The premier Dutch shipyard, Heesen, is excited to announce that the all-new YN 16551 motor yacht ‘My Sky’ was launched at their facility in Oss on January 31, 2014. Superyacht ‘My Sky’ is scheduled for delivery to her Owners in November 2014, following her intensive sea trials in the North Sea.
Luxury yacht ‘My Sky’ is a 51m full displacement long range motor yacht of 600GT with a range of 5.400Nm at 10 knots. Her bold but sleek exterior is due to Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. Flush mounted tinted windows thermo bonded to the superstructure create a continuous wall of glass that gives this vessel a very distinctive look.
World renowned architect Erick van Egeraat designed the ultra-contemporary, sharp and sophisticated interior of ‘My Sky’ superyacht. Emphasizing a strong contrast between dark and light throughout the yacht, a homogenous and luxurious atmosphere is created; combining crisp white leather with dark high-gloss Makassar wood and showing beautiful natural stone inlay patterns of spectacularly patterned back-lit white onyx into a black marble base.
My Sky yacht accommodates 12 guests in five cabins. The spacious full beam master suite is located on the main deck forward and boasts a large bathroom including a full natural stone clad steam shower and a spacious walk-in closet. The four guest cabins are located on the lower deck.
Guests will enjoy life at sea in five different areas: The main saloon aft, with its large circular dining, lounge and bar area with a 6m2 LED screen, connects to the main deck aft, which organizes built-in settees and seats around two low coffee tables. The upper deck lounge, with its 270 degrees view and circular seating area, opens onto the aft terrace, accommodating a large dining table ideal for al fresco dining, even under way. Finally, the Sundeck’s large Spa Pool, surrounded by sun-pads to aft, is perfect for total relaxation.
As for the touch-and-go helicopter pad at the bridge, it turns into a large sun terrace providing secluded lounging even when My Sky yacht is docked stern into the marinas.
