On April the 14th, Heesen Shipyard launched its amazing 49.8m superyacht Project Nova, which has been named HOME. One of the most expected superyacht launches of 2017, Project Nova has also known as the first Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) superyacht equipped with hybrid propulsion. This ultra efficient luxury vessel offers low fuel consumption with an extended range. HOME is powered by two 804hp MTU 12V 2000 M61s engines, and she will be able to reach a top speed of 16 knots. Another key feature is her silent cruising at a speed of 9 knots provided by the diesel propulsion electric system. Home’s Naval architecture is by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.
Her eye-catching superstructure was designed by Heesen in collaboration with Omega Architects. Frank Laupman of Omega Architects mentioned that the extensive use of glass and cutaway bulwarks would provide plenty of natural light onboard this “more like a beach villa in style” superyacht.
HOME’s Owner invited reputable Italian designers of Cristiano Gatto to work on the interior styling. The designers’ goal was to create a modern minimalist interior styling. Light and relaxing ambience on board was created by using a two-tone colour palette. Some design elements include deep red and burgundy colours, lavish materials and geometrical patterns.
The main deck of luxury yacht HOME features a large main salon with lavish seating and a stunning dining area for 1o guests. There is also an owner’s suite on the main deck, which includes an office and walk-in wardrobes.
The lower deck’s layout comprises of five lavish guest cabins and fully equipped gymnasium. Imposing motor yacht HOME offers a huge wet bar and a spa pool located on the sundeck. The upper deck includes a lounge with beautiful furnishing and an alfresco dining area on the aft.
Motor yacht HOME is scheduled for delivery this summer and is expected to make her appearance at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
