Heesen begins construction on first 50 metre 5000 Aluminium class superyacht

Heesen has begun construction on the first superyacht in its new 5000 Aluminium class, which is currently due for a 2021 delivery.

Currently known as Project Aquamarine, the 50 metre yacht will be the first fast-cruising yacht below 500GT to be IMO Tier III compliant, according to the yard.

The all-aluminium motor yacht will feature a brand new hull design developed by Heesen’s in-house naval architects in collaboration with Van Oossanen Naval Architects.

The inclusion of raised propellers will consequently reduce the yacht’s draft to just 2.15 metres, making Project Aquamarine “the perfect yacht for cruising the Bahamas, as well as the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean,” the yard said.

Heesen revealed the hull design had been optimised by Van Oossanen before a 1:16 model was put to the test at the Southampton-based Wolfson Unit.

Key features will include a raised aft deck fitted with sunpads and a full height tender garage that will double as a luxury beach club with a flush swim platform. An additional rescue tender will be stored under a hatch at the front of the wheelhouse.

The Japanese-inspired interior design, meanwhile, will be handled by Cristiano Gatto. Accommodation will be for a total of 12 guests in four lower deck guest suits and a main deck master stateroom.

Project Aquamarine’s propulsion package will consist of MTU 16V4000M65L green oceanic engines, which have been specially designed to reduce emissions. Project Aquamarine will have a top speed of 23 knots and range of 3,100 nautical miles at 11 knots.
