Heesen’s Amore Mio sets off on maiden voyage

Amore Mio, the 45m Heesen superyacht, has been delivered and is currently on her maiden voyage to Gibraltar. Labelled ‘the largest and most powerful sports yacht ever built in the Netherlands’, she has now been handed over to her international owners as scheduled.

She spent her sea trial period out on the North Sea, where the yacht proved capable of racing along at 30 knots whilst her gyro stabilisers were able to perform in such a way that guests and crew would remain comfortable should conditions turn unfavourable.

Tripp Hock, captain of Amore Mio commented, “As the first Heesen sea trialled at ‘light load’, I was eager to see in particular how the gyro stabilisers would function on such a buoyant ship in the North Sea. To my relief, all the coffee cups stayed on the tables.”

Omega Architects were in charge of the sharp, sporty exterior of Amore Mio whose 30-knot top speed is balanced by a cruising range of 2,750nm at 12 knots. 

Her internal design comes from Christiano Gatto, and is reported to be a blend of style and sophistication, with luxurious fabrics and warm wood panelling. 

Featuring a traditional five-cabin layout, the grand master suite is found forward on the main deck, with two double and two twin cabins on the lower deck.
