluminium class offered the perfect opportunity to give carte blanche to the designers to create a radical profile and to deliver the safety of a proven and efficient hard-chine hull: the best of both worlds! Powered by two MTU 16V 4000 M93L diesel engines, Irisha exceeded expectations during the sea trials by achieving a top speed of 26.1 knots and a transatlantic range of over 3,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.

Concealed LED strips trace the lines of her profile, flooding the glass surfaces with light, and emphasising the clean design

The Harrison Eidsgaard team devised innovative exterior lines enhanced by the extensive use of double curved glazed glass that gives the yacht the appearance of a fighter jet. The unique colour scheme enriches the beauty of the profile. The top is Snow White, the main deck is Midnight Blue by Awlgrip, and the hull is metallic Pacific Blue custom paint by Alexseal. In sunlight, the hull colour changes from metallic blue to dark olive-green hues. The fixed aft platform is another key element of the design, facilitating easy and quick tender boarding when the transom door is closed. The interior layout offers a high degree of versatility and is conceived to meet the need for formal and large receptions, as well as intimate areas for the daily family life on board. Irisha is available for charter via SuperYachtsMonaco www.superyachtsmonaco.com/charter/irisha.
