Heesen Yachts has announced the sale of YN 17755, also known as Project Alida.
Measuring 55m, Project Alida is a fast-displacement, steel-hulled motoryacht, said to combine “efficiency, performance and elegance”, according to a press release from Heesen.
Omega Architects was responsible for the exterior design, which features floor-to-ceiling windows in the sky lounge, to create a flow between indoor and outdoor spaces. The in-house team at Heesen also collaborated with Omega on exterior design, creating clean, muscular lines, “so nothing comes between the guests and breath-taking views.”
Miami studio RADYCA created her interiors, working closely with Heesen to incorporate the client’s taste into her design, with the aim of creating a sophisticated, tailor-made, unique experience with a focus on simplicty, warmth and comfort.
Her owner is described as an experienced boater “who understands the need for luxury, relaxation and entertainment while yachting.” The interior features neutral hues including open-grain white oak, taupe and grey leathers, along with white arabescato and grecale brown marble slabs.
Accommodation is available in six staterooms, with five guest cabins located on the lower deck, one of which is a full beam VIP. The master suite is then located on the main deck forward.
Project Alida includes a beach club set into the lazarette, enabling guests and owners to relax near the water.
Alida is able to reach a top speed of 16 knots, and cruising range of 4,500nm at 13 knots, and 5,400nm at 12 knots. She will now undergo intensive sea trials in the North Sea, before being delivered to her new owners in July 2017.
