Luxury yacht PROJECT GEMINI, also known as HULL YN 19755, is the latest of the 55M Steel Class from Dutch shipyard Heesen currently under construction under speculation, and she follows on from successful sister ships SOLEMATES (ex. DIOSCURI CASTOR) and POLLUX.
M/Y PROJECT GEMINI features an athletic modern exterior Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, while Luca Dini Design & Architecture have been chosen for the sophisticated interior in their first collaboration with Heesen. Tay wood and natural stone complement the marine leather wall panels and doors, and the fabric-lined ceilings add to the sophistication and calm. The main salon has bronze mirrored ceiling panels the emphasise the light and space within, while the lounge area provides sumptuous sofas to gather the whole group together before or after a meal seated at the dining table for 12.
The sky lounge is ideal for laid-back days or effortless entertaining, with its widescreen TV and bar to provide refreshments.
The tenders and water toys are stored on the foredeck, leaving plenty of room in the lower deck stern section for a beach club that incorporates a wellness area.
The exteriors treat everyone to a spacious 110m2/1184ft2 sundeck with a Jacuzzi surrounded by sun pads, a bar, alfresco dining table, a sofa and sun loungers. The bridge deck aft is an alternative alfresco dining and lounging spot with the benefits of the sky lounge close by, and the main deck aft is an excellent place for coffee mornings or an aperitif.
Altogether, there is over 400m2/4305ft2 of luxury areas onboard for both the Owner and guests to enjoy, all contained within a yacht of 760 GT.
The accommodation is designed for up to 12 guests in 6 en-suite cabins, of which there is a stately full-beam Owner’s apartment of 83m2/893.4ft2. Within, the floor-to-ceiling windows are lined by cotton and linen curtains, while the forward walk-in wardrobes connect through to the en-suite bathroom complete with a rain shower and black bathtub centrepiece with a lighting fixture that mirrors its shape.
The other guest cabins consist of a VIP stateroom on the upper deck, and two double cabins and two twin cabins on the lower deck.
A pair of MTU 8V 4000 M63 IMO Tier-III engines will power her through the water for a top speed of 15.5 knots and a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots.
The hull and superstructure will be joined together at the Heesen facility in Oss during March 2021, and she will be available for delivery in autumn 2022.
