New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine
Heesen Yachts proudly announced the sale of two contracts: a 50-metre fully custom semi-displacement motor yacht and a 47-metre full displacement motor yacht. These are the third and the fourth contracts to be signed at Heesen since the beginning of 2010. Heesen’s order book now consists of fourteen yachts currently in construction, which will be delivered to their owners by the end of 2013. These figures confirm the strength and financial reliability of this world-renowned company.
Y/N 16250 – 50-metre semi-displacement motor yacht.
The contract has been signed thanks to a fruitful collaboration with the Monaco based brokerage house YCO. The YCO broker representing the Buyer commented: “Y/N 16250 is a unique project, for an owner who is an experienced sailor who desires to be deeply involved in the design and conception process of his new vessel.”
Fabio Ermetto, Sales and Marketing Director at Heesen, says: “We feel greatly honoured that the client and YCO chose Heesen Yachts for building this unique semi-displacement vessel.” The exterior lines have created a very clean profile whose straight lines give the yacht an aggressive and muscular look. Peculiarities of the exterior styling are the double-curved convex exterior glass, a convex curved freeboard and a smooth, unbroken outer “shell”.

The level of customization possible on this series (including structural changes to the superstructure) allows owners to create their own unique yacht based on a proven hull design.
