Heesen launched White
Highly sophisticated yacht
Heesen announced that YN 18250 – formerly known as Project Ayla – was launched at the shipyard in Oss. Her Owners christened their new yacht White. At 50 metres, with a Gross Tonnage below the 500GT threshold, White is a gorgeous addition to the successful 5000 Aluminium class whose exterior lines are by Frank Laupman at Omega Architects. 18250 originally began on speculation, but was bought one year into construction. Thanks to the flexible interior design by Cristiano Gatto, the Owners were able to work with the Italian designer to personalise their new yacht according to their own taste and lifestyle. Gatto created bespoke pieces of furniture for the main saloon and sky lounge, which are both exquisite and highly distinctive additions to White’s interior. A sense of space and relaxation is the key-theme throughout the yacht, both inside in private and social areas, and outside where fabrics from Hermès have been used for the decoration. White will be intensively tested in the North Sea and will be delivered to her owners in April 2018.
