Heesen has unveiled a new 57m/187ft luxury yacht concept named PROJECT AKIRA, an all-aluminium 5700 ALUMINIUM model boasting the design talents of Omega Architects and Harrison Eidsgaard, who worked on the exteriors and interiors respectively. Heesen has also announced the sale of an exciting new project, named SKYFALL… you can read about it here.
The interior volume comes to 780 GT and her engines provide a maximum speed of 22 knots. Concept images show a vertical bow and strong modern lines in the gunwales and seamless convex appearance of the hull. Full-height windows are used for seamless views of the surroundings from the interiors across the decks, and from the main deck upwards the guest spaces are flooded with natural light during the daytime hours.
The exteriors boast plenty of alfresco living areas, starting with a broad and deep swim platform for spreading out with water toys or resting on sun loungers. The main deck aft, upper deck aft and sundeck all have options for alfresco dining and unwinding outdoors, the latter also hosting a forward Jacuzzi. The foredeck meanwhile offers a quiet cosy C-shaped sofa and drinks table for couples to take in the sunset, and farther down on the bow there is storage for the tenders and large motorised water toys to increase guest space on the lower deck.
