Aquamarine: Heesen’s Newest Fast-Cruising, All-Aluminium Motor Yacht
Luxury yacht builder Heesen, has introduced its first yacht in its newly designed, 5000 Aluminium Class. This stunning luxury motor yacht is named – Aquamarine.
Aquamarine features a brand new hull with a design from its talented, in-house naval architects. It becomes the newest fast-cruising, all-aluminium motor yacht by Heesen. In addition, the company worked very closely with Van Oossanen Naval Architects, who are renowned hydrodynamicists.
An efficiency gain of 12% is obtained by the optimization of the hull design. By raising the transom and making it sleeker, the 12% percent end result became achievable. Plus the propeller tunnels are incorporated into the sleek hull.
Thanks to the optimized hull design, it became possible to install MTU’s new 16V4000M65L green oceanic engines. They are specially designed to operate with an SCR unit (Selective Catalytic Reduction). The result is a reduction in NOx emissions. Therefore, Heesen’s Aquamarine is the first fast-cruising yacht below 500GT to be IMO Tier III compliant. It is a proud accomplishment by Neesen.
The yacht’s draft is reduced to only 2.15 meters by featuring raised propellers. As a result, the shallow draft makes Aquamarine the perfect yacht for cruising in the Bahamas. Also the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean is also achievable. A pair of interceptors will guarantee optimal dynamic trim at high speeds.
Heesen’s new 5000 Aluminium Class reduces the carbon footprint without compromising on speed or performance. Thus the installation of soot filters on the generators, also makes the package complete.
The Omega Architects design creates a clean and modern profile. As a result, Aquamarine becomes a progressive, technological masterpiece. As an example, the raised aft deck allows for a full height multi-purpose tender garage that doubles as a luxury beach club. Plus you get a deck complete with sun pads.
Since the aft deck connects to the flush swim platform, guest are much closer to the water. It delivers a rewarding water experience. In addition, the rescue tender is conveniently stored under a hatch in front of the wheelhouse. This delivers a clean profile line.
With a total of 5 cabins, Aquamarine can accommodate up to 12 guests. This makes it perfect for both intimate and large group parties.
