Heesen Yachts is pleased to announce that the new 50m semi-displacement all-aluminium motor yacht Project ALBA, also known as YN 18050, has been successfully sold. Mixing up speed and space, sportiness and elegance, Project ALBA is expected to splash in January 2018.
The highly distinctive profile of the vessel, whose flowing lines are designed by Dutch studio Omega Architects, sports continuous sheets of triple laminated glazing that are thermo-bonded to the superstructure to create a sleek, seamless wall of windows.
The striking contemporary design of Project ALBA comes from the drawing board of Francesco Paszkowski. He said: “The interior design we created with Margherita Casprini for this new 50m combines contemporary aesthetics with a classic layout to reflect Heesen’s heritage. We played with contrasting colours, light and dark, and lacquered surfaces and finishes to further emphasise the airy brightness of the interior. Natural leather and stone were selected to create a warm and welcoming ambience and provide a coherent style throughout the yacht.”
The superb interiors can sleep up to twelve guests in six luxurious staterooms. The master suite is traditionally positioned on the main deck forward and is fitted with a full-beam bathroom with shower stall and bath tub. The lower deck hosts the remaining guest cabins. There is a VIP full beam suite aft, the two doubles are amidships, and the twins forward. All cabins have en-suite shower rooms.
Luxury yacht Project ALBA boasts the largest volume of any vessel of her size and still delivers an amazing maximum speed of 23 knots, thanks to two high power-to-weight ratio MTU 2,880kW engines, mixed up with Heesen’s acknowledged expertise in weight reduction.
