Heesen announced the sale of YN 19755 Project Gemini. Arcon Yachts introduced the client and is supervising and project managing the construction of the yacht. The superyacht will be delivered to her owners at the end of October 2022 and will be part of the exclusive Arcon Yachts charter fleet.
With her Dutch pedigree, reduced delivery schedule, large internal volume, and excellent fuel efficiency thanks to her Fast Displacement Hull Form, YN 19755 Project Gemini attracted the attention of her new owners. Negotiations and a sales agreement were soon concluded.
We are delighted to work with Heesen on yet another exciting project. We have been impressed by the flexibility of the shipyard in accommodating the client’s requests, and have enjoyed working with Heesen’s new CCO, Friso Visser, and his experienced team. Heesen’s sales and marketing people provided us with excellent material to help us familiarize our client with this magnificent yacht. And despite the travel restrictions, they managed to arrange a visit for the buyer to see the yacht under construction. This was a crucial experience, as our client was able to appreciate in person the superb levels of organization and quality that this Dutch shipyard delivers. – Konstantin Kolpakov of Arcon Yachts
The yacht’s exterior lines are created by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. To balance outdoor and indoor spaces, there are large floor-to-ceiling windows and open bulwarks.
Twelve guests will be accommodated in six staterooms, with the 82-square-meter owner’s apartment located forward on the main deck, spanning the full beam. Four guest cabins can be found on the lower deck, and there is a private VIP cabin on the bridge deck. Luca Dini Design and Architecture drafted the interior scheme which is characterized by geometric shapes.
Beneath the waterline lies an ultra-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form, the latest variant of van Oossanen’s patented, low-drag design. With two IMO III-compliant MTU 8V 4000 M63 engines, Project Gemini will achieve a remarkable top speed of 15.5 knots, with an impressive trans-oceanic range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots.
