Following extensive sea trials in the North Sea, Heesen Yachts delivered the 51-metre full-custom motor yacht YN 18151 Irisha, that was sold by SuperYachtsMonaco who represented the commercial interest of the owner throughout the build. Designed by Harrison Eidsgaard, the full-custom yacht incorporates elements of Heesen’s DNA: she is a full-aluminium, semi-displacement motor vessel below the 500GT threshold that allows for fast cruising.
Irisha boasts the unique look with a radical profile and exquisite color scheme. The top is Snow White, the main deck is Midnight Blue by Awlgrip, and the hull is metallic Pacific Blue custom paint by Alexseal. In sunlight, the hull color changes from metallic blue to dark olive-green hues. Concealed LED strips trace the lines of her profile, flooding the glass surfaces with light, and emphasising the clean design.
The interior is characterized by a neutral palette of beige, grey and blue. Walls and surfaces are clad in textured materials that catch and reflect the light in different ways. The yacht accommodates ten guests and nine crew.
The main deck seamlessly connects indoor and outdoor. Sliding glass doors protect the aft deck which becomes a ‘winter garden’. When the doors between the ‘winter garden’ and the dining saloon are open, the space can be transformed into a stunning 8-metre long saloon which features imperial dining table that seats from 14 up to an impressive 22 guests.
The owner’s stateroom is accessed via the private study furnished with an exquisite cantilevered, custom-designed desk and features a French balcony with sliding glass doors. The bedhead is a hand-felted silk artwork by Claudy Jongstra. His and hers walk-in dressing rooms with wash basins lead into the shared bathroom, with a central freestanding wengé bathtub and double therapy shower.
The double curved staircase is not only a beautiful design feature, but also a cleverly engineered piece of art that connects the three decks. The guest suites are located on the lower deck. Two doubles and two twins, with the option of converting the twins into a double. With the help of a sliding partition, the twin rooms can be transformed into a full-beam VIP suite with double bed and sofa corner.
The upper deck features floor-to-ceiling structural glass and the sky lounge is fitted with a cinema screen and projector located opposite the U-shaped lounge sofa and armchairs and is served by a wet bar. A built-in lounge chair next to the large window is the perfect spot for reading and relaxing with breathtaking views. The terrace on the upper deck aft is conceived for informal dining and complemented by a comfortable built-in seating area located aft.
The 13-metre long sun deck boasts a sunbathing area aft of the hot tub and an adjacent seating area with an adjustable dining table for informal dining, while forward there is a bar with high stools. Forward on the main deck, a built-in settee is protected by a hydraulically driven canopy that creates a wind-sheltered outdoor space.
Irisha is powered by two MTU 16V 4000 M93L diesel engines that allow her to achieve a top speed of 26.1 knots and a transatlantic range of over 3,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.
The yacht is available for charter in the Mediterranean via SuperYachtsMonaco and will make her official début at the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2018.
