Heesen Yachts is excited to announce that YN 16847 superyacht Project Margarita was sold on May 19, 2014 to a seafaring enthusiast, who is looking forward to cruising with his family in maximum comfort and style. Luxury motor yacht Project Margarita represents the first of the newly styled vessels in the award-winning 47-metre class, a breed of Heesens that are icons of classic contemporary yacht design.
Frank Laupman has created the timeless design of the YN 16847 luxury yacht Project Margarita, a vessel that exudes luxury and elegance in every detail. Contrasting fabrics of silk, wool and linen complement the subtle patterning and rich textures featured in the main saloon, while the walnut floor, oak walls and gloss lacquered ceiling bring an element of gravitas to the interior.
In the sky lounge, large windows stretch luxuriously across the entire length of the saloon creating a light and airy place for relaxation, and yet the bar and home cinema system make this area equally suited for cosy evenings as guests move inside from the terrace. Heesen craftsmanship abounds, right down to the walnut flooring where the grain has been cut to radiate outwards echoing the circular theme.
The master suite, classic in contemporary style, is a true masterpiece with its sumptuous en-suite bathroom with central bathtub and a myriad of marble vanity units, oak panelling, an Art Nouveau custom-created mosaic as the centre panel and a pale travertine marble floor. A large private study and walk-in wardrobe complete the Owner’s private suite.
On the lower deck, Project Margarita superyacht has two double and two twin suites decorated with walnut panels, deep ultra-soft wool carpets and silk textured wallpapers. All en-suite bathrooms have marble walls, limestone floors and contemporary polished steel fittings.
The exterior deck spaces offer the 12 guests many options for enjoying life at sea: an impressive 180 square meters – 85 of which is just on the sundeck! – will be ideal for al fresco dining in four different areas, lounging around the Spa Pool, and sunbathing on the large sun-pads in front of the bridge in peace and quiet, even when docked in harbour stern to.
Zero speed stabilisers will ensure maximum comfort at anchor and the wellengineered round bilge hull with bulbous bow, powered by two MTU 8V 4000 M63, will ensure smooth and safe cruising in all sea conditions and a range of 4.000nm at 12 knots.
Project Margarita yacht will be delivered to her Owners on June 30 2014 after intensive sea trials in the North Sea for summer cruising in the Mediterranean and will be available for inspection at the Monaco Yacht Show next September.
