Heesen’s YN 18650, Project Boreas, was recently launched and is on target for an August delivery to the owner, according to a company statement.
The 164-foot (50m) aluminum motor yacht is just under 500 GT with a fast displacement hull and draft of 7 feet (2.15m). Construction, begun on spec, was based on the design and engineering platform of Nova Plus.
Frank Laupman of Omega Architects designed the contemporary exterior, while Mark Whitely created the interior in collaboration with the experienced owner, who stepped into the project one year into construction.
MCM, which served as the owner’s representative, stated that this vessel is its second major project for this owner.
