Heesen Yachts launched M/Y Monaco Wolf in March.Apr 29, 2014 by Triton Staff
“The Heesen production team was on hand for the launching and it was a privilege to meet them in person,” said Rupert Nelson, a director at Burgess.
“So often we meet the project front men and women, but it is equally important to know the production team – especially where there are shortened delivery schedules. Their support is crucial during the final stages prior to delivery,” he said.
Equipped with MTU engines, the yacht has top speed of 23 knots and a range of over 3,100nm. Designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, the hull has the Heesen reverse sheer ‘pelican beak’ bow. Interior design is by Italian designer Francesco Paszkwski.
“I am very pleased to have had the chance to work with Heesen again. I like the way they challenge the designers while working on the project and defining its details. The result is a virtuous circle that combines technical and safety aspects with design and style, while keeping Heesen’s outstanding quality standards and our proposals. Team work played a crucial role in bringing this project to fruition,” Paszkowski said.
M/Y Monaco Wolf also offers safe passage for canine companions. The yacht will be tested in the North Sea before being delivered to the owners at the end of May.
