Dutch shipyard Heesen has announced the sale of 50m/164ft motor yacht YN 18750 or PROJECT ASTER, from its 5000 Aluminium series. M/Y PROJECT ASTER represents the third sale for the shipyard this year and having been built on speculation, the new Owner can expect to receive her in time for summer 2019.
Amenities are placed across five decks and are balanced between indoor and outdoor areas, the former being the work of Cristiano Gatto and the latter completed by Omega Architects. The accommodation layout places five en-suite staterooms on the lower deck, while the main deck forward hosts a Master stateroom. There is a nice crew to take care of 12 guests while cruising and provide efficient service during dockside events.
Twin MTU 16V 4000 engines create a top speed of 23 knots, a cruising speed of 11 knots and a range of 3,100 nautical miles with her efficient semi-displacement hull.
