YN 18950 Project Aquamarine, Heesen’s first yacht in the new 5000 Aluminum Class, is now under construction at the Heesen yard. According to a company press release, the fast-cruising aluminum motor yacht features a hull with a raised transom and incorporated propeller tunnels that increase efficiency by 12 percent and decrease the draft to 2.15m.
The use of MTU’s new 16V4000M65L green oceanic engines, designed to operate with a Selective Catalytic Reduction unit to reduce NOx emissions, makes Aquamarine the first fast-cruising yacht below 500GT to be IMO Tier III compliant, according to the company.
Project Aquamarine is available for delivery in January 2021. For more information, visit heesenyachts.com.
