Built on the experience of launching seventeen 44-47metre custom yachts, the hull of this new 50metre is the most efficient on the market. In consultation with Van Oossanen Associates, Heesen’s in-house naval architects created a sophisticated and highly efficient hard-chine hull. When combined with Heesen’s acknowledged weight reduction expertise and a pair of high power-to-weight ratio MTU 2.720kW engines, Satori delivers her stunning top speed as well as a very economical fuel burn, giving a particularly long range of 3.200 NM at 12 knots. Frank Laupman from Omega Architects designed the clean lines of this new 50metre semi-displacement:

The owner appointed the award-winning French designer, Rémi Tessier to create the elegant interior of M/Y Satori.

The yacht Satori will rendezvous with her owner in Monaco for the official christening, which will take place during the Monaco Grand Prix and for applying to be part of “La Belle Classe Superyacht”, a certification created by the Yacht Club de Monaco to unite owners who share similar yachting values. Being a member of “La Belle Classe” is a real commitment to an attitude where courtesy and respect reign, where regatta rhymes with fair-play, naval etiquette with “savoir-vivre” and elegance with spectacle. All members of “La Belle Classe” have shown their desire to be part of this very select Club by signing a charter which represents a genuine commitment and desire to build towards the future.

“La Belle Classe Superyachts” objectives are as follows:

– Respect for Etiquette: by complying with codes and customs which are the true heritage of the Yachting fraternity, taking account of the way a yacht’s owner and crew behave and dress, come to the aid of others, and respect all other yachts whatever the circumstances: these are the rules of courtesy and solidarity between members of “La Belle Classe”.
– Respect for the Environment and the Sea: by adopting an environmentally responsible attitude at all times, to include maintenance (with eco-friendly products) and employing new or existing technologies, such as ecologically sound fuels, hybrid engines, reducing CO2 emissions, the use of Pods to preserve the seabed, and other actions.
– An ability to innovate and embrace new technologies: by producing, adapting, employing and promoting new technologies, elegance and harmony of design, in order to develop Yachting while preserving the environment. Research is vital to the future evolution of this industry.

MY Satori and her owner will be fine additions to this exclusive Club, and exemplify all that is fine and good about yachting.
