Heysea Yachts has recently launched its first Asteria 96 yacht. A high-performance craft, she will be capable of a quick and stable ride while providing a clean and contemporary indoor living space. The first of her kind is due for delivery to a Chinese client in spring 2017.
The Asteria 96 was designed by Australian naval architects David Bentley Yacht Design. The yacht offers accommodation for six guests, split between two guest cabins, each of which can easily be converted to a double bed configuration, and an elegant and comfortable VIP stateroom. The master suite contains a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom, and a separate media room complete with a state-of-the-art entertainment system. The crew quarters provides accommodation for a staff of up to three people.
The interior décor is complemented by an abundance of outdoor relaxation options, including a superyacht sundeck, aft cockpit and foredeck seating area.
Two 1136hp Caterpillar diesel engines allow the 29.26 metre all-GRP yacht to achieve a cruising speed of 16 knots, and a top speed of 20 knots.
A fuel capacity of 5,000 litres should be suitable for longer coastal cruises and for even speedier travel a stabilisation system and engine upgrade, provided as optional extras, will push the yacht to speeds of more than 28 knots.
The Chinese yard is also currently developing the Heysea 115 at 35.1 metres, which will hit the water next year, after launching a 43 metre Heysea catamaran later in 2017.
