Luxury yacht brand Heesen recently announced that their Project Aster model was launched from their Danish shipyard in Oss. The launch occurred on Friday April 5th. Also known as YN 18750, the new luxury yacht was named Masa by its new owner, during a private ceremony.
Owning a luxury yacht has long been a dream for many people. Enjoying a VIP experience on the open seas is amazing. Owners feel the independence from life’s high stress and leave all their worries behind.
This new luxury yacht in the 5000 Aluminium Class sports a unique name. “Masa” translates to my diamond – a diamond in its purest form. One that symbolizes the highest form of royalty. As a result, the name perfectly fits this elegant yacht, the eighth in 5000 Aluminium Class.
This yacht class continues to prove to be one of the most successful in Heesen’s extensive yacht range. She represents the pinnacle of Heesen’s expertise in building sporty, lithe and graceful semi-displacement motor yachts.
The interior design by Cristiano Gatto celebrates the lineage of her forebears. The décor is fresh and elegant. Plus it beautifully combines a light palette of colours with silver to create an atmosphere throughout the yacht that exudes tranquillity.
Plus, the versatile layout comprises five lower deck suites and a master stateroom on the main deck forward, giving capacity for twelve guests serviced by nine crew.
Masa’s exterior lines are designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. The sleek design embodies Heesen’s DNA: the pelican-beak bow with reverse sheer and the sporty mast give Masa a very distinctive look.
But Masa’s beauty does not lie exclusively in her aesthetics. For example, her 50m all-aluminium semi-displacement hull has been designed, engineered and welded by Heesen’s in-house team. Therefore, it results in the smallest tolerances.
With considered naval architecture and precision, lightweight aluminium construction, Masa will reach a rapid top speed of 23 knots thanks to two MTU 16V 4000 diesel engines. At 50 metres and coming in below 500GT, Masa perfectly combines performance, comfort, space and refined luxury.
After launching, Masa will remain in the shipyard’s harbour basin for the final elements of construction and the commissioning of her systems. For her maiden voyage, Masa will then cruise to Hellevoetsluis where she will begin her rigorous sea trials and official tests before final handover to her owners in June 2019.
