Heesen Yachts has launched its gorgeous YN 17850, known as Project Nova. During a ceremony at the facility in Oss, her owner christened the hybrid superyacht M/Y Home. She is the first of a new breed of Heesens: ultra-efficient, low fuel-burning yacht, and one of the quietest on the oceans. The yacht will remain in the harbor to begin commissioning of her systems, and will then sail to Rotterdam where she will undergo her sea trials and official tests before delivery to her owners in June.
M/Y Home is equipped with two water cooled DC electric shaft motors, each producing 127 kW. Thanks to those she can cruise at 9 knots using the generators alone. The yacht is powered by diesel mechanical and diesel electrical, that can be used either independently or simultaneously, providing less noise and vibration, more flexible power management, and increased efficiency. The Fast Displacement Hull Form of the yacht was devised by Van Oossanen and implemented by Heesen’s in-house naval architects. With a transatlantic range of 3,750nm at a cruising speed of 12 knots, M/Y Home’s top speed is 16.3 knots, achieved with just two MTU 12V, 600 kW each.
The exterior design of the 50m aluminium M/Y Home belongs to Omega Architects and the interior spaces were developed by Cristiano Gatto Design. Her shallow draft of 2.15 meters, allows the yacht to sail in the clear waters of the Bahamas, while her contemporary profile with vertical bow, striking superstructure, spacious aft platform put her in class of her own.
The Italian designer Cristiano Gatto has dressed the interiors in a refined linear design based on a two-tone palette. Fabrics, leathers, and lacquered surfaces are in polar white contrasting with the warmth of the wood. The aesthetic of the interior is sophisticated with deep red and burgundy loose furniture: Paola Lenti outdoor furniture dominates on the decks and in the sky lounge, while a stunning contemporary stainless steel lounge chair by Franco Poli stands out in the main saloon. Dining tables and bars are custom designed by Cristiano Gatto and perfectly executed by the fine carpenters of Heesen Yachts Interiors. To enhance the outdoor-indoor connection the designer brought the exterior teak into the interior to create seamless flow between the upper lounge and the aft deck dining area.
Located on the main deck forward, the Owner’s apartment, includes a private study, a large bathroom with shower stall and a full beam bed room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that give a wonderful sense of en plein air. Guests are accommodated in five luxurious staterooms on the lower deck: two doubles, two twins and one full-beam VIP suite. The wellness area, consists of gymnasium and SPA, is located on the lower deck aft, adjacent to the engine room, and has convenient direct access to the main deck aft through an internal staircase.
