Heesen delivers Project Boreas

ADVERTISEMENT

Heesen’s YN 18650 Project Boreas was christened Erika and delivered to its owner in August.

The 164-foot (50m) full-aluminum motor yacht has a fast displacement hull form designed by Dutch hydrodynamicists Van Oossanen and engineered by Heesen’s in-house naval architects. It is propelled by two MTU 12V 2000M72 engines rated at 1,080kW each.

According to Heesen, the vessel proved to be extremely quiet during rigorous sea trials in the North Sea and reached a top speed of 20 knots, exceeding contractual speed.

Designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, the yacht features a contemporary, forward profile, while a lack of fashion plates creates the illusion of suspended upper decks and hardtop, adding a sense of lightness. Mark Whiteley worked closely with the owner on the interior design, which includes a nickel mesh wall covering by French artist Sophie Mallebranche.
