Heesen delivers Azamanta to owners
Heesen Yachts has announced that following her recent sea trials in the North Sea, YN 17255 Azamanta has been delivered to her owners in international waters.
With an overall length of 55 metres, Azamanta is the world’s first Fast Displacement steel-hulled yacht over 50 metres.
Azamanta was launched earlier this year in May 2015 and her sea trials took place between 17-18 June. She exceeded the contractual speed by 0.4 knots, reaching a top speed of 16.9 knots.
The owner’s representative, Bilderlings Wealth, said, “We are very pleased with Azamanta; she is the expression of a passionate and experienced yacht owner who built a yacht to travel the globe and explore exotic destinations. Her ice-reinforced steel hull and her unusual colour scheme will enable her passengers to safely, comfortably and elegantly cruise also in high latitudes.”
