Heesen Launches YN 18650 Project Boreas

2 MINUTES READ

Full-aluminium Fast Displacement Hull Form

Project Boreas is a 50-metre full-aluminium motor yacht just below the 500GT threshold. Her construction was begun on speculation and is based on the design and engineering platform of Nova Plus, offering fast yet very efficient performance thanks to her slippery Fast Displacement Hull Form which has a draft of just 2.15 metres.Frank Laupman of Omega Architects is responsible for the contemporary exterior design, while Mark Whiteley worked closely with the experienced Owner to create an elegant yet warm interior design. Project Boreas is a brilliant illustration of how a discerning client can personalise the pre-engineered design platform of a hull already in construction, considerably shortening the delivery time.

Heesen Boreas
Powered by twin MTU 12V 2000 M72 engines, Project Boreas will reach a top speed of nearly 20 knots

The owner infused his personal touch in many details to increase the connection with the outdoors. For example, the smaller overhangs of the superstructure allow plenty of natural light into the interior. Glass panels with integrated blinds have been incorporated in the roof of the sundeck to allow more light on this area. An Isinglass (clear vinyl) screen completely protects the sundeck from the wind without impeding the views. Large openable windows in the sky lounge allow plenty of fresh air indoors and are controllable remotely. In addition to the gym located on the lower deck, the owner and his guests can enjoy exercising on the fixed swim platform where two Technogym running machines are rigged on each side of a wide staircase that leads to the main deck aft. Twelve guests sleep in six cabins. The Owner’s stateroom is located forward on the main deck. On the lower deck, five suites accommodate the remaining guests.
