The respected Dutch shipyard, Heesen Yachts, is delighted to report that the hull and superstructure of the 50m motor yacht Project Azuro (YN 16650) were joined together on Saturday, 1st December at the yard’s facility in Oss, the Netherlands. The construction of Project Azuro superyacht is progressing as planned. She is scheduled for delivery in Spring 2014.
Luxury yacht Project Azuro is the fourth in the 50-metre all-aluminium class. The first vessel in the class was the multi-award winning MY Satori (YN 15250), followed by luxury yacht YN 15850 (2011) and superyacht Project Ventura (YN 16050), which is currently under construction and due for delivery in 2013.
Azuro superyacht has three outdoor areas including dining options on both the upper and main decks as well as on the foredeck. Integrated seating and a quadruple sunpad provide privacy when berthed stern-to in port. Glazed doors between the main saloon and aft deck open to create a huge continuous 25 metre entertaining area.
On the upper deck, half of the spectacular sky-lounge is surrounded by glass with doors that retract to create a covered indoor/outdoor lounge and dining terrace. The current accommodation layout is for ten guests with a full-beam master suite and study on the main deck. A full-beam VIP, two double and two twin cabins are on the lower deck.
In the next seventeen months the stunning interior of the Project Azuro yacht by Francesco Paszkowski Design will be fitted out. More details about the interior decoration will be released in due course.
The exciting Project Azuro yacht is currently being undertaken by the team at Heesen, and would be the perfect chance for a potential owner to acquire a unique brand new yacht as soon as 2014.
