Heesen announced the delivery of its second yacht this year. Moskito, YN 19255, previously known as Project Pollux is a 55-metre vessel with a Gross Tonnage of 760 GT. Omega Architects-designed exterior lines are characterized by ‘shark-tooth’’superstructure overhangs and vertical windows. The design features the latest iteration of van Oossanen’s ultra-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form. Powered by IMO III-compliant MTU 8V 4000 M63s, it offers economical fuel consumption of just 150 litres per hour at 11 knots.
Her interior design was created by London-based studio Bannenberg & Rowell. The décor combines bold elements paired with casual appeal. Other features to note include softly radiused panelling and an eye-catching bar installation. Moskito features floor-to-ceiling windows and open bulwarks.
After delivery, Moskito will leave for her maiden voyage to Malta. Captain Phil Larkin and his 12 crew will take her non-stop over 2,800 nautical miles via the 81 waypoints of the passage plan.
I have been in this industry for 24 years, 19 as a captain, and have worked with many different shipyards around the world. This is my first experience with Heesen, and I must say I am impressed by their level of professionalism. I want to express particular gratitude to Heesen’s delivery team for their great help in these final stages. We truly enjoyed working with them all, and our professional relationship has been enriched with true friendship. – Captain Larkin
Moskito will be available for charter via International Yacht Collection, in the Mediterranean in summer and in the Caribbean in winter.
