Heesen’s YN 18750 Project Aster has been sold, with the experienced owners introduced by Arcon Yachts. According to a statement from Heesen in December, Project Aster is expected to be delivered in June after sea trials in the North Sea.

Project Aster is a 164-foot (50m) semi-displacement yacht with an aluminum hull, and will be powered by two MTU 16V 4000 engines. It has a beam of 27.8 feet (8.5m) and an 8-foot (2.5m) draft.

According to Heesen, the yacht is expected to have a top speed of 23 knots and a trans-Atlantic range of 3,100nm at a cruising speed of 11 knots. It can accommodate 12 guests in five lower-deck suites and a main-deck master stateroom, and has room for nine crew.

Omega Architects is handling the exterior design, while the interior is being designed by Cristiano Gatto.
