The leading Dutch builder, Heesen Yachts, has successfully sold its motor yacht Project Paloma (YN 16551). Project Paloma superyacht is a spectacular, 51-metre displacement, long-range vessel, boasting a steel round-bilge hull form and aluminium superstructure. She is scheduled for delivery in 2014.
Frank Laupman, from Omega Architects, who designed the exterior lines of the luxury superyacht Project Paloma, comments: “My design for this Heesen project is the logical development in design language following on from the lines of ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘SKY’. We allocated a considerable amount of space to the exterior decks: the plan is strongly rational with an interesting inside-outside relationship.”
The 51m Project Paloma yacht can accommodate 12 guests in five cabins, comprising two twins and two doubles located on the lower deck with the Owner’s suite located on the main deck forward. The sun deck is partially enclosed by rounded windows on its forward side. Here, the Owner and his guests can enjoy an alfresco dinner, or lounge on the sunbathing area aft that surrounds a massive rectangular Spa Pool.
Luxury yacht Project Paloma (YN 16551) will be powered by a pair of MTU 12V4000 M53 diesel engines driving twin propellers, which can power it to a maximum speed of over 15,6 knots.
The Owner has appointed Laupman to undertake the interior design which will be finalised in the next few months.
