A Dutch ship building company, Heesen Yachts has announced the sale of a Fast Displacement, steel-hulled, 180 feet motor yacht Project Alida, that combines efficiency, performance and elegance in a design package of 740GT. Her new owner, an experienced boater, was introduced to the shipyard by Barin Cardenas of The New Yachts Company, a boutique firm dedicated to new construction, based in Fort Lauderdale, who worked closely with Thom Conboy of Heesen Yachts USA.
The exterior of Project Alida yacht was created by Omega Architects. The full-service architectural design firm has accentuated the indoor-outdoor connection with the help of glass insertions in the bulwarks and the floor-to-ceiling windows in the sky lounge. Vertical windows on the main deck, together with an original “shark tooth” design detail on the overhang of the wheelhouse, provide Project Alida with a bold and distinctive character.
An interior design was done by RADYCA, a Miami based design firm. In close collaboration with the shipyard, they created the refined interiors that match the owner’s pursuit of luxury, relaxation and entertainment while yachting. Contrast is achieved by the consistent use of neutral tones found in open-grain white oak and different tones of wengé, taupe and grey leathers, wool carpets, and light textured suedes. White Arabescato and Grecale brown marble slabs emphasize the purity of the design.
The yacht features six staterooms: five guest cabins on the lower deck – including a full beam VIP – and the master suite traditionally located on the main deck forward. With the tenders stored on the forward deck, a beach club is set into the lazarette that offers owners and guests a fantastic place to relax close to the water.
The progressive hull design devised by van Oossanen Naval Architects and implemented by Heesen in-house engineering team, allows Project Alida to offer frugal fuel consumption coupled with a remarkable range of 4.500nm at 13 knots, while her top speed reaches 16 knots. At 12 knots her range becomes ever more impressive reaching 5.400 nm. Combining magnificent comfort with optimised efficiency throughout the speed spectrum, she sets a new standard in superyacht performance. Project Alida will undergo intensive sea trials in the North Sea prior to delivery to her new owners in time for cruising in July 2017.
