Super-efficient Heesen MY Ela Heads to Med

2 MINUTES READ

Heesen announced the delivery of YN 19550 MY Ela, formerly known as Project Altea

At 50 metres overall with a lightweight, aluminium, fast-displacement hull, she is the second in Heesen’s sub-500GT Nova Plus class, a design that emphasizes performance and efficiency, powered by twin MTU 2000-series M72 V12s. Her remarkable maximum speed of just under 20 knots, frugal fuel consumption, and a draft of just 2.15 metres, makes her the most efficient yacht of her type built in the Netherlands.

A distinguished yacht with a striking profile characterized by a vertical bow and bold spray rails, along with her Dutch pedigree as a guarantee of premium quality, Ela was also available with a remarkably short delivery time when she caught the attention of her owners. With just three months between purchase and delivery they worked with interior designer Cristiano Gatto and the Heesen team to personalize the yacht to suit their family requirements.

Ela’s twelve guests are accommodated in six staterooms, with the owners’ suite on the main deck forward and the remaining five cabins – a full beam VIP, two doubles and two twins – on the lower deck. Besides the beauty of her design, MY Ela is also the first Heesen to sport a peak-shaving battery system. ‘This, in my opinion, makes the yacht genuinely efficient and more sustainable,’ said Peter van der Zanden, head of Design & Development at the shipyard.
