Heesen delivers White – 5000 Aluminium

2 MINUTES READ

Award-winning motor yacht

At 50 metres, with a Gross Tonnage just below the 500GT threshold, this semi-displacement motor yacht is the latest in the award-winning 5000 Aluminium class. The exterior lines are by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, while Cristiano Gatto was responsible for the interior design. Extensive sea trials took place on the North Sea in good weather conditions, with waves up to half a metre. Seventh in the 5000 Aluminium class, White proved to be very responsive during her sea trials, reacting to steering commands instantaneously thanks to the large rudders in conjunction with the power steering unit. Her powerful bow thruster in combination with the propellers optimized for her speed range, allow the vessel to be manoeuvered with confidence in close quarters even in windy conditions. Heesen’s acknowledged expertise in weight reduction, combined with two high power-to-weight ratio MTU 2,880kW engines, has proved to be a winning formula once again.

Heesen White Sea Trials
The maximum contractual speed of 23 knots was largely exceeded, while at the same time vibration tests proved White to be extremely quiet

At a cruising speed of 11 knots, the yacht has a transatlantic range of 3,100 nautical miles. Abberley Luxury Yachts, which represented the Owner’s commercial interests during the construction, commented: ‘This is the moment we have been looking forward to, and the most satisfying stage of the process for us. We are delighted with the results of White’s sea trials and await the shakedown cruise with her Owners with much anticipation. We are positive that she will bring them many years of wonderful adventures at sea.’ Heesen’s Board of Directors comments: ‘White is a beautiful addition to the successful 5000 Aluminium class, which delivers the ultimate combination of performance and efficiency. We are also extremely pleased with the open collaboration and mutual trust we developed with Abberley Yachts, with whom we worked for the first time.’
