Earlier this month Heesen announced the delivery of their seventh Aluminum 5000 class yacht named White. The 50 meter/164 foot semi-displacement motor yacht was launched back in February of this year in the Netherlands and has just completed extensive sea trials in the North Sea.
Heesen commented that, “White proved to be very responsive during her sea trials, reacting to steering commands instantaneously thanks to the large rudders in conjunction with the power steering unit. Her powerful bow thruster in combination with the propellers optimized for her speed range, allow the vessel to be maneuvered with confidence in close quarters even in windy conditions.”
Her sleek hull and exterior lines are the work of Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, while Cristiano Gatto worked closely with her owners to create a sophisticated interior design that would fit the unique requirements of family living. With one of the largest volumes of any yacht her size, White and her sister ships offer owners ample space for entertaining and spending time with friends and family. Onboard there are five guest suites in addition to a full-beam owner’s stateroom which allows her to accommodate up to 12 guests.
Spread across her four decks are a variety of spaces ideal for outdoor living. Her 70-square meter sun deck is one of the largest on a yacht of this size and boasts a jacuzzi and ample lounging space. She also boasts a lounge area on the foredeck, while on the main deck the salon connects with the terrace to create a 25-square meter space ideal for entertaining.
Heesen is currently working on the construction of White’s sister ship, YN 18750 Project Aster, at their Oss shipyard and she is scheduled for delivery in June 2019.
