Heesen sells Project Alba

Project Alba Heesen

Heesen Yachts have sold YN 18050, Project Alba. Arne Ploch at Camper and Nicholsons introduced the client.

Project Alba is the third new build contract Heesen have sold in 2015. Construction started before the sale.

Heesen currently have ten yachts under construction which are being delivered between now and 2018. This includes their first hybrid, 50 metre Project Nova.

Project Nina and Project Ruya are also under construction.

Project Alba has the largest volume of any yacht of her size and still will reach a maximum speed of 23 knots with two MTU 2,800kW engines.

Exteriors have been designed by Omega Architects with interiors from Francesco Paszkowski, marking his third collaboration with Heesen Yachts in this 50 metre semi-displacement class.

“The interior design we created with Margherita Casprini” Paszkowski said “We played with contrasting colours, light and dark, and lacquered surfaces and finishes to further emphasise the airy brightness of the interior. Natural leather and stone were selected to create a warm and welcoming ambience and provide a coherent style throughout the yacht.”

Delivery is scheduled for January 2018.
